This is a bust of Governor Willam MacCorkle that I was commissioned to create quite some years ago for display at Sunrise Museum when it was still housed in MacCorkle's mansion on Myrtle Road. The bust was a centerpiece of an exhibit about Governor MacCorkle's life and remained there until the museum came under new curatorship and was turned into the science center. I have no idea what became of the bust once the exhibit was dismantled. The bust was sculpted of clay and ultimately cast in solid plaster and painted to look like bronze.

This witch prosthetic mask was made for the Charleston Light Opera Guild's production of Into the Woods waaaay back in 1992...or '93...heck, I forget the year. Anyway, it's made of foam latex and glued onto the actress's face. These photos were taken by Craig Cunningham for a Daily Mail article they did and he graciously gave me copies afterwards.

Venturing away from mascots for a few posts and into the world of masks & make-up. Here is my own Predator mask and costume that I made waaay back in 1987. This was only the second latex mask I had ever attempted, the first being a rather crude Freddy Krueger. I also made the Predator's face shield from fiberglass (not pictured). The armor for this costume is basically cardboard and model parts. The shoulder cannon was moveable by means of two servo motors attached to it and was remote controlled from about twenty feet away by a second person. It was cool because people would come up to me, the cannon would raise up and point at them...then follow them as they moved. Some people would wave their hand in front of the cannon thinking there was some sort of electronic eye it or something.
