Foam Knife Prop (Chucky's knife)

Last year my son was Chucky from Child's Play! I made the entire costume for him and the last thing I did was construct his weapon. I actually tried finding an actual prop weapon small enough to look proportionate to his body but wasn't able to. I needed something small and soft enough that it couldn't hurt him either. I grabbed some thick craft foam I had and went to work!

I just free-handed these and cut them out. I use metallic paint and regular acrylic paint for the symbols. The finished piece look great and more realistic than I had imagined. We just used these for photos so he wasn't carrying it around the entire night. Notice the paint coming off of the knife handle. I didn't seal it or anything at that point and I did end up making two along with a mini-hammer!

And here's a pic showing my crazy Halloween mess I make each year with my cat in the background. Haha!

Looking forward to Halloween 2020

Although our Halloween party and home haunt are out of the question for this year, it doesn't mean we can't celebrate in a different way. I already have an alternate way to celebrate that involves just being home and doing a mini haunted trail for my son. I'm also already doing some online Halloween browsing and came upon a few items that I really want! I haven't ordered anything yet but I thought I would share them here!
