The Junk Lady

I don't know how many of you grew up watching Labyrinth, like I did, but that is where this idea came from.She is not the same goblin as Sarah talks to in the movie (but if you pay close attention, you can see others moving around in the background) The whole scene kinda freaks me out because you have to wonder if all the goblins are lost children. Jerath says he can turn the baby into a goblin, and while Sarah talks to the Junk Lady, the old goblin pile things on her back and she begins to resemble one of them. Being a packrat by nature, this both intrigues and horrifies me.But back to the subject. This is also a puppet/costume which leaves none of me visible. I turned my hiking back pack into the base of the junk pile and covered it with so much junk you couldnt see me, just the goblin whose head was about 4' off the ground. Her mouth moves, though not as well as I would like, and the hand not holding the lantern was an extension of my own arm so I could reach out and touch people.This past halloween wasn't a financially good time for me, so every sinle piece of this was found objects and stuff I had lying around. (told you I am a packrat) so I didn't have to buy a thing. since I wanted to recover my back pack, and because it takes up so much space (and renders one of my dressforms unusable for anything else) I took apart the pile of stuff, so I now have onle the top half of the goblin hanging out in the garage with Lucifer.
