Nearly Headless Nick
With the new Harry Potter movie about to open, I thought it would be a good time to post this photo of Nearly Headless Nick. This prop, which included a belt and sword and scabbard, was actual size and featured legs which trailed off into an ectoplasmic tail. I built it (along with two Dementors) for the book launch party for "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" at the now, sadly, defunct Shaman Drum Bookshop in Ann Arbor, MI. Nick was suspended between two ceiling lamps over a table loaded with food for attendees.
For some reason I neglected to photograph Nick, or the Dementors, and this photo (courtesy of former Shaman Drum employee, Laura Grey) is the only picture I have.
