This past GeekWeekEnd I was privileged enough to view THE IT'S ALIVE PROJECT as it debuted at Spooky Empire's May-Hem Convention in Orlando. 90 artists ranging from propmakers to make-up artists to sculptors (including Steve Wang and Face Off Alumni) got together to create their own unique takes on a bust of Elsa Lanchester from The Bride of Frankenstein ... the results were amazing. 034

The Facebook page can be found here and you will find more information about the artists who participated and how you can help St. Jude's and possibly own one of these unique masterpieces. Here is a little bit about the project, now in it's second year. There will be a few more opportunities to see these in person before the auction in the fall.

The "Its Alive" Project is a non profit charity event benefitting St Jude Children's Research Hospital fund.

The "Its Alive" Project 2014 celebrates The Bride of Frankenstein by presenting 80 re-imagined Life Size Elsa Lanchester Bride of Frankenstein Busts. In addition to the busts, there will be 10 special life sized statues created as part of the collection. Each of the 90 artists will be asked to recreate the Bride in their own vision, style and hand. You will be amazed and frightened by what can happen when these talented artists unleash their creative monsters on this unique and terrifying project. See creations from some of the top local artists as well as Professional Monster Makers from across the country. All proceeds from the auction of these busts will benefit the St Jude Children's Research Hospital.

And now a sampling of the amazing work.
