Hatbox Ghost

The Hatbox Ghost is probably my favorite ghoulish prop of all time. I can’t explain why I love it so much, but in my opinion it’s top notch. Perhaps it’s all in the eyes.

Apparently, a life-sized Hatbox Ghost was recently auctioned off for $9,300 at the D23 Expo.


This ghost was extremely labor intensive. Creators Kevin Kidney and Jody Daily employed their finest skills in engineering, sculpting, woodworking, painting, sewing, metal and plastics construction.

The ghost’s body is plastic and wood armature on a wooden base designed to resemble attic flooring. The cane is reinforced steel, his hairpiece is sewn nylon fiber, and he’s covered from head to toe in sheer chiffon fabric held together by hand-stitching. The hands, head and feet are molded resin.

  6. I’ve been surfing online greater than three hours these days, yet
    I by no means found any interesting article
    like yours. It’s beautiful value enough for me.
    Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made just right content as you did, the web will likely be a lot more useful than ever before.
