The “Its Alive” Project 2014 showcased nearly 100 unique interpretations of the classic Bride of Frankenstein at Spooky Empire’s May-Hem event last weekend.
80 life size Elsa Lanchester Bride of Frankenstein busts and 10 life sized full body statues were created by 90 artists, with each of their creative works auctioned off to benefit the St Jude Childrens Research Hospital.
Each artist was given a blank resin copies of the Bride’s bust, minus hair, to create their own unique take on the classic character. The stunningly detailed finished works included many original pieces alongside those inspired by pop culture, including Frankenberry, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Captain EO, Harley Quinn, Maleficent, Mars Attacks, and many more.
