The soon-to-be-retired Werewolf Attack Puppet from VFX Creates

While at the West Coast Haunters convention last month we met Doug Schaefer, artist and one of the monster-makers at VFX Creates. I bought a Slaughtered Lamb sticker from him and we got to see a frenetic and very enjoyable demo of the wearable attack zombie puppet that VFX Creates makes.
They also make a werewolf attack puppet! Doug said they’re planning to replace it with a new model, and it looks like the single one they have left in stock is over 40% off. Edit: looks like someone snapped it up!
Here are the details:
The puppet comes with a harness and is light weight (around 12 lbs.) so it can be worn comfortably for long periods of time. The harness is disguised by a 2X black hoodie and a fake arm allows you to control the puppet while giving the illusion that your arm has been pinned to your chest by the hungry werewolf.
It was a pleasure to meet Doug and see him perform with “Sally”. I look forward to seeing the new werewolf he and VFX create.
