Daphne’s bedtime surprise

Daphne, from Scooby Doo, is about to go to bed in a creepy old mansion that’s supposed to be haunted. But just as she’s about to hit the sack, she gets a big surprise:

A skeleton shows up in her bedroom, beckoning her a good night’s sleep…perhaps permanently!

Daphne was a reworked Monster Scenes Victim figure. The Skeleton is also from Monster Scenes, reworked from his hanging pose and given a more scary face (which was included with the figure). The skeleton was a nice addition to the Monster Scenes line, and provided me with a new menace for one of my Scooby Doo girls to deal with.

The bed is scratch-built from balsa wood. The mattress and pillow were sculpted from sculpey. I first sculpted the mattess to fit the bed, then baked it until it was firm.

I painted the bed a dark wood color, then painted the mattress and pillow in various shades of blue. The bedsheet is actually a very light blue, more so than the pictures show.

The floor is balsa wood that’s been stained with dark brown paint. I like working with wood; and whenever I do, I try to paint it using watered-down paint that still shows the wood grain.

Looks like the skeleton has got dibs on the bed. Well, would you argue with him?!
