I was asked to make some Halloween decorations for our local coffee shop that displays the stuff I make. Went online and saw a photo of the flamingo skeleton, decided I had to try a couple of these, then I found a photo of the person skeleton being chased by a dog skeleton, and had to make one of those too.

The person and dog skeletons are pretty close to actual bone structure since I took them from photos of actual skeletons. The flamingos are probably not even close to being actual, but they look pretty cool.

The person skeleton is about 65” tall and make from plywood, the flamingos are 28 & 30” high and made from cedar.

I included one photo with a reflection of the Historic Baker Hotel in the window. Since the Baker is haunted, I thought that might be appropriate for the Halloween theme.

WOW! These are really cool. I love the dog chasing a person. A buddy of mine and his wife do a big Halloween party each year and she is always asking me for new stuff each year. I would like to borrow your idea of a dog chasing a person. Great job
