Poes are ghost-like spirits of deceased beings who hold hatred towards the world. They can be found in dark places such as graveyards, empty fields, plains, and caves. Once defeated, they drop their soul-housing lanterns which can be picked up and housed in a glass jar.
Created this as another Halloween costume, wandering length of Santa Monica Boulevard.
I managed to find one blurry photo of the finished creation!
Want to create your own Poe lantern?
I used a combination of wire, bubble wrap and fabric to create the more organic shape of Poe.
The lanterns was created with laser printed acrylic that had tissue paper applied to the inside. The lantern held an LED candle that flickered.
