Guillermo del Toro Sneak Peek

Just a quick peek at the amazing Guillermo del Toro exhibit at LACMA which, unfortunately, finished its run last Sunday. This incredible tableau by Mike Hill is titled "Forsaken," and depicts the Frankenstein creature about to get rejected by his new-born "bride." Dr. Pretorius stands nearby, watching the proceedings.

The Bride as a ginger? Who knew.

More LACMA photos at my main website.

We belong dead! Being a huge horror fan, I'm bummed to have missed this particular LACMA exhibit. I have seen lots of pics of Guillermo del Toro's collection though and he has collected some really cool items.

Was this the only photo you were able to take of the exhibit?

Thanks, Dave.

Patience Ken - that's why it's titled "Sneak Peek." More to come!

Hey Dave! What were the figures made of? Are they wax? Just wondering.

Always your pal,

Unfortunately the display plaques I saw didn't specify material. Looked like wax...but not sure.

Figures like that are usually sculpted in clay, then molded in silicone & painted. The
torsos & limbs may be made of different materials.

Thanks Anonymous!

Stupid me! And it's right there in the title plain as day. Sorry!

Chuck said...'re saying Elmer McCurdy wasn't involved in the construction of these figures?

Awesome. I love Bride of Frank, and I love Mr. del Toro. I randomly happened to hear a public radio interview with him about this exhibit, and it sounded great. Looking forward to seeing your pics.
