EDIT: Well, I didn't make it into the semi-finalists, but I still had lots of fun making this guy! Congrats to the finalists of the 9 Contest!! You guys totally deserve it!
This is my Beasts of 9 Contest entry! It took about two weeks to collect and build this guy, and I had a TON of fun using all sorts of different old materials to make him. He is posable, has a swivel head and pivotable legs, and lights up in his belly and head. He has a big sucking-type syringelike nose, for draining YOUR ESSENCE (:<. The essence goes through his nose, into the little bottle of red liquid inside his head, down the plastic tubing neck and collects in his glowing red belly.
He's called the HemoGoblin because I wanted him to be very mosquito-like. I HATE mosquitos, they make me very nervous! So when I wanted to make a monster that would be scary to me, I thought of a mosquito.
His belly glows red with a little light inside, and the bottle of red liquid in his head is also illuminated, both with battery-charged lights.
He is 2 feet high, 1.5 feet long. He is very good at giving people tetanus. There is no way to pick him up without cutting yourself on something rusty and metal, and I have the scars to prove it XD
