Hi, my name is Mary and I make costumes and props for Epic Rap Battles of HIstory.
We built a life sized block of “carbonate” with Adolph Hitler frozen inside for return of Vader vs Hitler. And now here’s a video of how we built it.
Of course, it’s not really carbonate. The block is made from a wooden frame with plywood. We sculpted Hitler out of old clothes stuffed with plastic bags. The face was molded from EpicLLOYD’s real live human face. Oh, and the size panels are just plywood with cardboard hot glued to it. Then it was painted up nice and pretty to look like a solid block of carbonate.
So, yeah…this is what we do.
