The board won't let me post links yet, but do a GIS for "Creeple Peeple" and you'll see 'em.
They were like homemade Trollkins but creepier, plus you made 'em yourself. Fun stuff...actually, the ones my brother and I made always came out like sh*t and fell apart, but the "making" part of them was a hoot. And dangerous. I really did burn myself on ever try. I think that was part of the appeal, y'know? Being a kid and messing with something dangerous.
