I find these sculptures too creepy for an average house, but for a post-modern alternative artsy or horror-themed pub/restaurant/discoteque they would be perfect. They are also super creepy halloween decorations :D

Omg!!! Love this thanks Maddy Cakes!??


Great ideas. Keeping note for Halloween.
Although, incandescent light bulbs and plastic don’t tent to mix very well. May I recommend and edit to using LED bulbs? Cheaper and safer in the long run.

Great concept, mind ☺
