Coraline Custom Plate

This was painted especially for me at Create-A-Memory by a close friend. She used the Promo image as a template, painted on a blank ceramic plate, glazed and fired. I absolutely love it. I cannot imagine ever feeling comfortable eating off it, as I would be too afraid of damaging or breaking it. It sits on display in my dinning room.

The Nightmare Before Christmas Oogie's Boys Scorpion Box

The Scorpion Box that Shock holds during the Kidnap the Sandy Claws song. This little prop is on eBay. Great collectors piece.

The Nightmare Before Christmas Teddy Cart

Christmas Town Teddy Cart from The Nightmare Before Christmas on eBay. Such a simple little prop and yet it is still so interesting.

Boxtrolls Fish Maquette

10" Fish Maquette, sculpted by Kent Melton on eBay. I'm looking at IMDb, and do not see a Kent Melton listed in the credits. He also appears to have sculpted for ParaNorman. I also think that at $8,000 the price is a bit steep (maybe take a zero off that). Looks like the Maquette was originally sold by Heritage Auctions on February 12, 2015, Lot 94171. Photos are definitely from there.

Boxtrolls Baby Eggs Stopmotion Puppet

4" Stopmotion puppet of Baby Eggs from Boxtrolls on eBay. Great photo reference. I am not trying to price bash, but I don't believe that this piece is valued at $15,000. Maybe closer to $1,200 to $2,000.

Might be the same puppet that was sold by Heritage Auctions back in February of 2015. Lot No. 94189
