Silent Hill 3 Closer by kramwartap Silent Hill 3 Closer by kramwartap
Closer

Towering horrors that can be found shambling throughout many locations in Silent Hill 3. Closers attack with their long, pendulous arms--using them as bludgeons or making use of the blades concealed within for slashing. Due to their large size and strange anatomy, these creatures are somewhat slow moving, but their long reach helps compensate for this shortcoming.

Trivia: Closers closely (pun intended) resemble the Mandarins (the monsters that swing about beneath the chainlink floors) found in Silent Hill 2. It is likely they are related, if not one and the same.


Materials: Cardboard, white paper, white/hot glue, cloth, and paint.

Dimensions: 24.7 cm/9.7 in. x 13.5 cm/5.3 in. (highest point x widest point)

Thanks!  Mine isn't for sale, but maybe some toy company will make a line of Silent Hill figures someday, NECA probably being the most likely candidate.

What the hell is the material used? Cardboard? The treatment of the surface is superb! It looks like shriveled up penises or something, very very creepy. Fits the source material very well. I don't know how you did it but this is absolutely AMAZING!!!

It's made from papier mache (paper strips and white glue); the wrinkled texture comes from the paper itself.

I did this with barbie dolls once. I made a Closer and a nurse. My cousin is a huge fan of silent hill. He has all the games, posters, etc. You name it he posibly has it. I sold these for him. . . . .He gave me 18 pounds for each. I told him i'll sell them for atleast 5 (original barbie price) but he said if they are that well made then they cost more. I feel bad now

Well, I didn't give it any arm blades, so, unless it grew its own, it'd have to be content with clubbing me, which considering that it's lower arms are hollow, wouldn't even hurt very much (kind of like getting hit with tiny wiffle bats I'd wager).

Very nice.

Though, while being similar in design, Closers and Mandarins aren't the same. Closers represent Alessa's memories of her abusive mother, which is demonstrated in the large, club-like arms. Mandarins represent James' feeling of helplessness and anguish, as demonstrated by them not being able to walk above ground and their limp, useless legs. Also, Mandarins have mouths at the end of their club-arms, while Closers do not.

ah the closer, what i consider to be the most memorable of all silent hill monsters (especially their seizuring necks :) ) . I would seriously consider paying money on one of those.. if it wasn't too expensive anyway, lol. otherwise i'd just make my own. It'd be nice to have a little closer figurine, although i wonder how my family would interpret it >.>
