How to attach props to a corset harness?
For an upcoming production, we need to have an axe stuck into an actor's back. He needs to be able to walk around with the axe sticking out.
Last week, I watched the Making an FX Corset Harness tutorial by Amy Whetsel, and while it is great in showing the process of making a corset harness, I'm missing one essential element: how to actually attach props to this harness.
Amy mentions several times in passing that you can attach a weapon to a fibre glass plate that you then attach to the harness, but after several hours of trying to study the pictures of finished FX harnesses in the course, as well as searching online, I haven't quite found an answer to the question of HOW to do this.
Does anyone have any experience with this? Or is there a follow up to this course that I have yet to discover?
(The production provided us with a prop axe with a foam blade and a wooden handle, but we can make a foam replica if it needs to be light weight.)
