Nightmare On Elm Street Memorabilia Shadowbox
Jake Hamilton, of Fox News, is one of our clients and one of our shop manager's (Dana) fans. She has framed all kinds of interesting things for him. Recently, he brought in an artifact from the Nightmare on Elm Street series of films with the Freddy Krueger character. Jake explained to us that he was the last person to interview Robert Englund as he was putting on the Freddy Krueger makeup and costume for the very last time, and indicated to R.E. that he was a big fan of the movies. R.E. gave the glove prop to Jake as a memento in a very nice gesture. It is a prop from one of those films that was the steel-tipped claw that Freddy wore on his hand.
Dana created a special , 24 x 20" shadowbox in an Engelsen 6024 deep shadowbox frame. The red and green striped shirt Freddy wore in the film created the inspiration for the red and green striped shadowbox upon which the glove was mounted, along with photos of Jake with Robert Englund, the actor who played Freddy (in and out of costume).
