The Birmingham Horror Con has announced a team-up with the Monster Charity Project 2017 to launch a year of fund-raising events.

From the press release:

Frankenstein's Monster as you have never seen him before, completely customised in unique designs by some of the UK's top artists from the prop-making and movie Special FX make-up industries.

25 of the UK's top prop-making, sculpting and SPFX make-up artists have been brought together to take part in a unique charity project. Each artist has been given a bespoke Frankenstein-inspired monster bust, created and supplied by SVFX University of Bolton Special & Visual Effects team, with the simple instruction: Customise him into any design you like.

Once customised, the artists then donate the finished bust back to the Monster Charity Project organisers who will auction them off via an online auction site. 100% of the proceeds raised from the auction will be donated to Make-A-Wish UK. All the artists and the back room project crew donate their time and skills totally free of charge.

The project and busts will be going on a UK tour during 2017 starting at Birmingham Horror Con.

People will be able to start viewing the completed busts from May 2017 via various social media outlets and the above-mentioned conventions, the project busts then go to auction on October 31st, 2017, ending November 5th, 2017.
