Fatal Frame 2: Crimson Butterfly lantern

So when I had no internet, I replayed the fatal frame games 1-3. I really loved the save point in Crimson Butterfly, and I remembered I had an old lantern lying around, unused and slightly broken (it had a broken light bulb). So I had this idea of transforming it into a Fatal Frame save point.

I wasn't able to take pictures of before I even started (forgot), and only remembered to take pics of my progress when I started washing the paper.

The paper was plain, but a bit yellowish because it's old, and I added brown washes at the corners to add more age in it. Also painted the crimson butterflies on each side.

The hardest part I think is cutting the stencil. I had cardboard (no idea how thick but it's thick cardboard) and then painted it black. I actually have a black foam board, but it's way too thick for my liking so I used the cardboard and painted it with black acrylic. I actually just used a masking tape to stick the stencil on the paper, but I plan on using glue later.

Finally, added woodstain on the wood to make it darker.

The lantern has a dim glow. (You can save now.)


  1. Excuse me..I'm interested with these lantern of yours..which you create based of FATAL FRAME series..I would like to use it for my short film..horror and thriller possible if I would like to borrow..or buy it..?

  2. What do you mean by borrow? Do you mean the picture or the actual lantern?
