While it might be cool to tell your friends that you used Egyptian mummification techniques to keep your grandma’s body around forever, the fact that they are slowly backing away should clue you in that it isn’t the best idea. Instead, settle for some mummy figures and decor from the reliable sellers on eBay. Mummies, with their ornate trappings and elaborate burial rituals, have fascinated people for centuries, and they're the stuff of classic horror movies. You don’t have to wait for Halloween to roll around to decorate your house with new mummy figures, but the full-sized prop might be best kept in storage until it’s socially acceptable to scare visitors. If your animated mummy has a tendency to come to life when the doorbell rings…well, at least you won’t have a problem with unwanted solicitors. Complete your mummy collection with a mask and some white bandages so that you can pose alongside your mummified plastic companions.
