Human fetuses rely on the placenta and the connection between the mother’s blood stream via the umbilical cord to deliver a consistent stream of oxygen and nutrients. Without the umbilical cord there would be no life. Of course, this means it also plays a major role in a lot of birth scenes, and something would seem missing if you had a special effects birth scene without at least a momentary flash of umbilicus to maintain the total suspension of disbelief.
As a special effects artist, you no doubt have a trained hand and eye for taking the ordinary and making it real. That’s why this Flex Umbilical Cord Prop comes without any elevated effects applied to it. This lets you give it a green blood treatment for a Vulcan birth scene, or blue for an Andorian baby all without feeling pigeon holed by the prop makers vision.
