I made most of these a long time ago, but I just got around to photographing and posting them. For some reason the pictures still aren't very good (even though I jacked my mummy's camera...shhh). I'm starting to think it's an operator error.
Anyways, first up is a little chibi version of Fred Weasley (my favorite!). I made him out of polymer clay, acrylic paints, and some nail polish. A little bit of his hair broke off, I don't know if it shows in this picture. I was so upset when it happened that I almost cried. Though it was my fault; I left him in my purse for too long.
I put a little ring in the top of his head so I could attach him to a keychain or something, but now I'm a little afraid he might break. Polymer clay isn't the most durable substance known to man...
Not a very good picture, sorry. I was trying to get a close up of his little face, but the flash kept reflecting off the topcoat and making a glare.
Another crappy picture, but you get the idea.
Next is my Luna Lovegood jewelry set. They have this at the WB grave, but it's like $50, so I decided to make my own substitutes. I made her radish (Dirgible Plums) earrings, her cork necklace, and her beetle ring.
Radish/Dirgible Plum earrings. These took me about 10 tries until I got an end result I was really happy with. I tried beading them for about four or five tries, then I switched to clay and finally achieved near perfection (not). No kidding either, I started these last summer before HBP came out, I had some not very good ones that I wore opening day to the movie theatre, then I finally had these good ones by Halloween for my Luna Lovegood costume.
Next her Butterbeer cork necklace, to keep away the Nargles. This was really no great feat; all I did was stick an eye pin into a cork and thread a piece of blue yarn through it. But I still eat it.
Then her beetle ring, which I never remember seeing in any of the movies, but it was on the WB site, so I tried to make one. The one they had was beaded, but that failed, so I switched to clay. It's not very good, but it served it's purpose.
Then finally, I made a little DA pin that was based off the necklaces they have at the WB grave. It's not very good quality, as it was made very hastily a few hours before my Halloween party. My friends so nicely pointed out to me that it wouldn't make sense to walk around sporting a pin advertising a secret and illegal club, but I don't care. It's cool.
If you can't tell from the absolutely terrible picture (you probably can't) it says "Dumbledore's Army" around the sides and "D.A." in the center. All I did was cover an old pin with a slab of clay, carve the letters into it with a toothpick, and paint it silver. Not very good quality at all.
So, that was a lot of stuff, but anyways, hope everyone likes it! Comments are appreciated!
