Oh WOW. I don't know whether to cry, scream, eat it, steal your fingers... That's amazing. The windows, the shingles, the chimney... everything. Amazing. I cannot get over the idea that this is your first gingerbread house! BEST EVER!!
I don't understand how someone could look at this and ask, "What are you supposed to be?" XD You should have just lunged at their necks, growling. It's just too awesome to have to put up with stupid. The costume's great, and I mean REALLY great, but your makeup is what totally wins. I like the spell/incantation/equation thing across your chest, too. Nice touch.
I'd like to buy you for my next Halloween party. You're a freakin' ornament. You're EYE CANDY. Find those people who asked what you were and go feral on their @$$es.
(I know I'm late and it's an old thread, but I don't care!
Thanks you for this. I've had the globs and the idea for, um, a year or so now, and I've obsessed over the right kind of glue. I thought getting glue to be clear enough would be much harder.
I would also like to thank you for using the highly technical and correct terminology of "glob", "sploodge," and "smoosh" in your tutorial. Yaaaasss! I look forward to finding more technical language in more of your tutorials. I'm a big fan of smoodging, myself. Flobbling is also good, but harder to come by.
Interesting idea, Confuzzle and WMA. Mom was tested by her dermatologist for a bunch of things, and I have to assume that, since she was told lanolin, the test used pure lanolin. She's had problems all her life that this allergy suddenly made sense of - changes in lotion or cosmetics bothered her, and she never, ever liked wool. I've just assumed that that's why I didn't like wool.
I *have* touched a few different wools from different sources, including some that had to be done by non-industrial types, and I am pretty sure you've just reawakened a memory that there WAS some that I was just amazed by. I will have to pay more attention in the future and seek some out! That would be so cool if it turns out I could do stuff with actual wool! Thanks for the ideas!
Water bottle holder is excellent. I love the choice of quote! The mug is ...just.... ooo! I like that it's not too cutesy. It's just well-done. What I love about swap galleries is not just how well these things are done, but the ideas of what to do. I just sit here in awe and fascination. (I was trying to think why the name "Aethelburga" rang bells... does the name "Marianne Engel" sound familiar to you?)
I like the tiny Moist hat! Lady "Adora" T, you gonna make it into a tiny fascinator? XD I'm so glad you got a piece of Moistness since the DWcon was so devoid of Moists this time. Someone really should mass-produce postmaster hats. They're one of my favourite DW symbols.
And I also LOVE THE PUZZLE! I wanna know what all the pieces say! I really like Rob going his own way. Winning touch. XD I would have tried to do one over-all picture on the puzzle out of laziness. That's a lot of small ideas to fill a puzzle like that, but it looks cool this way in pieces or put together. The more I look at it, the more I like it. Whee!
I really love this, and I love your name for it. Is your hair by any chance...orange? Vincent can have his own spin-off series, if I take over the world. That episode made me draw some crazy stuff, too.
You know, this is really cool. I'm sitting here trying to put this in words... XD I can't exactly *see* the painting in your bracelet... I mean, I look at it and think, "but that's not like the painting at all. Shouldn't it be gold instead of silver?" and such, but...no, it shouldn't be different. It has the feeling of the painting, and it's perfect. It really reminds me of the bit where Vincent is lying with the Doctor and Amy and they're looking up at the stars, and the special effects guy "paints" the painting in across the stars as Vincent is describing it. It somehow captures that transformation more than just the painting.
I like these a lot. Great way to handle wooden beads! I love that you've made them good enough to put next to pearls... and I am a pearl addict. I *totally* get what you mean about hoarding them! I am going to try to let this inspire me to stop hoarding my pearls and start doing things with them. I'm just always afraid that what I do might not be good enough, because I love them so much.
I like these! I rocked them too! I thought fabric and paper beads were such a cool idea when I first heard of them years ago... then saw some in person and was hugely underwhelmed. You have completely restored my faith! I really really like these.
