This is an accordion book that I put together and illustrated: The Gang's All Here! Here's the front:
And opened up:
Each page has a face on it, and each face flips up to show the skull underneath:
Ta da! I would highly recommend making these little accordion books...they're really easy and all you need is book board, canvassy book cloth, glue, and paper (I used paper for the long strip, and cardstock for the individual pages and faces.) All the color is paint, sharpie, and colored pencil. Hope you like it!
I made this little guy today after seeing this video from Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories about Bristlebots! I loved the cockroachy movements of the little robot, so I made my own and built this body out of paper around it:
To turn him on, you open up the wings and connect the little red wire to the battery:
Hey guys! So I've been pretty slack about making ATCs recently, but I'm going to try to churn a bunch more out soon! So here's what I've been working on. First of all, two cards for the Love/Hate Valentine swap: This one was for phizzychick, called "I Give You My Heart"
And this was for craftydame, called "Too Much Candy"
And finally, I did this one just for fun. When he folds up, he's the normal ATC size and nice 'n' square.
I got my card from the lovely and illustrious Phizzychick!
I think my picture may have jacked the color up a little (I tried! ), but you can still see Phizzy's devious handiwork: two zombies fighting over a heart! So awesome! I love the anatomical heart and little blood drop (and Phizzy, I hope you like the card I sent you...it's "similarly themed"). She also sent me some BA goodies that were so awesome they couldn't be captured with a modern camera. Thanks Phizzy!
Hey gang! So I've always wanted to own one of those Chinese dragon masks that they make dragon trains with, so recently I decided to make one with a little of my own style mixed in. So here it is (thanks to my awesome roommate and her mannequin head for modeling for me )
Oh! And I wish I had a picture of this, but his teeth and two little pinpricks in his eyes are glow-in-the-dark and look pretty freaking horrifying, since all you can see in the dark are a big pair of jaws and beady little eyes.
Aaaanyway if you want to make your own dragonny friend, what I did was get a thrift store baseball helmet (only about $1.50) and make the basic form out of newspaper and masking tape. Then I took plaster bandages and plastered over the whole thing. I painted it with regular acrylic paint and added lots of detail with dyed/painted paper. The teeth and eye pinpricks are polymer clay. Whew!
Yay, I'm so glad you like it, spooks Here's the amazing stuff I got from her and am now posting ruefully late . But the package is AWESOME and I love it all! Here are the lovely items:
First off, some super nifty shrinky dink tags! I'm sorry to report that the one attached to my cellphone was taken out in the pouring rain and became a bit smudgy...learned my lesson for the other shrinkies
And an AMAZING keychain that is currently travelling about with my keys:
A sparkly, extremely character-appropriate Vince shrine:
And an adorable Vince-the-human-coke-can plushie!
Here's some detail of my favorite part, the fuzzy boots!
And obviously spookshowbaby did a little stalking, because she included a my little pony! Yeah, I love them and am extremely dorky. But super appreciative!
Thank you SOOoooo much, I love everything and apologize for posting so late!
Well, after seeing newagedoll's awesome clay/cloth dolls, I had to have a go. So here he is, Victor the lonely. Shunned as a child for his unnatural neon blue hair, Victor donned a pea coat, dark denim jeans, and some pointy platform boots and never looked back. He now spends his time picnicking in the rain and immersing himself in the world of miniature castles.
Aaaaand the scariest shadow I've ever seen in a picture:
Hope you guys like him...that hair was a pain in the ass
