OK...remember a couple years back I was working on the two headed goat rug? Well that project sat around and one day Liz called and said Todd Junker wanted some stoles for his fashion show....so we each knocked one out and mine turned into a chupacabra!
I don't have pics of Liz's yet..but I'll post when I get them.
So we shot the stoles after the show and were so honored to have the extra fabulous and amazing Clint Catalyst model for us along with Adele Mildred!! Clint is the most hysterical and fun guy you've ever met...his page here...http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=1497532&MyToken=bd5d99d5-8ba8-4b63-9150-e8e3dcd2cef9
And...dun da duuun...
Heres a shot of the sheer size of the stole..LOL...not an acessorie for short people..
So, once again...no animals were harmed! The armband has a cockroach screened on it. It is an anti racism statement..if you were wondering. The stole is constructed from 1/2" modeling wire. I then duct taped the wire to the head and used about 75 old grocery bags as stuffing, wrapping them around the wire and taping them. Yes..recycling is good....
The wire is a wonderful thing..because the stole can be shaped and clings to your body. I bought the fur as a remnant for $1.00 a yard...I loved it because it was filthy and old.
As far as constructing the head. I used a rug head from Van Dykes taxidermy catalogue, I believe it was a smaller bear head. The horns are molded from magisculpt. As far as making the head...follow my tutorial here from the rug I made...http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=27267.0
