22  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Conjoined Pumpkin-Head on: October 17, 2012 09:14:33 AM
I made this for mlheran for the swap Vintage/Retro Halloween although in retrospect I went for a more antique-y look.  My craft partner really made it easy for me when she said she loved pumpkin heads and skeletons and physical anomalies.  It was like BAM! Conjoined Pumpkin-Head!

My initial plan was to make a wire armature and cover it with paper mache, but the armature was a bit too small and slippery for paper mache (or I lacked the finesse) so I switched to covering the body with sculpy.  For the pumpkin heads I ended up ditching the wire armatures in favor of plain ol balled up newspaper.  After baking, I sanded them down a bit and painted it with acrylics. The heads were attached by a rod and E6000. Im really pleased how it turned out, especially since my experience with sculpy is limited.

Entire back and front!

I recieved from mlheran on Saturday but I'm just now getting to posting pics (bad banana!!)  Forgive my crappy photos!

Anyway, I LOVE IT!!!!!  I forget all I mentioned in my questionnaire but I did mention ghouls and devils and dioramas and mlheran totally delivered!  It's something I'm going to keep forever!

A ghoulish cabinet!!!  The three figures stand on their own flanked by a giant devil head!

The drawer is almost my fourth favorite part (am I allowed to have four favorites?) with the vintage trick-or-treaters

All sides were decorated - mlhearn did a really, really -really- great job decoupaging the sides, it's so smooth and professional looking!  What's your secret???

But the best, best most awesome part happens when the lights go out.....


I think the light-up bit should be your trademark mlheran!  Thank you so much for making my first swap SUPER AWESOME!  And thanks kittykill for organizing!!!

Yay!  I'm so glad I got into a holiday swap!

Anyway I picked Santa, the Christmas tree and winter plants!  But perhaps I should have waited until I saw what other people posted, haha my list doesn't seem so inspired!  Oh well, they're classics and I love them!

Oh my wow!!! Look at this gallery!  Everything has been so amazing so far!  I super love the flag with the faces and that owl!  So amazing. 

Definately swap anxiety though... I stuck to the one large item.
