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.....

IT LIGHTS UP!!! HOW MAGICAL!

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!!! 

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

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.
