1  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 15 ENTRIES / Zombie Corps(e) de Ballet on: October 02, 2006 01:18:32 PM

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present the World's First All Tyrolean Ballet! Unfortunately, due to a tragic theatre fire, they are all zombies. Please note that there will be no ticket refunds and you should be aware that they are going to try to eat your SWEET DELICIOUS BRAAAAAAINSSSSSS...


There are 7 little ballerinas in total, all with popped eyes, cracked skulls and entrails... ewwwww.

There are more details and larger picures on my blog: http://rightsidesfacing.efx2.com/view/62476
2  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 9 ENTRIES / 30 Year Retrospective 2-D Me! on: February 05, 2006 12:52:31 AM
I usually miss the craft challenges, so I was very happy to see this one in time to participate! I immediately knew that I wouldn't be able to make a doll, because I tend to get carried away and there was no way I'd finish in time. What to do?? Well, I've always wanted to make a paper doll of myself and this was just the motivation I needed [as well as the stipulation that I would only be allowed to watch my 'Corpse Bride' DVD if I finished my craft project Cheesy].

Sample pictures first, explanation after. You can check out my Flickr photstream to view all the images - 27 in total - at a larger size.:

I took 4 days to develop the concept [30 Year Retrospective of Crimes Against Fasion I am Guilty of Committing] and final doll base to use. In order to limit my craziness, I decided to only draw 1 outfit to represent every year. QUITE the challenge! Clothing is such an important part of my life - and always had been - that when I think back to a certain time of my life, I remember what I was wearing first and then the other memories slip into place around that. 1996 and 1997 were especially difficult to only choose 1 look for Smiley The clothes were drawn out, traced and inked and then coloured with pencils - no photoshop colouring! Then the drawings were scanned and I assembled the final images using PS. I also included photos wherever possible. As the background to every page I included a recap of the year's important events and the key items of clothing that I wore.

This was a lot of work and a lot of fun! Thank you, Craftster, for giving me the opportunity and inspiration to complete this gift to myself and to be an active member of this community  Grin

Thank you for looking  Cheesy

3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Handmade felt fairy doll on: June 28, 2005 07:28:04 AM
A very good friend of mine celebrated her birthday on Sunday and I wanted to make her something really special. Via a rather circuitous inspiration process, I came up with the idea for a fairy doll based on her personality and appearance. Meet Flelph:

She is 18" tall and made from felt. I developed the pattern and costume myself and had a fabulous time playing with beads and trim and wire, oh my! I constructed a support stand for the doll - can't let those pretty little legs get all bent and misshapen! - as well as a velvet-lined display box.

As is usually the case, I got totally carried away and before I knew it there was a tiara (for my friend to wear) and a fairytake storybook to go along with the doll, both also in their own display box.

It took me a month of solid work in every spare moment I had and I absolutely enjoyed every single second of it. Birthdays are my favourite excuse to craft Grin

(There are a lot more pictures hosted at my crafting journal for anyone who is interested.)
