It all started with a dream...and an adorable green miniskirt. I've been taking mask-making classes from a local artist and wanted a challenge, and once I saw that miniskirt at H&M, I knew what I had to do!
The mask was papier-mached on top of a clay base that I sculpted (that can be seen at http://www.flickr.com/photos/luminea/2956240251/
if you're *really* curious). I painted it and made the tentacles out of a lightweight air-dry clay. Oh! And the eyes are lenses from a cheap pair of drugstore sunglasses.
The wings were a retconned pair of floofy fairy wings that I basically tore and cut apart and reassembled with duct tape, wire, and more clay. If anyone's read Dan Reeder's "Make Something Ugly For A Change!", I used his technique of soaking fabric in a combination of water and glue and folding it over the frame, which I also papier-mached on top of before painting.
Annnnd this is the result! I had the rest - boots, armwarmers, camisole, and miniskirt - lying around, and assembled it for an unholy synergy of cute and evil: Cutethulhu!
