I wanted something funky and different, something I have never had before, and I love it!

2  Dia De Los Muertos! pic heavy in Halloween Costumes by hotbettie on: November 01, 2010 12:11:18 PM
This year my family and I celebrated Day of the Dead on October 30. Traditionally it's celebrated on November 1 and 2. We all went to Hollywood Forever Cemetery where they have a huge celebration every year. There's music, craft vendors, food, art, and beautiful offerings to remember the dead. I did all the makeup for 7 people.

3  Cursed Pirate in Halloween Costumes by hotbettie on: November 01, 2010 11:52:37 AM
Happy Halloween everyone! This is the costume I wore for Halloween yesterday. I had to work and we were having a costume contest, first prize wins $75! Originally, I was going to go as a regular pirate, but I decided to change it up a bit and went as a cursed pirate. Half skeleton/ half beauty. Hope you like it!

here are two views of my makeup


and the whole look

I've had black hair for the last 6 months and I'm finally back to color! I finally feel like myself again.

5  Mexican style folk art hand painted doors! in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by hotbettie on: October 05, 2009 07:31:54 PM
Well, it took me about a year and a half, but I finally finished!

My sister-in-law (who I live with) is Mexican and loves Mexican folk art and she wanted me to paint 4 doors in her house. I got a little burnt out on this project, but I am so happy that they are finished and I'm quite proud of them.

This if the first door that I painted and is now the bathroom door. It's called La Sirena or the mermaid. This image is similar to the one found in Loteria cards.


Next up is my sister-in-laws door, called La Catrina.

Here's a little history about Catrina. "From the ancient cultures that were established in the Valle de Mxico to the mexicas, every civilization has taken a very special interest in death.  It wasnt sadness or pain, but a mystical influence magical in the way that it became a friend, a faithful confidante, a mysterious conqueror.  

Jose Guadalupe Posada gave it a face, with a sarcastic, ironic touch.  It was through his art that the Catrina and later the Calaca were born. Both feminine personalities are famous icons of death and the top creations of Posada." Also, I have been told that Posada created Catrina as a way of mocking high society by telling them that even though they are rich, they too will die some day.


The third door is the door to my room that I share with my boyfriend. This is a Day of the Dead version of The Virgin Mary.


And last is my nephew's door. Luchadores or Mexican wrestlers.

9  "Camera" Lap Top Bag in Knitting: Completed Projects by hotbettie on: September 10, 2009 09:49:07 PM
I love camera related crafts! I have seen lots of camera shaped coin purses and was inspired to try knitting a cover for my lap top. It won't protect my computer if I drop it, but it does protect it from scratches.
