1  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Billy/Jigsaw puppet prop. on: September 03, 2009 07:28:21 PM
Well, mine isn't technically a puppet, since it has no moving parts, but I can always try again next year.  Grin  He's made out of some wood glue and toilet paper, with a generous layer of plaster on top.  He's a full head, not just the face... he needs more hair... and he'll be getting the rest of his body, plus his trike, in the next few weeks. Cheesy

His head is almost lifesized, I meant to make him more child head sized.  Oops. 

Yes, both Buc-ee and I love him, very much so.  Wink

2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / My first necklace (hooray for gaudiness!) on: January 04, 2007 12:23:15 AM
Yay, I made a necklace today!  I need some better lighting so I can take better pics.  =\  Oh well. 

Okay, I cheated and used a scanner for this shot:

Does it look okay for a first attempt?  =D
3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / What do you mean you haven't even STARTED your costume yet? on: September 02, 2006 04:45:02 PM
Halloween projects are all I've been working on since the beginning of August, haha.  Of course, I have the unfair advantage that Halloween is, literally, my life.  My husband designs, builds, and sells entire haunted attractions (talk about crafty!), and I do most of the scenic design.  Anyhow, here are pics of a few of the things I've done so far this year:

Sorry about this crap pic.  Anyway, this started as just a regular skeleton.  I still have a little work to make the eyelids look better.

This one is a little better, but not much.  These guys look really awesome in person, but they aren't very photogenic, apparently. =(

Here's one costume.  This is how the majority of my costumes look, unless I decide to do something special.  Just tattered and.. gross looking.  haha.

I had found this awesome all white suit at the thrift store for $3.50, so I wanted to do something nicer with it... so I went with burns. =D  It needs a bit more work, but overall I'm really happy with it.  Probably later tonight I'll try to add in some more dark yellow and brown stains.  And I need to re-snip and paint those ends on the bottom and sleeve hems.  They look cheeeeeeesy, but I didn't really notice until I took a look at the pic. ;x

Anyhow, here's the last pic (for now.. muahaha!).  This is my bellhop costume that didn't come out all that spectacular.  But at least it has a before/after pic.  The only thing altered on the original pic is that I had already painted the buttons gold before taking the pic.  They had started as just brown.  Oh, and the hat doesn't look as green in person, I toned it down to match the suit better, but I guess the flash made the original felt color stand out?
My bellboy is SO emo!

Alright *phew* that's all!
