1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Who came first the Chicken or the Egg??? on: March 06, 2010 11:08:29 PM
Now it is possible to answer the age old question of 'Who came first the Chicken or the Egg???'

I give you the ultimate way to answer said question...

Thumb wrestling capes!



In battle (granted one is on my finger -but I needed the other hand for cammera operation! lol)


And in their proper position -both on thumbs Smiley


Happy to hear comments/Criticisms and hypothesis on who would win the battle!

Thnakyou Lmcbride for the first round Tongue

Details of swap:
To continue celebrating the season of Halloween, All Souls Day, and Day of the Dead, for this swap we will be creating small art dolls or other figures that are approximately in the 3"-6" size range.  The theme is creepy, mysterious, dark, otherworldly, ghostly, creepy-cute, just plain offbeat, or otherwise in the "spirit" of the season.    Think zombies, skullies, ghosts, spirits, human/animal hybrids, human/robot hybrids, human/animal/robot/zombie/creepy cupcakes hybrids...   

Use of any and all materials is encouraged! Cloth, sculpting, modelling, altering or assembling, or mixed-media, as long as the end result is in the 3"-6" size range.  You may state your preference as to where you draw the line in terms of certain types of "dark" not being acceptable - for instance, if you definitely do not appreciate dead or maimed babies, or chainsaw horror, but do love creatures that are half human and half animal, or pale, wandering, long-haired ladies endlessly searching for their lost lovers, make sure you speak up when you sign up!

Please check out all of the links below to see a wide range of excellent examples of dolls and figures.  We will be limited only by our imaginations in terms of types of dolls/figures created and materials used!

SIZE REQUIREMENTS: You will be making ONE "mini art doll/figure" for EACH of your swap partners! You will in turn receive one from each of your partners.  YOU MAY BE MATCHED WITH ONE OR MORE SWAP PARTNERS, depending on your preference and the number of participants.

Every effort will be made to match swappers up in groups of your preferred size range.  You will not be put in a group that is larger than your maximum desired group size.  Some swappers may prefer to make only one or two dolls/figures and some swappers may prefer to swap up to 5 or 6 dolls/figures.


You will be expected to check in to the swap thread or gallery once a week so that we know you are alive and crafting!

You will be expected to get a delivery confirmation number when you send your package, if mailing in your country, or to save your mailing receipt if you can't get a delivery confirmation number.  You will also be expected to pm your partner and your organizer: little green dragonfly when you send and when you receive!  These are essential to receiving "good communication" on your feedback!

10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Medusa - ALIVE on: October 06, 2008 12:37:47 AM

I work for local hardware store as a register supervisor.
My team (the reggie people) and i were to have a  small party at the local bowling alley.
It was fancy dress -theme heroes and villans.
I knw the people i work with -none of them would dress up -you could bet on it.
But i still wanted to kind of dress up.
SO the solution was to dress up a doll instead!

I took a large barbie and this is what i came up with...

MEDUSA


Her tentacle/snake like hair is actually an air plant. It will continue to grow
and eventually produce little red flowers!  Grin

Front full body shot:

I painted her skin with a bronze metallic paint .
Her toga was from my own design -no pattern!

Her back:

you can see the back of her toga, with the flower detailing adn the 'shall' scarf thing that goes on the toga.


Close up of her head:

I loved that i kept her fringe -added to the creepy/weird factor!
