At the end of the school year, the art seniors at my school get to paint their own chair so they will be remembered for years to come by the bottoms of their fellows.  I decided to do something a little bit different and upholster one of our wooden school chairs.  I grabbed one that was partially carved into that noone could use for painting and set to work.

here was the idea:


and here was the 80s magenta prom dress my boyfriend wore for our English class video:


I sewed the lips first, then attached teeth made of scrap canvas.  The tongue was next, made from scrap neon pink spandex that I think we used to make my princess dress in 4th grade. Finally, I stapled it all to the chair with great enthusiasm. 

The end result:


an action shot:


And finally, covered in drool (snatched from the lining of Dress Monstrosity):

yea, that's what my art teacher said, too. Tongue  It hadn't occurred to me until she said it, but it is a little bit strange to sit on.  It almost seems . . . invasive.  Thanks for looking, everyone!

Karma Chick -- it was an adaptation of The Merchant's Tale from Canterbury Tales, only we switched gender roles in the movie to increase the hilarity.   He actually looked quite lovely.  He played the virgin maid who makes her old, blind husband cuckold.  I was the husband.

  I really love the Rocky Horror Picture Show, and I actually found out in art class this year that those lips were inspired by a piece by one of my favourite artists, Man Ray.
