The glitter coffin idea occurred to me, too, but since I'm to be cremated.....  I think I'll just ask to have a pound of assorted colors of glitter mixed in with the powdery residue.    Hmmm... add Plaster of Paris, some water and make me a piece of yard art! 

I want to be yard art!!

haha this discussion reminds me of some weird site I saw on the internet, where supposedly this german bloke had art exhibitions featuring corpses in various ways. Not just generally corpses, but skeletons, skin-stripped bodies doing things... a sort of biology illustration.

That's interesting...I think I would like to see that like seeing a car crash...you know it's bad but you can't help but look.

Gunther von Hagen is the guy who does the art. I find it kind of disturbing, especially since there was the controversy over whether some of his bodies were actually executed Russian prisoners.

     I've told my wife that, if I should leave this earth before her, I want to be cremated and have my ashes put in an old mason jar with some stick on 'googly' eyes on the front and a pipe cleaner antenna on top.  She flatly refuses...which means, I will be forced to haunt her from the grave.

I vote for a groucho disguise instead. Great idea though. It would make me laugh every time I saw it rather than make me sad.

Usernames? Well...in my "real" life I am a librarian. But I'm kind of a "different" librarian as I work with images rather than books. In library school we always talked about breaking down the "bun-wearing spinster nerd" image of librarians (they exist, but there are all kinds of librarians and "guybrarians" out there!). My favorite librarian is...Batgirl! Yep, in the comics batgirl's "day job" was a librarian too. So...to celebrate my superpowers...I picked Batgirl! I was inspired by this fun site: http://www.naughtykitty.org/librarian.html

hmmm...that is a little disturbing especially if the bodies were voluntarily donated..  I guess the best way to learn is on an actual human being, I saw there was link for body donations.

Now I have Jeff Buckley stuck in my head..."Got my red glitter coffin, I just need one more nail". Bodyworlds is in Chicago right now, for any Craftsters in the midwest who are curious. I'm told it's more interesting than creepy in person, but I haven't seen it!

too bad I'm too far south to see Bodyworlds, it would be interesting to at least check it out and I think my younger sister would really like it.  I like the reasoning behind your username...and your username, batgirl

 I can't resist commenting on Bodyworlds.  In the Edwardian period (thats like Jane Austen time, right?), they actually used these methods for doctors to study bodies.  I find it really interesting that this guy sees this process as art now.
