It all started with a dream...and an adorable green miniskirt.  I've been taking mask-making classes from a local artist and wanted a challenge, and once I saw that miniskirt at H&M, I knew what I had to do!



The mask was papier-mached on top of a clay base that I sculpted (that can be seen at http://www.flickr.com/photos/luminea/2956240251/ if you're *really* curious).  I painted it and made the tentacles out of a lightweight air-dry clay.  Oh!  And the eyes are lenses from a cheap pair of drugstore sunglasses. Wink



The wings were a retconned pair of floofy fairy wings that I basically tore and cut apart and reassembled with duct tape, wire, and more clay.  If anyone's read Dan Reeder's "Make Something Ugly For A Change!", I used his technique of soaking fabric in a combination of water and glue and folding it over the frame, which I also papier-mached on top of before painting.



Annnnd this is the result!  I had the rest - boots, armwarmers, camisole, and miniskirt - lying around, and assembled it for an unholy synergy of cute and evil: Cutethulhu!

Oh my goodness! That turned out way better than I would have imagined if someone had just described it to me and I hadn't seen the pictures. Cutethulhu is definitely the right name for it! Grin Great job!

But we have flamethrowers. And what this indicates to me, it means that at some point, some person said to himself, "Gee, I sure would like to set those people on fire over there. But I'm way too far away to get the job done. If only I had something that would throw flame on them."
