Ok, I'm not mad at the world, but I did make a Voodoo doll costume and stuck pins through my heart.



I, uh, borrowed the idea from a fellow craftster, I thought it was such a fab idea!  I didn't have any money to spend on supplies, so I made the dress from fabric I bought a few years ago on sale at a custom drapery shop.  The belt, tights, and shoes were all thingos I had already.









I teased my hair into two pigtails and painted big Xs on my eyes with a marker...It took forever to clean it off!!  I had traces of black around my eyes for a couple of days.



I had so much fun!  We hopped around to about five different bars and parties, and even dressed up the next day in the same costumes and went to a Dia de los Muertos party.  Oh, and here's my husby and I, he was dressed as "your mom"...heehee!!

I can tell you, Fall is composed of

1 part dead fish smell
1 part wet leaves
1 part arctic chilled air (not winter chilled variety)
2 parts crunchy walking
a pinch very cold rain
some apples you picked yourself
a few very still moments
a good deal of inner reflection

I like this, I am curious how did you get the 'pins' to stay sticking out like that?

thanks guys! Grin

like so!



I twisted the wire at the base into a spiral, so it would sit flat against my chest.  I pinched a hole only in the red heart, so the pins were sitting between the heart and the dress layers.  Then I sewed them into place (only on the underneath layer, so you couldn't see stitching on the heart) for extra stability.  One of them wasn't cooperating very well and had come loose and fallen out after a couple of hours o dancing.  But apart from naughty one, they sat quite well and didn't jiggle all that much!

love is a verb, not a noun.

Incase you decide to pull out the costume again - olive oil is a great makeup remover. Just close your eyes tight and rub in a few drops, then wipe off with a warm washcloth/cotton bud. It works with waterproof mascara, eyeliner, all sorts! Oils are great cleansers - I had nice red stains on my forehead from fake blood and a bit of baby oil (was at a friend's house so all she had) got it right off when soap and makeup removing wipes couldn't, so I'm sure it'd do its best at getting off marker
