Before I begin I need to explain.......I LOVE creepy things but I just can't do them.  It doesn't matter how hard I try my creepy things ALWAYS wind up cute.  Well, for this project I decided to take the cute and run with it so I tried to put it in to cuteness overload.

My vision is what *I* think of every time I hear Alice Cooper sing "Welcome to My Nightmare".  I don't even know what the song is really about because I've developed this visual for it and can't seem to get past it.  Of course this may or may not be what you think of, but of course this is all about MY vision isn't it?  (I like to be stingy sometimes......hee hee)  

Materials:  Sculpey, Balsa Wood, Wire, Aluminum, Plywood, Embroidery Floss and Fabric.  I made every bit of this including painting my own fabric for the quilt when I couldn't find anything similar to what I was looking for (yes, the quilt is also quilted......I used polar fleece as batting).  The base is 13" x 16" at its largest and the bed stands about 6" or 7" tall.

ENJOY and Welcome to MY Nightmare:
