 Shocked Wow! You are both so talented! That must have been a show to remember, that's so cool! What details and those eyes, how did you do that? Are they carved or sculpted? I love the way all the elements (heads, wigs and clothing) came together. Wish I had been there to see it all. Just fantastic! Thank you for sharing!!!!!

After a bit of searching I found a youtube video of the hair show (which I found a bit boring but i think i'm sick of looking at the heads!!)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=el9m0S_5n40

As for the eyes, they are made from vac form plastic, which is a heatable plastic you can suck around a form to make a shape. We made a solid semi sphere buck by pouring plaster into half a big plastic bubble. I think the bubbles are normally used for xmas decorations, to fill with lollies and stuff. I used the vac form machine at school, thank goodness we had that available, otherwise we would have had to pay a company to do it for us at who knows what cost. The coloured part of the eye is this stuff called mylar, which was scraps left over from a show at school. It's like this mirror paper that you can stretch and staple to things to make your own mirrors. We coloured it with glass paints you can get from an art store. The eyelashes are just fake nylon hair, we used a curling rod to shape them.

There is a mechanism (crude as it may be) inside the eye which we developed so the eyelashes can flutter as the models walk. It was a difficult thing to get right, but we got there in the end.

This is so cool! At first I thought they would look really strange on human heads, but when I scrolled down to the bottom of the post it just looked even cooler! Was it your idea, or were you commissioned to do it? I hope you do post photos or a description of the process, because I am definitely curious!

I'm without adequate words. These are, certainly, some of the most INCREDIBLE things I've seen. They're remarkable, and I want one.
