I decided I needed some maggots for my and The ManFlesh's Halloween costumes and decided to make them with stuff I had on hand.  Once I got started, it was hard to decide exactly how many maggots are enough maggots. Everyone knows you can't have too many maggots, but how many is enough?  I made 175, 173 made it through the 4-step process.  It sounds like a lot of maggots, but it doesn't look like all that many maggots.

These are those that aren't set aside for or integrated into the costumes are for snacking.



Yummmmmm, maggots! Little closer:



Baby beetles for baby humans. Delicious!



Contained in that jar are about 130 maggots.  I really like saying (and typing) "maggots."

MAGGOTS!  White air-dry clay, brown glaze to de-white them/accentuate the segments, paint for the mouth, clear glaze.  

Added maggots to The ManFlesh's Halloween costume!

I apologize for any distress and thank you heartily for it!   Wink  When I was trying to decide about setting up a photo I realized it might be a good idea to have some realistic-looking fake meat of some sort in my Halloween decorations.

HAHAHAHAHAHA

I thought the finger was a carrot.

I like the maggots. I am inspired to make some maggot hairclips now.

Mmmm Maggots.
