My partner for the Sideshow Swap, coocoosnest noted that she likes conjoined, creepy and disturbing things.  My kinda gal!  After much research and consideration, I figured she would enjoy a two headed fetal pig in a jar.  I mean, who wouldn't?   Cheesy 

The banner is printed on cloth, and strung between poles made from candlesticks and chopsticks.  The base is the top of a cigar box. 






The pig is made from polymer clay, suspended in a pimento jar (I do love to make pimento cheese).  I was able to find lots of reference photos for the specimen online. 



The only thing I didn't have in my stash was the light, which I picked up at Michaels in the floral department.

I think this whole display is great!  I love all the wording on the sides!   Cheesy  The pigs look appropriately pulpy.

lovely job on the details...just a fun piece to look at..I love the lighting...it adds to the spookiness...the pigs are just too realistic...too bad pimento cheese had to be sacrificed to get that little jar... Grin

What a great way to make a banner!  How did you make the chopsticks not wobbly?

Thanks!  It really wasn't hard at all.  The base is a candlestick, so there was a just right sized depression for them to sit in while the glue dried.
