2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: 2013 Christmas Tree Along! on: December 03, 2013 07:17:58 PM
This is our tree this year-- It is Fake -- which is unfortunately the only type of tree we'll ever have in my house as I am highly allergic to real ones Sad!! Bought new tree, star, lights and ornaments this year per my 5 year old DD's request! She wanted a tree with rainbow star & decorations and white lights- so that is what she got + added white snowflakes!!! But to be unique I of course couldn't get a traditional green tree & went with a very pretty black tree instead!!
I just love how simple it is this year!! & the rainbow ornaments stand out so nicely against the black background!!

wow. that's amazing. you should go into business making prosthetics cuz that looks better than the stuff you see in halloween stores, if i wasn't allergic to latex i'd totally commission you to make me some amazingness.

Thanks very much! I do enjoy making them quite a bit!!  BTW there is alternatives to latex... I do recipe using gelatin & a few other ingredients-  I had to find some sort of alternative as I have a friend that asked me to make her a prosthetic , & she is highly allergic to latex!
5  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Zombie girl! on: January 06, 2013 06:55:11 PM
I am very late posting this but wanted to share anyhow... We participate in a Zombie walk every year for charity- my daughter has done the walk every year since she was about 7 months old! (she's almost 5 now)  I've posted a few of our previous zombie costumes here also. This is from 2012's zombie walk! Now that she is older she wanted to go all out and have a really good costume. So mommy obliged her!  We were on the news also- they interviewed us and it was on the news and online!!!!!

Her prosthetic is all custom made since it is practically impossible to find one small enough for lil' ones- the teeth were made from air dry clay & then painted & coated in clear nail polish & the piece itself was made from latex, paint and cotton balls. then it was attached with more latex & tissue- then make-up & blood were added.  Her costume itself is put together with pieces she already owned & a thrift store house coat- I just tore them up & added blood & dirt. The oxygen mask was one left behind in my home by the paramedics one night when I was taken to hospital, I just added blood to it and filled the bag with a coagulated mixture I made from paint, food colouring, water and gelatin and the oxygen tank was made from a 2 liter bottle, some metal tape, paint and left over material from an apron I made for my husband's costume. We also borrowed my mother's wheelchair to add to the effect as she was suppose to be a patient from the hospital. Of course we had horrible weather & it rained almost the entire walk- thankfully her prosthetic held up really well & honestly it probably added to the make-up effects!!  I unfortunately don't have any progress shots but here are some of the finished product!!

6  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Jack Russel pencil drawing. on: January 06, 2013 06:18:29 PM
I did this drawing of  jack Russel for my DD's afternoon teacher as part of her Christmas gift- she owns a Jack Russel and turns out my drawing is actually pretty accurate to what her lil' pooch looks like!! (there is the back story posted below for anyone who is interested!- it's a bit long winded )

A bit of back story- It's my DD's first year in school. We both adore her afternoon teacher (she has a different teacher for morning and afternoon) & she adores my daughter as well. One day after school she held back my daughter and motioned to me & stated "I need to speak with you". Of course my first thought is oh oh what has DD done. so we waited to speak with the teacher once she was finishing dismissing the rest of the students. Of course the anticipation is horrible at this point because she also held back a lil' boy with blood down the front of his jacket... so I'm thinking the worst at this point. But thankfully she just wanted to tell me  "She(DD) made the most beautiful picture today. We were playing with clay (play doh) & most of the other kids just make random shapes- not Reina though, she made an entire scene- snowman, mommy, daddy & herself, as well as trees & everything & it was so beautiful and well done"  My daughter is 4 years old and very artistically talented for her age apparently (she can colour in the lines perfectly & is very good at drawing also). So needless to say I was a very proud mommy at that moment! Reina decided her teacher needed a drawing as part of her Christmas gift- so we found out her favorite animal, which also happens to be the animal she owns as a pet & I created this drawing!! Her teacher was so thrilled with the drawing that she is going to buy a frame for it and hang it in her house!
7  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Pencil drawing of my great nephew! on: August 13, 2012 09:48:34 PM
I just became a great aunt & decided to draw a picture for my niece of her sweet lil' guy! It's been a while since my last drawing & I'm a bit rusty! But I think it turned out pretty good and fairly accurate.

This is amazing!!! I will definitely need to give it a try as my super teeny 4 year old won't fit in most conventional chairs made for children! This looks perfect as it can be taken apart and made tiny for traveling/storage also! Thanks so much for sharing!

Thanks you so much for the feedback! I will definitely try the suggestions for colouring before & the blood ideas are great! I will definitely use some of the techniques next time! I just used the colours I had on hand! Thank you so much! I will use some of your ideas when I do my zombie make-up also!! (we attend a Zombie walk every year for charity!)
