1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Fancy Schmancy Corpses....in my hair on: August 06, 2010 06:38:45 PM
I've always thought that birds have the most beautiful skeletons of animal animals that I have seen yet. So imagine my delight, when, walking home one day, I found, sleeping gently upon the mulch, a bird corpse with very little of the flesh and feathers remaining. I ran to the safeway to get some disinfectant and gloves, and, to the amusement of passersby, spent a good hour in front of the safeway peeling the remaining flesh off of the departed dear. Ah... but what was this? The disinfectant was dissolving the bone! I quickly pulled it out of the now-grimy liquid, and lo! in the thinner sections of the skelly, the bone had become translucent! I was stunned by the beauty, and so, of course, I had to it on my head (because god knows, my head needs all the help it can get.) The result lies below.

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Look Ma! I'm an 18th century Prostitute! on: July 27, 2010 05:02:12 PM
This is the first piece of clothing I've made from scratch, and it is all handsewn. Needless to say, it needs a leotard underneath it/ Furthermore, it is not quite finished, but as my first project, I could not resist posting it. I'll try to get better, less blurry pictures once its completed

As always, please excuse the ugliness of my face, and my scoliotic ribs Smiley

3  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Victorian Clown Eyelashes on: June 27, 2010 08:25:40 PM
I was bored today, so I decided to make some clown eyelashes (i.e. eyelashes made out of clowns.) So I grabbed some 19th century die-cut scraps, a pair of drugstore eyelashes, metallic foil, a gold leaf pen, AB rhinestones, and metallic tulle. Then I set to work. This was the result, and for my first pair of modified false eyelashes, I am reasonably satisfied, though I have much to learn.

Please excuse the blurriness and the funny-lookingness of my face:

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / A Spider's Web of Human Hair on: December 01, 2009 03:40:31 PM
  The spider has no silk of its own, so it must weave its webs in and out of the hair of dying humans.  It lays eggs that bear a resemblance to pearls, and the greedy relatives of the dying attempt to snatch them.  However, when they do so, the spiderlings hatch, and insert venom into the would-be-thiefs veins.  This venom at first makes victims believe themselves to be imaginary.  This wears off after a couple hours.  The venom then copies and transfers all of the memories of the ailing into the minds of the would be thieves, and thus the memories are preserved.

The spider is made out of polymer clay, and the web is polymer clay covered in hair. I plan to make it into a hair ornament, if I can find a way to prevent it from falling off my head! Thanks for looking!

She failed to escape the witch's oven, yet she does make a lovely brooch.

6  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Cryogenically Frozen Walt Disney Costume on: November 01, 2009 04:08:26 PM

One of the most prevalent myths about Walt Disney is that he was Cryogenically frozen after death in the hope that one day technology would advance enough to
bring him back to life. For my Halloween costume, I chose to create Walt in his cryogenic fridge.
Tragically this picture was taken before the addition of the moustache. I started the costume on Halloween, and finished it at 9:00 that night. I'm wearing it on Monday to school, calendar be demned.
