181  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Re: Fetus Popple (image laden) on: January 09, 2006 09:22:22 AM
Just wondering... What is the approx. gestational age of this popple? 

I was shooting for about week 6, since I really wanted to show the fingers forming from the hand paddles. 
182  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Fetus Popple (image laden) on: January 07, 2006 10:07:20 AM
I made this 3 years ago for Embryology class, and I was inspired by the Knitted Digestive System  to post it here.  The concept is ripped off of Popples, those vaguely mammalian stuffed toys that 20-somethings might remember; they could turn inside-out with a little pouch-thing on their back, so that all you could see is their tail sticking out of a little ball.  I thought the gimmic would be a useful way of illustrating the various pouch-within-a-pouch structure of fetal membranes.

So, here he is in action...

Here's the concept of how the fetus would look in situ.  Imagine one end of the chorion and amnion have been sliced off, along with the chorion's connection to the uterus around the borders of the placenta.

And finally, some pictures with the bits labelled.

Caveat: I think I could have done a better job with the face; the fetal face is a mess of lumps and weird bulges at this point, and if I were to make it again, I'd probably make a Sculpy head and sew it onto a stuffed body (like an embryonic version of a real doll...).  I apologize for any anatomical errors I may have committed; there's no excuse for that, I just suck.

freaky, those very cute wristwarmers look exactly like my favorite sweater (from wal-mart Sad ).  color, guage, cable pattern and everything.

i like the hats, and the photo of your bf representing for crafty guys, so sorry if my comment veers slightly off topic.  seeing the picture of you in the slubby hat with your dreads reminded me of a hat i saw that one of my former fellow art students made.  he had dreadlocks for a long time, and when he finally cut them off, he turned them into this beehive-esque hat, by somehow sewing them together, a little like a rag rug or something.  future project maybe?
185  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Please post your best costume... on: November 11, 2005 10:07:28 AM
thebeat cowboy:  Those cotumes rock!  You're in Cleveland or surrounding right?  I was supposed to go to that Halloween show, but had another one on that night.  the Boys From County Hell are amazing, and they get 1000 more points on my list for those costumes.  I'm sorry I didn't go.

yeah, it's those boys from the county hell.  their halloween shows keep getting better and better, i'm not sure what they're going to do next year.  (though if there's anywhere i can find amazing suggestions, it's from the absurdly creative folk here at craftster.)

Didja get to see the show last year?  they did the Ghostbusters, and did the Ray Parker Jr. thing too.  my contribution was slimer, on the left.

OMG , that is my favorite, I LOVE the muppets! I want my whole familyt o be that next year, of course I am sure my 6 year will have  to be some superhero instead, but maybe I can talk my 3 year old into being kermit and me Miss Piggy.  That is so awesome, great job!

super grover!  does that count as a super hero?  the best part was that the band performed muppet songs: "can you picture that?", "tenderly", and "rainbow connection".  i'm not ashamed to admit i cried during "rainbow connection".  there are some pics of them rocking out at the happy dog bar's website.

My best costume isn't really my costume, and it's not really one costume, and it's not exactly the entire costume.  This year the Boys From the County Hell chose the Electric Mayhem Band as their Halloween theme (after some enthusiastic lobbying from me).  I made the heads and select parts of their costumes from the neck down, though they deserve loads of credit for coming through on the majority of the costumes (and shaving their legs, in Janice's case.  That's taking one for the team.)
