1  A painted box: I canonized my professor without papal consent in Completed Projects by thatgirlwithglasses on: January 03, 2007 11:14:12 AM

A "reliquary", (a trinket box that houses the blessed bones, underwear, or toothbrushes of a holy figure Grin),for my very, very sweet and very saintly art history professor at Hood College.

It says, (I hope), "Here lie the blessed the remains of St. Anne of Hood".

I've never taken Latin so I had to scour the net for crash courses in archaic grammar- I hope I didn't botch it up too much.  This photograph was taken before I decided on the declension of "Hood"- (it's an English surname with no translation, I think I winged it and chose second). Anyway, she seemed please with the result.

If you're into medieval Christian or byzantine symbolism you'll recognize those four figures. The Evangelists: John, Paul, Ringo....
Just kidding.

Oh yeah, and the inside says "[my name] fruit hic"!

Maybe this is weird, I have to say those CHICKEN WINGS look really yummy! How creative... and amazingly realistic! Wow...

Basically I found this crazy eighties cocktail dress at a thrift store in September and wanted an excuse to buy it. Roll Eyes (It was less than five dollars!) So I built up the idea for my costume around it. The dress is kind of bust-accentuating but I wanted something that was more cutesy than "sexy", and I've never been an animal before, so...

I made the wings and the ears were originally a GIANT bow that was sewn onto the front of the dress, (right at the stomach).  Yeah, that looked awkward...

I made these wings just recently out of:
-19 gauge wire (from home depot)
-elastic (straps from an old dance costume)
-queen sized pantyhose (from walmart)
-a skinny feather boa (from a craftstore)
-black electrical tape (I'm sure any strong tape would do)
-some needle and thread (when don't you need this?)

They weren't too hard to make and their translucence makes them sort of faerie like...(But they're not nearly as cool as sugarbeth's!)

No more Sally the Ragdoll for me, this year I'm going to be a little bat! Not as sexy as your succubus, perhaps, but I think it will be cute.
