One of my most dearly remembered live events was going to see the Blue Man Group.

It was more than a show... it was an experience. I had felt such a connection between the performers & the audience. I highly recommend anyone to go check out their show & see it for themself.

Never heard of the Blue Man Group? From wikipedia: Blue Man Group is an award-winning global entertainment company formed in 1991, and best known for its creative stage productions around the world.






A lot of work went into this piece behind the scenes. Wink
I cast one of my original altered artworks in a huge resin heart with glitter, glitter stars, & pigments...but that was the easy part.
The artwork was created first my altering GI Joe Dolls I had purchased at a thrift store. I knew they'd make great Blue Men because I wouldn't have to shave their heads. Cheesy
I painted them blue, and sewed little black outfits for them & then posed them for the photograph. The photograph is digitally layered with other photos I took of glitter & lite bright pegs with the camera out of focus & with a bokeh lens attachment. I upped the saturation to make it super colorful & love how it turned out! I think it captures the feeling I had when seeing the Blue Man Group.

I'm so glad that Craftster has continued to have craft challenges like this that motivates me to create things that otherwise I wouldn't have made time or had the motivation to do.
The next time I see The Blue Man Group...and I would see them again in a heartbeat, I'll definitely be wearing this necklace! Smiley

This is awesome!  It's so colorful.  It really captures the feeling of a live event.  And how fun to have 3 little Blue Men to pose around your house as well.  Grin

The 3 of them are up to mischief... much like our Elf on the shelf. Cheesy

I would never have guessed that so much work went into making this piece, especially into making the artwork.
The necklace includes many of your talents, with an amazing end result.
Great job!

Thank you BeaG! Your sweet compliments mean a lot to me! Even though it was a lot of work, it was a lot of fun...so it didn't feel like work. Smiley

This is amazing! I think, when you win those Ticketmaster tickets and go see Blue Man again, you need to bring an extra 50 of these necklaces along with you, because so many fans will try to buy it from around your neck!
