I’m also currently working on a rhinestone bone headpiece. c; I’ve been wanting to do this for a couple weeks now, but couldn’t make time for it until I snuck it into a class project. :p
The project is to apply and shoot fantasy makeup on someone (my roommate, yay). I chose to do calavera makeup and am going to use this bone in her hair. :D
The bone is made of foil, model magic and paint. Almost 200 rhinestones later and I haven’t even covered the whole thing.. I couldn’t wait to take a photo so the glue is still white and not clear~
In case you were wondering why you haven’t received a package from me yet Melissa it’s because I keep having things I want to add to it… sorry haha..
I tried using balsa wood for the bat this time instead of paper (tutorial for the paper glitter bat here :D ). The paper actually turned out nicer I think~
The bat fabric is halloween fabric from Joann Fabrics that I couldn’t resist getting my last trip.
Also sorry this isn’t going to be a surprise for you Melissa… I get too excited to upload things, but also I wanted to prove I haven’t forgotten about you. ;p
I spent 6 hours in the costume shop today (a saturday) making a headband and necklace for an actress in the upcoming Cabaret musical at our theatre. I think I’m happy with how it turned out.. but it looks better on a person than it does on that creepy head mannequin. :p
Actually I took the class for fun, since I don’t technically need the hours.. but normally class is during the week but today was a special case.
Also, tomorrow I’m going to the Renegade Craft Fair in Chicago. :D Melissa and I didn’t get accepted for a booth this year, but next year we definitely will, haha.. Is anyone else going to visit tomorrow??
I can’t decide if this is an okay hairstyle or not. D: The other day Eva did my hair in a beautiful french braid wrap with the flower band woven through it.. after many attempts this was as close as I could get (not very close). I’ll upload Eva’s later with another post :]
Another photo from our shoot yesterday. :]
Bunny ears (tutorial here) and leggings made by me, photo by Eva.
I stole Eva’s crop top and necklace. And you wanna know a secret? I had to wear a push up bra under it. Some people have all the luck… ;p
are you ready for this?? ;p
I just finished making 12 bows and will be uploading them to etsy probably tomorrow :]
