I finally got to wear the costume I had planned to wear at Sandy Camp. Things were crazy on movie night and I just did not get around to putting it on. I dressed as Flo from Progressive insurance who had been run over by a car. So I have tire tracks up the middle of my body. So I answered the door for all the Trick or Treaters this Halloween. I love seeing all the little kids in their costumes. It was fun being dressed up and seeing their reaction to me too. One boy said he wanted to come back and get insurance when he was old enough to have a car… I hope everybody had a safe and fun Halloween. -K

I offered to help my cousin and her husband with their Halloween costumes if need be. They took me up on my offer a couple of weeks ago. Mostly, it was her husband. He loves to have costumes that are more original. A few years back he was Jack in the Box, big round head an’ all. They had a lot of fun visiting all the local fast food places on Halloween. People thought it was funny to see that Jack eating at Burger King and Wendy’s. They said one employee at Jack in the Box walked past him saying “Hi boss.”. Kids really got a kick out of it!
Fast forward to this year.
My cousin’s husband is a doctor, a podiatrist.
I had no idea of what he had in mind, maybe a little sewing? …no?
He brought me a picture of them posing with a guy dressed as the Lamisil Digger! Um, yeah, the toe fungus guy.
I love a challenge, I think.
This is the papier-mache head almost done. I’ve done lots of pinatas in the past. It felt like doing another giant one! I know, I should have taken more pictures along the way.
They both came over yesterday and helped me finish him up.
For the rest of the outfit I sewed sweatpants, a sweatshirt and a tail, all with spots glued on the back. He bought some creepy feet and gloves to wear too.
I love this. So do they. He’s already talking about the next costume!
I’m going to miss this big orange head taking up all that room on my dining table.
We survived another year at Sandy Camp. We had lots of laughs and late nights. My Bug Demo went well. Everybody seemed to enjoy it. Several attendees through the weekend tried their hand at making bugs. I made more bugs while I was there and gave the other artist that did demos their choice of my bugs as a thank you for their time and effort along with a card. They liked picking a bug out of the collection. I really enjoyed the different variations that people came up with of making the legs and antenna. It was fun! We had lots of crazy Halloween costumes at our Friday night Trick and Greet movie night. The room was filled with people enjoying candy and lots of popcorn and the movie “Young Frankenstein”. Now we need to recover for next year…
Tina and I have a friend who moved away to Kansas City. Irene does Wacky art that makes you smile. She is having an event next Saturday for any of you who may be in the KC area. You must check out the things she has been doing with her art. She is a fabulous photographer. I love her cute animals and other wacky creatures she makes. You can check out Irene Niehorster on facebook. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Wacky-Ink-Studios/173639582652229
These kinda bother me. They came out great, which may be the problem.
I wanted to make these or at least see if I could. Naturally, I needed to do research. Yum.
I did them the same size and close to the same color. After putting a glossy coat on them I had to be extra careful with my “research” supply. I was getting them mixed up… I go see the dentist next week. – T
Ok, maybe they don’t. I punched these little stars out of polymer clay with a Kemper Cutter. The Clay Factory carries them. They are reasonably priced too. You could collect them all, because you know you will need the one you skip over if you don’t! I did.
It was fun doing all these colors. They remind me of the ball pit that little kids jump in. Except these would probably poke your eye out… not good.
One more mini down, what will be next? – T
Well I just can’t seem to get going here…. Did you all have a great 4th Of July? I sure hope so. I cannot believe it is July! Where did the first half of the year go?
Well I think that I have procrasted long enough. I signed up to take part in an Inchie Swap with the San Diego Polymer Clay Guild for July. Since I thought I could really do something neat with the “Inchies” that I received I decided to make 2 sets. That means I get to make 48 “Inchies”. Just in case you don’t know what an Inchie is–it is a 1″ x1″ piece of polymer that can be made using texture or technique I wish to use. I may do a cane so all I have to do is slice it, or I could do and extrusion and make it into a 1″ square that could be sliced. I guess I will have to go get busy and see what happens. Several other artist have mentioned not picking a technique that would need lots of sanding and buffing in the end. I for sure will not do that. One group had a color theme. That would have been a good idea. Maybe next time. So I am off to my workspace to create something. Anything is better than what I have been making lately… zippo.. I will keep you posted. –K
