Blog. Did you ever have to build a diorama for a school project?


In 5th grade we had to enter the Science Fair and my project was the Solar System. You know, back when Pluto was a planet.Those were the days, but I digress. Ever since then I have been fascinated with dioramas. This year's Christmas gifts (pudgy post) Last year for Christmas, I made Gir, a Triforce pillow, scarf and hat set for my mom, hats for my boyfriends nieces and nephew, and a penguin and dragon for my cousins.

This year's Christmas gifts (pudgy post)

This year, I held back from making so much because I've been having problems with my wrist. Here's this years haul: The crowning glory of this year's gifts- the Cthulhu ski mask.

The mask and the claws were sculpted out of claw, molded in silicone, and finally cast in resin. It was just my second time working with those materials, so there were some bumps along the way! A lot of sanding, dremelling and hot-glue-gunning action were going on! The mask and claws were spray painted, with details added in acrylics. The fur suit was based on Simplicity pattern 2853 with some modifications. Now for some progress and completed photos! Setting up my armature (using a lifecast of my head from a past Hallowe'en costume project). Finished sculpting the head. I brushed on silicone to make a mold of the sculpted head, and once that dried, I made a mothermold out of ultra cal (to keep the silicone in place when you pour resin into it). .

And the finished mask! Claws were made just like the mask! The claws were glued to the tops of the fingers. Do you believe in time travel?

Of course, the first thing he noticed was the number of keys: wrong, I-just-don't-want-to-know-how-many-keys-I-sewed vs 88. Detail of the keys of doom - they took forever! Aaaaand surprise!! Can you see it?! ). Two more pictures just because I love it: Hope you like it, thanks for looking! Crafty Chic: Pillowcases.
