My mom was a master of homemade Halloween costumes when we were growing up — whatever I wanted to be, I was, from a dalmation with handpainted spots to a unicorn with bells in my mane (!). Also pictured: Bunnicula, Little Miss Muffet, and a Puppy. I might have to enlist her help with my long awaited sloth costume this year.
I made this bunny out a sock.
I like him a lot but I want to make about 50 more and then sell them on etsy alongside my prints and vintage stuff. This has to happen really soon so I want everyone who talks to me or sees me on a regular basis to bug me about it.
I also want to relearn about shrinky dinks because I think I can use them to make tiny plastic versions of a series of drawings I did of different animals wearing unicorn horns, and then turn those plastic animals wearing unicorn horns into necklaces and rings. Which is the kind of thing that if I was at a store where that existed I would FREAK OUT and purchase it immediately, which might be a good sign.
Actually, now that I am writing this I am starting to think I need to sew unicorn horns (removable, with pretty ribbons) to attach to all my bunnies.
Everyone wants to be something else sometimes.
Yay! Austin’s terrible attempt at modern art on Lamar Blvd. has been made really, really, really beautiful all of the sudden, thanks to knitting artist Magda Sayeg. I am so happy I don’t have to look at those stupid blue reflective panels anymore, and the new bursts of color are like happy little exclamation points.
more wants. indiefixx.com is evil.
