Really nice work! The shape and proportion of that headdress is really nice. What are you using for the metal texturing there?

Thanks! I used a gold leaf paint on the base, and covered it with a really neat gold fabric and the two combined gave the effect I was going for. Smile

Hi! I am just starting to attempt this beautiful piece of art work. Does anyone have any idea what to use for the lanterns (the shells?).

I just got lucky around Easter time and found clear "egg" shapes, after almost giving up. Before that I was looking for someone with a vaccuform machine and do it that way ....just depends on resources. Smile

wow! I was only out for a week and I find a complete Red Invasion!

Great Job!!! Amadalia

The gold embroidery looks amazing, did you do it manually or using a machine?

The wig has the correct shape, I like that.

Thanks! Alas, it is not for me. I made it for a very nice family from Australia. They are going on a Disney Cruise for Halloween.

I think its time for me to make an outfit for me, but I haven't decided which one yet. lol

@ Furiafelina. I am blessed with an embroidery machine. I digitized the design from the picture in "Dressing a Galaxy" and used Metallic thread. Took FOREVER!!! lol
