(Character Based) Reference: [link] Yeah I know.. the reference is tiny. Since I wanted to make a more human based interpretation with this, I felt that I reference image wasn't exactly 100% necessary.
I was refered to this contest by
This is based off of the mythological bird of fire/rebirth, Phoenix. I made this costume basically out of 2 bought patterns(corset and base skirt), I altered them as shown with hand sewn bead designs, ruffles, feathers(all feathers on the skirt were hand dyed), and sequins. The corset is fully boned with a busk, the beaded design took about 5 hours to complete. I made the wings from plastic canvas, clear nylon straps, and lots of feathers. The wig was cut, dyed, styled, detailed with strands of beads, and finished off with a feathery headdress(also handmade). The feathery bodice was constructed out of plastic canvas covered with feathers, and hand stung beads. I made feather tails to attach to my wrists, wig, and wings to complete the costume. The only thing that I did not make for this costume were the shoes.

Digital mixed media category
This is a mix of a Poser render (character, hair, top, kasa, jewels, circle prop) and Photoshop with some photo manip for the bottom of the dress)
This is the first image in my gallery. I saw this contest announced in a friend's gallery to raise awereness for breast cancer and celebrate JunkbyJen's 7th anniversary, cancer free, this October. I jumped at the opportunity to finally post in my gallery here, as I am very close to this cause, having been through it myself just very recently. I wanted to do something special to raise awereness and also celebrate being a survivor myself, as I was lucky to have caught it early, still intact with two little scars

Yet another fear from my childhood... this one was my mothers fault... she used to tell me this story about a man who was killed by his wife(great story for a 4 year old i know...but i digress) anyway the man is poisoned over a period of a few weeks... and when he dies the wife burys him in the basement... a few nights go by... and the woman starts to hear banging like someone stomping up the stairs... she ignores it... the next night... and the next...then the stomping is fallowed by a voice "im on the first stair" stomp "im on the second stair" stomp "im on the third stair" stomp
at this point the woman grabs a knife thinking her husband wasnt really dead... she runs to the basement door... throws it open and no one is there... she turns thinking she's just imagining things... and turns smack into her dead and rotting husband... who shrieks i'm right here and throws her down the stairs to her death!!!
needless to say i was terrifyed of the basement after that!!!
When I was little, I always feared that whatever was in the darkness would surround my bed and my bed would protect me for only so long... And seeing a bunch of hands come out to grab me would just freak me out. But something more chilling is not knowing what's there while you're sleeping peacefully, eyes closed, waiting for when you finally open them.
This is my submission for the MAMA Scared Stiff Contest.
Created using acrylics on 100 lb paper/ card stock.
I have had this idea for a long while and this contest motivated me to finally do it. The boy is not me, but this is what I envisioned for my depiction of childhood "monsters". Got a lot of inspiration from a variety of things and it was really fun to do.
Have you ever heard of Władysław and Irena Starewicz (aka Ladislas and Irene Starevitch)? Their stop-motion animated movies totally inspired me to make this doll! Seriously, puppets used in the animations (made by the Starevitches, of course) are pretty awesome and inspiring, go and check them out!
So here it is, my contest entry and also a little tribute to the great and almost forgotten animators ^^
This little guy was quite difficult to make! I used: ● Super Sculpey, acrylic paints and faux wool (for head, legs and hands) ● polar fleece and polyester filling (for belly, arms and thighs) ● plastic pipe (for sort of spine) But I'm really satisfied with how he came out
