My favourite fall memory is about halloween. Specifically being out Trick or Treating always looking for that "perfect" house. One that's decorated great, gives out great candy, and is full of people all dressed up themselves! Every year my friends and I would try to get to more houses to look for that house. I always liked seeing into houses when people would open the door to give us candy. It was kind of like peeking into a secret life you weren't normally part of! Halloween is just that magical time where you get to dress up like something you're not and everyone goes out to celebrate on the streets together, which is quite different than any other kinds of holidays. So for this diorama I wanted to capture the fun and lightheartedness of being a kid on halloween, running around the neighbourhood, but also as I grow older I can still have a different kind of fun giving out candy to the kids that visit my house and have a costume party with friends! I guess it's one of those holidays that changes with you as you grow.
I made everything in this diorama by hand except for the bushes, which I purchased. The characters are ink and watercolour drawings. I made the box out of cardboard according to the dimensions since I did not have a shoebox I could use.
Recently saw this movie advertised, "Mama", and then later that night, DA hosts a contest for it.
Getting the chance to recreate a childhood fear?
For a Horror aficionado, this was certainly a lot of fun. Tested a lot of new skills I've learnt in the last few weeks as well as more painting practice.
This is based on a recurring nightmare from back when I was about 10. A zombie-like creature who had a Midas-like touch. Anything he could grasp in his finger would turn to worms. In the dream, he was eating me, and all I could do was sit there and scream as it devoured me. Listening to his loud munching groans.
Every time I'd dream about him, when I awoke, I wondered...
Will it ever go away?...
I became afraid to go to sleep for so long for fear that he'd be waiting for me again. And I would stare at the closet at the foot of my bed, constantly peaking and opening my eyes, trying to catch him so I could run... but there was no escape. Sometimes, he was even in the corner of my room beside the closet's door... just standing there, waiting to chase me... and consume me.
so this is my pumpkin i give this to all those crazy naruto fans it took about 2 hours o.o; and an hour carving the insides out........longer ebcause i have friends who wont stop talking XD (not that i would want that D: ) tool used: ......er a weird looking screw....and a knife....
