As you have probably guessed from the last entry, this week's Thing I Made Thursday is my dead fairy gaff.

If you have not read the story, please go do so! In all its beautiful, digressive glory, it's as much a part of the thing as the shriveled organs and tattered wings!

First, thanks go to Jenna at Shadow Manor for the awesome dead fairy doom-it-yourself prop tutorial! Much of this came from there, and the rest came from reading about people customizing larger skeletons for Halloween. Googling stuff like Halloween, Bucky, skeleton, how-to, latex, etc., will get you to any number of really good tutorials. Make sure you put in "Bucky," BTW. That's just what everyone calls cheap skeleton reproductions. A Bucky.

Anyway.

I actually made this a little over a year ago, but it has proven damnably hard to photograph, and, too, I have only just received the final story from our favorite retrocognitive psychometrist detailing its origin. The weasel was VERY late. Ahem.

How she managed to avoid making a "handy shandy" joke is anyone's guess.

It took me about a week and a half of fiddling with it for a while every evening to do this. I tore everything up and started over after about three days, by the way. The wings were done over two evenings, since I let the transparencies dry overnight.

Let me tell you, he was a lot of work! I learned a lot making him, and expect my second effort will be much better.

If you want to see more of this gruesome little gaff, please click below the cut!

More pics! LOTS more pics, including info about the wings. )

Dear lord, this was a lot of work. *pant pant pant*

I hope you enjoyed! If you have other questions, I will try to answer them!
