Fallback Costume: Egon Spengler

So I didn't finish my Maleficent costume in time and had to rely on my fallback costume today. Here's a little shout out to @Ed Kim for busting up my nice proton pack; I actually made this pack this morning/ afternoon with supplies from around the house. Took me about two hours in total.

Dragon head sculpture

Here's the finished sculpt of my dragon head half-mask that I did in Jordu Shell's class this paste summer. After this we made a plaster mold and cast it in latex... the latex half-mask is currently sitting in my office closet waiting to get a little love, and paint.

Clearly, I must have been a graceful ballerina or the like in my former life, and am thus paying for it dearly in my current. I cut the tip of my finger off with sharp scissors on Sunday. Snip!
