So, as a quick refresher ... the mannequin jewelry stand from the previous page ... and I was hoping that this would be a hit with my niece Ava ...who had her 8th birthday today!
Being an inquisitive kid, she wanted a quick step-by-step on how it's made ...
And here she's enjoying her little sister's reaction when I told them that I used a tiny chainsaw to remove Barbie's head and arms!
Little Sis (Rory) thought that was a bit much, so I'm rethinking the one for her upcoming birthday ... maybe a mermaid with a sandcastle with jewelry hooks on the towers ... or a fairy with the hooks made into the wings ... and the arms and head in tact on either! (Any ideas/suggestions there are welcome!)
And a celebrity siting! Felix Hanemann, bass & keyboard player for the rock group Zebra, entertains the crowd! Felix is my Mom's "baby" brother and came to town for my parents' 50th Anniversary, which we celebrated last night ...
Great weekend! And now it's back to work on some bidniss-related train stuff ... and hopefully some more work on the On30 diorama fairly soon. Thanks for checking in! We'll get back to the kitchen, so we can make some sammiches to get ole Mudgeon back to the shop one of these days!

The heads could possibly be used to display wigs or perhaps to showcase hair styles or in a Milliners to display new ladies head wear?
Just an idle thought.

I'm betting we will see some heads on EBAY soon someone will want them. Tom

I guess that barbie will never get ahead in life.

What??? No chainsaw?? I'll give you a "G" rating for "Groovy".

Very clever, Dallas. Your nieces will love them.
||Posted - 05/29/2013 : 09:27:23 AM
I think the girls will love them.
You might have a new product line.

I'm think MR Mudgeon has way to much time on his hands.
Very interesting jewelry holders, I'm sure your nieces will love them.

I'm staying completely away from this one Dallas
||Posted - 05/28/2013 : 5:34:02 PM
Dallas, or should I now call you Dollas?
So I'm afraid to ask what you have planned for the heads.
I'm certain your nieces will LOVE them!

You never fail to make me smile. Very creative if a bit alien.
||Posted - 05/28/2013 : 4:34:49 PM

but im sure your nieces will love it

A fine surprise, Dallas. Great!

ADVISORY: The following is way off-topic ... and will start off seeming like it's going to go wildly inappropriate, but we'll try to bring it around pretty quickly!
I suppose he's right, maybe we'd better explain a bit! Both of my nieces have birthdays coming up soon ... saw some neat little mannequin style jewelry stands in a boutique shop, and when I asked about buying a couple found out they were for display only ...
So I got some Barbie dolls and some fancy outfits ... some beads and a wooden base at Michaels ... some Plastruct coated wire ... and some soft wire ... some Model Master Magnesium spray paint ...
Hard to see here, but there are a couple little posts on the base for placing rings ... and I'll have to get an assortment of bracelets and necklaces to hang on the little hooks.
Hopefully, the girls will think they're cool! (It's always tough for an Uncle to know these things, so I went shopping with my Mom and she thought the ones in the store were cool ... and liked the idea of custom-made gifts ... still, you never know what the kids are gonna like ...)
PS -- Sorry if I've shocked or disturbed anybody, but it did feel awful weird cutting up a Barbie doll ... quite out of my norm ... and it's been a while since we've dragged out Mr. Mudgeon for a wacky adventure, so ... um, this is how I'm coping with the weirdness. Hope y'all can recover from it!
PS #2 -- Currently working on an On30 diorama and some new On30 "business" items ... will return to the cafe when those projects settle down a bit.
PS #3 -- Wish I had time to mess around with more sculptural projects ... fun stuff after you get over the Frankenstein aspect.
