I think I'm on to Something (Work in Progress)
Also known as my favorite prop picture to date
While one of my faves- the Frog Queen has been rubbing elbows with Rob Zombie, I've been plugging away at my three sisters witches a-la Macbeth/Pumpkinrot. I finally have all three heads finished except two that got weather sealed need matting so they aren't shiny and one needs sealed,... the basic heads are done. I want matte finish skin with shiny lacquered eyes, eyelids, teeth, gums, and lips, think Alien style. These girls will be frothing at the lips in ecstasy while they try to raise the dead. Note: I don't plan to have any risen dead this year due to time constraints, my haunt story will follow soon.
After I got home from the morgue I tried a little "photo shoot" with the girls and an idea I am tossing around about hair. Pumpkinrot's witches are hairless (and ear-less as are mine), but I am a big hair girl. I like some of the photos I've found on the web with crazy ratty dreaded hairdos on the witches. I know of an interesting homeless woman in town who has crazy dreadlocks that hang all the way to the ground. She has all sorts of stuff in her hair, even duct tape. She carries herself around with such a regal presence. I think my witches need some "power hair" I'm thinking ratty, full of fuzz, with haphazard hairdos, and let the weather do the rest.
Anywhoo, I spent three hours unraveling a skein of yarn and tried out some shots to see where I'm going with the idea. I already have one pointed witches hat, but do all three get them? Should one have a hood? I'm looking for feedback I suppose.
