One year ago: The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1923) & The Mummy (1932)
Any of you who frequent comic shops or craft stores have probably seen blank vinyl decorations such as these. We ran across these at the craft store Michael's, and naturally, I had to have a few! These were obviously designed with creating monsters in mind, and they're also much cheaper than the more generic blank vinyl figures. I have before & after photos of all except the ones based on the vampire body; I had already started drawing on those before it occurred to me to take photos of them in their natural, blank state.
This one was clearly intended to be a vampire, so naturally, my contrary ass had to go in another direction and make it a demon chick instead. She's loosely based on DesDEMONa(get it?), an original character of mine. The idea of one of these cutesy little figures having a lace-up corset, thigh-high boots, and fishnets just cracks me up. Maybe that says something about my state of mind...
Last but certainly not least, we have Dracula. My girlfriend made him a cape, since I'm utterly useless when it comes to working with fabric(yes, even something as simple as cutting out a cape; I can't seem to keep it even and symmetrical). I simply forgot to put it on him for the photo. It didn't even occur to me to deviate from the Lugosi model, but it would be a fun exercise to do another version of Dracula at some point, assuming I can get my hands on another of these.
That's it for today! Everyone have a great weekend, and Cthulhu bless.
