Great Odin's Raven!

So I never posted some of the more hands-on painting I did this summer, and a friend told me I should. So here goes!

A few years ago, my brother Josh bought me a Munny Doll. It's made of vinyl and exists only to be painted or drawn on. They all come with random accessories. I actually made it a Season 2 Priest set initially, and I took pictures of it somewhere before scraping the crappy paint (I think I used a really, REALLY thick coat of watercolors, lawl) off and starting over. I finally made a decision for it's final form last Spring - The [Alien] Norse God of Thunder! He came with a cape in his accessories, and I still have to make him a helmet. Amanda's Midna is much more supreme than mine, but the little guy does his best.

In August, Maine Boffer Games happened. It was fun, it was epic, and it was full of lots of fabric paint! My first project was the battle standard for the all-girl fighters, the Amazons. Julie totally rocked the green wife beater and the brown shorts like she meant business! She sewed several headbands for us girls to ear that eventually sported one animal on each. She also sewed herself some sweet leg guards, the wrist guards, and the standard itself. My job was coming up with a design and painting the mother effer on there.

Next, Julie wanted to make the hubby Ryan a special tabard and headband. I was happy to see him rock it all weekend! :D

Lastly, I made the tabard for the winner of the final boff competition. This one had a lot of screw ups, but I also learned that throwing random dots all over the place makes a tabard look much more detailed than it really is...for the win. The lions are the worst Champion lions I ever did see though.
I already can't wait for the next Games-- it was one of
the best weekends of the Summer. Except for the part where my boyfriend at the time was super sick and appeared deathly ill for three days. That was worse than the crappy lions.
