So, by now you’ve probably figured out that shenanigans factor prominently in my lifestyle. What can I say? I demand a high level of stimulation from the world. The latest bit was our Halloween party last Friday. I acquired this styrofoam head from a vegan friend of ours with the intention of using it as a meat delivery device. I like the irony of that, although the donor may not. Sorry! I think it looks awesome for a first attempt though. The eyes are made of a radish which I cut in half, shaved a bit of the skin off for this lovely bloodshot effect, cut holes in which I inserted olives to be the iris/pupil. The Meat Head idea is shamelessly taken from Makezine’s Halloween issue from a few years ago (what? it’s there for me to copy!) and the eye-dea I got from the great one’s (that would be Martha Stewart to you) Halloween book, although hers were frozen in ice cubes for libations.
I was also trying to get all fancy with the cheese there. I clearly need a better understanding of cheese sculpting to make my next chili powder covered organ look more realistic. Still, not a bad shape in all. There is that aortically shaped protuberance there, although it is probably in the wrong place. What? I never had to take anatomy, and I sort of molded it on a whim anyway.
Unfortunately I don’t feel I can post more pictures of the actual shenanigans since I did not get everyone’s consent. I wish I got a picture of the punchbowl with the lovely dry ice fog, but alas, it was not to be. Next year perhaps.
