Found another mannequin that needed some tlc. She looks very cool next to my other finished mannequin. Now I have to finish mannequin number 3. Her body is done, but she needs a new face.
Ok. I did it. She's more or less done.
If she doesn't sell as is I'll bring her with me and keep working on her.
I posted some before shots in an earlier post, but I'll do so again so you can compare.
(Though I must say that I don't think the photos do her justice.)
I spent the day in Verdun yesterday, looking at apartments. I met so many nice people!! But I have to admit that I felt a little out of place. I didn't meet a single artist, or see much that suggested art related activities in the area.
But it's close to the water and bike paths and a CIRCUS SCHOOL (!?!) and the rent is cheap. What's a girl to do?
I'm considering starting over from square one and researching other areas. (Villeray and Rosemont for example.)
I have to admit I still have that typical romantic notion of living in a loft too. Not one of those luxury poser lofts, but a rough space that I can turn into WONDERLAND!!!
But seriously, a large living space that can be used commercially as well and that can evolve as our lives and interests change... Wouldn't that be perfect?
Anyone have any suggestions?
Besides apartment hunting I've been getting excited about a new project. An ex-boyfriend of mine gave me a mannequin in rough condition and I'd like to do something interesting with her.
I'm not sure whether she'll display my clothing and hats or whether she'll be a work of art that I'll sell. Hmmm...
I should have taken photos of her before I filled in the holes in her face, but, oh well... Guess I was too eager to get started.
I have to admit, though, that she looks kinda cool as is. And I think it's pretty awesome that she has "no guts no glory" written on her thigh. But the staples, (however cool they look) will no doubt snag on, and possibly tear, any clothing she might display, and we can't have that! Otherwise what purpose does she have in life, huh?
Here she is at this stage. More photos to come as the work progresses...
