This really has nothing to do with knitting, with the possible exception that it's posted on my personal blog, which also deals with my knitting projects and thoughts... lol.
SO- as some may know, when I'm not creating hats, I'm creating characters. I'm studying Musical Theatre at Montclair State University, with my focus being on acting/character study as well as voice. Basically what that statement boils down to is that I'm a lousy dancer... learn how to market yourself, I say.
As part of my curriculum, I'm taking stage makeup, which is also a HUGE hobby of mine. I've always loved theatrical makeup, especially prosthetics and special effects makeup. So when my teacher told us we'd be starting by making masks, I immediately knew I'd have a lot of fun with this project. Our masks had to be based on either Ariel or Caliban from William Shakespeare's "The Tempest"... and I of course chose the hideous Caliban. Birds of a feather... (Kidding).
I've posted about the process so far on my blog, and I thought some of you might be interested to see some of the pictures/read about the process. Hope some of you will enjoy =)
