I haven't even told you about the Masquerade Faerie's Ball. I went to the Good Faeries night. When we first walked up to the McDonald Theater, we saw a tree man. He was obviously on stilts. I hear its hard to walk and move slowly on stilts. He was amazing!! He looked like a real tree just walked of the mossy Forrest to come and enjoy the fun at the ball. He had a mask on his whole face, his nose was a little brancy knot. Trillian Green was great!(they are so magically good) and Woodland, was is awesome too. I had a great time. I left my camera home so I didn't have to carry things around. I wish I had brought it though, so many beautifully dressed faeries and elves.

Earlier on that day I had the erge to make a mask to wear, I didn't have any. So I decided to make some out of a leather Shammy. You know the kind you buy at the store in the Automotive section, to polish your car with. I bought one, it was about a 12 inches by 12 inches and only $8.oo

Next I drew on a piece of paper my ideas. Then when I had the design I wanted I drew it onto the leather. I cut it out with my scissors. (its pretty thin) I then got out a bowl and poured equal parts of Liquid Starch(you can get in the laundry section of most grocery stores) and Wood glue or you could use Elmer's glue. I let it soak in for about 20-30 min. Then I took out the masks and got the excess mixture off and gave them a little squeeze.

I then put them on to my manikin heads and formed them a little. I then let them dry. I would of let them dry in there own time. Instead I turned on the blow dryer. Much faster.

Then I punched holes in the sides (where I could tie the elastic onto)
I got out my acrylic paints and started painting them. I used the blow dryer again to help them along to dry. Then they were done and ready to wear. I was surprised on how well they turned out.

Here's a picture of all three that I made:
