Description

Two things that I LOVE.
Halloween & Dinosaurs.

So happy that I finally married the two this year.
I wanted to be a “chic” Dinosaur My boyfriend went as Dr. Alan Grant from Jurassic Park

Bodysuit:
Cotton blend stretch fabric I got this summer.
I sprayed the top portion with “Make It Stone” spray paint
The paint made the top a little stiff (naturally) so I added a little zipper in the back.
I wanted the fabric to feel like Dinosaur skin.

The shoulders are just shoulder pads that I sprayed with the same “Make It Stone” Spray paint.

Horns:
feather weight clay that I shaped over aluminum foil. sanded when they dried and brushed fabric dye over

Head:
I cut triangles from black card stock and wrapped them around a headband. I sprayed the bottom with the same spray paint.

Hands:
Feather weight clay. I wanted them to look like scales but they ended up looking like rocks. I used the fame fabric dye on them.
My “claws” are Halloween witch fingers. I cut the nails off and painted.

Necklace:
Feather weight clay. Spray painted
