Mad Hatter

'Tis the first day of Spring, and wonderland beckons -post steampunk, and into electronic-punk?  Or cyber-punk?

Bobble-head seems a bit of a greaser.   What does Alice think about him?
Nope, neither look very impressed with each other.
Hatters went mad from poisoning, but this one should have had a long and productive life ahead of him:
But it's time to put some colour to him.  He has retained his lead-free status, but  zombifaction attacked.  His crepuscular disease has erupted out of a jar of Andy Skinner's lava paste.

It's even worse on his back, and it looks like he also had Alice's bug growing under his necktie.:
All in all, he suffered in life, and resurrection has been no kinder to him. Wonder what his wig was made from.... it and his hat seem to have survived best.

May the rest of us live long and prosper!
Meantime, we're still providing a forum for you to post your dark, weird creArtions.  WITH the incentive (?) of a prize every 20 entries.  Look right.

Alice to the power of 2

In the previous post, I introduced you to a Zombie Alice.  Since then, she has tried the Magic Potion.
Through the wonders of modern technology, we can show how she was and is now:

Definitely shrunk, more zombied than ever, and no longer able to stand unsupported.

Frankly, I'm surprised Lewis Caroll could keep writing past this point!

We are still playing no the dark side, are you?  Share your dark or weird creArtions on the right - Evil Froggie has bribes rewards after each 20 entries...

Alice? Alice? Who the *** is Alice

There's a corrupted version of the song, so beloved of drunken parties (assuming you're old enough, if not,  )
I'm still slowly working through Michael deMeng's on-line class making Alice characters and a Wonderland Theatre.  The Card Guards have already put in an appearance here.  I spent a happy Easter weekend with a friend raiding my Shed, and making Alices together.  Found some nodding figures, one of which got cannibalised for Alice so she can keep on nodding in agreement with the Red Queen - it's a Safety Feature :)
Somehow, she turned into a Zombie Alice.  Here she is, before she found the "Drink Me" potion:
Doesn't it look like she's also in a straitjacket???  Another of Asylum Anne's "therapies" makes use of yarn on a cone, so Alice's skirt is part of a cone.
Wonderful stitching to hold her brains in!  More therapy put to good use haha.

 But perhaps we should worry about what's hatching out the back of her spine?
Come back later this month to see how she looks after drinking "that" potion!

Meantime, Asylum Anne is worried about her teamies... not a peep out of them for too long.  Have the wintry snowy blasts she is getting spread as far as Finland, and even California???  Are they snowed in with their snow tyres stuck in storage thinking it's summer?  what a wonderland we live in.

Look right, to see why Evil Froggy is gasping... for... just... one... more... entry in our challenge, so he can slip something special in the mail for you! 
Update: and all of a sudden you've had enough aircon for your brain to start creArting, and we're WELL past the number of entries for the next giveaway.

When rubber balloons haven't been invented...

In Jane Austen's day, there were no balloons, so what could one fly?  Plenty of skulls around... so let's take our protest of over a week of frosts to the skies with one - we're freezing to death after all!
All stamps are from Blank Page Muse.  I sprinkled embossing powders over Andy Skinner's Lava Paste for both the clouds (Peppered chantilly enamel) and frosts (Fractured Ice)  for some subtle colouring, before heating it up.  And because it's such a colourful "balloon, here's what it looks like in rubber:

We are sooo close to rewarding one of you with some goodies - 2 more dark and weird show'n tell on the column to the right......>

Altered playing cards

I found a deck of playing cards that
are the size of ATC cards.
Had to get the deck - of course.

And then I swap one of my ATC's 
and got these fabulous stickers
with the brilliant ATC card.

Just knew I need to make a mess, :)

This is my fav card out of 4 I made

My daughter liked this one.

Here are all four

Let us see what you have been making this summer!
Looks like froggy there----->
needs just few more links and these
goodies are of to someone among entries 21-40.
