I don't think you need to find a scale shaped sponge - you should be able to just cut something to shape. There's probably videos on youtube.
My wife sent me this link too...might be some help...using a netting to do makeup. Maybe you watched this one already. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z7Zi9EMtlVE&feature=youtu.be
I'm surprised you haven't gotten more responses to your thread. So weird how some stuff gets a billion posts and the exact same thing can get none.
They're definitely playing some stuff up with Capaldi that's making him a little different. It's a bit superficial at the moment but I think it's heading in the right direction. But I think part of it is Moffat just messin' with us.
Not sure if the craft foam would be big enough or not. I think it would. Might be able to sandwich some pipe cleaners in between and glue or sew *cough*staple*cough the pieces together to hold the wire in place for the tail, if you want to get that detailed.
Anyway, I wish you luck - hope it all goes smoothly for you. :) And I hope your reaper made your day!
Hey, congratulations on the reaping! That's crazy exciting! Don't feel like you need to reply to this as I'm sure you'll be tied up with that all night.
Went to MIcheal's today with the missus. Took a photo of the craft foam. They had it in 9" x 12" pieces, with black available in a couple different thicknesses. They also had the sticky backed type and a sparkly version. (prices shown in the pic are Canadian so they'll be high for you.)
I'm guess you might make a little scale shaped sponge stamp for applying your makeup? I think that would work for texturing whatever material you use too.
Hey Sneakyone! No obligations here. Just have fun. I'm sure you'll fill me in as time allows. Most important thing is you enjoy the season.
Things are just OK here. The one big project I had planned for this year isn't going well so far. But maybe I'll turn it around.
(The craft foam I *think* you can get anywhere. Definitely Michael's. Possibly at your finer dollar stores. Pretty sure Michael's sells some in black with self-adhesive backing. Not sure how well the backing would hold up. I'm guessing you aren't a sewer?
I'm sure you'll figure it out. You got some serious smarts on you. (Doctor Who the last couple weeks has involved ghosts. But undersea in kind of a military base. Didn't really have that Halloween vibe.)
Heyyy! You in Fargo? You'll have to get a gang together and come visit my home haunt! Im on FB at 'Crypt at Jacobs Manor' open Friday and Saturday 7-11 last two weekends in October 307 Railroad Ave in Leonard, only cost of admission is anything non-perishable for the great Plains Food Bank~
Was that the Avengers Wizard of Oz reference reference? If so we may have mind melded.
"Disneyland Paris just once" DUDE! I'd love to go to Disneyland Paris - that would be an amazing trip! I keep forgetting you went there.
I don't think the original mansion was supposed to have much of a story at the start, right? I think Walt was actually against solid narrative, and then when he passed away they kind of pieced stuff together. I myself prefer have a bit of ambiguity to it, rather than a very clear storyline, but they seem to be clarifying things more and more with the addition of the attic, etc.
I bought a book by Rolly Crump who was an Imagineer on the Haunted Mansion, called something like "It's kind of a cute story" which talks a lot about how he got started and the kind of work he did (He's also got a selection of stories on iTunes - really short but the same kind of content.) It really sounded like he got started with not much experience mostly because he was in the right place in the right time and didn't have a ton of animation work on his plate - I think he was just an assistant to someone at the time. But it sounded like, back in the day anyway, it was as much a fluke as anything else getting an Imagineering job. So don't give up hope.
And look at X Atencio. He started out as an animator and he ended up writing the script for a few rides including Pirates of the Caribbean and Haunted Mansion. Not to mention Pirate' Life for Me and Grim Grinning Ghosts. Those are pretty huge contributions made by a writer.
You should follow Disney Jobs on twitter and maybe your dream job will pop up! (Always funny when I see them advertising for things like accountants.).
I hope you're right about the never too late stuff. Thinking I may need to find a new career path. Now I just gotta find some dreams.
I knew you'd get that reference.
Well, I say that. I dunno that I'm the right people though.
If I understand right, I think I have an earlier edition of that. Mine has a big section on the Eddie Murphy movie though, and I think they've yanked that out and updated the stuff on Disneyland, Disneyworld and added stuff about...is it Mystery Manor in Hong Kong? I was tempted to pick up the new version. Maybe I'll put it on my Christmas list. Hope you enjoy it - I really hope you get to see it in person soon too. And when you do I want a full report.
I just heard about Clara. That's sad-making. I quite liked her once she got settled in. And she made a nice foil for Capaldi. Wonder what they'll do for a new companion. I hear River is coming back for an episode - I wonder if they could make her a regular again (Maybe even take over as the Doctor for a bit.)
I might not be able to watch the new episode 'til Sunday though.
