greetings! i'm back with another edition of "building dr. killinger.
this time around i'm focusing on the magic murder bag.
here it is in the cartoon:
but first of all i wanted to show you the finished mask. to cover the eye sockets and still be able to see (in the cartoon they are a soft yellow... like they glow) i used a very sheer white fabric from my stash that i colored with a yellow marker (because if i used paint it would clog the holes and reduce visibility and dye won't really take on this polyester- besides, it's such a small piece why dye?)
and here is the final mask after varnishing and gluing the fabric in the eye sockets..
and here's an action shot.... i didn't realize just how creepy it would turn out after i covered the eyeholes.... it looks like i don't have eyes!
ok, as promised the magic murder bag.... this one didn't require much after i tracked down the right bag. that took some doing as i wasn't about to pay for a *real* vintage leather doctor bag especially since i'd have to paint it :/ so i found this amazing vintage bag on etsy for under $30 including shipping!
as you can see there's not a whole lot i'd have to do...
here is the final bag. i blackened the stitching, painted near the zipper to elude to the metal clasps in the original, and added the killinger logo. because i really can't use a stencil to save my life i cut the logo out of some pleather i painted to match the rest of the bag (and all the accessories)
here you can see the 'clasp' better
and i leave you with a glimpse of what we will see next time.... it's almost done!!!!!
thanks so much for looking!
