The Cheshire Cat is finally.......alive!

This is one of the earliest projects I painted for our wedding (TEN DAYS LEFT, OMG!) and one of the last to get animated! I happened to find an unused wiper motor inside my coffin of supplies and figured I could finally animate the cat without spending a bunch! I sourced all the parts from within my supply cabinet/coffin and luckily the Frankenstein concoction payed off!

Still need to paint the edges and seal the entire thing, but for now I can sit back and admire my work! Not for too long.. Still have a bunch to finish! Feeling very much like Halloween right now! Haha!

My poor dog Dinah would bark and bark at the Cheshire, so much so that we had to hide it in the closet! She was barking because she thought it was alive! Now I finally gave her a reason to bark!

March of the Card Guards

Twenty two days left! Need to get everything done! Ahh! Card Guards are halfway painted... I painted the white using sprayable white lacquer and that ended up saving me time and a few mess ups were easily wiped away! Basically set up a huge assembly line and painted them all at once! Since my brush strokes are still not the best the paint markers come in really useful to get crisp lines! 

Already setup the Christmas tree too! Since we are going to be in Disneyland for ten or so days, I decided to bring out the tree early because we won't have time to do it once the wedding gets closer and only having the tree up for nine days once we get back would be a crime! Already spending the night on the couch with Veronica because she loves the lights!
