Sometimes, past me is a dip. To be fair, I didn’t have a cell phone then, just a regular digital camera that I actually had to remember.
See, in 2012 I threw a letterboxing party at the clubhouse of our apartments. It was called Dark Carnival, and I had a blast making utter crap “attractions” for it. But did I take pictures? Well, I have a few of the carnival itself, but almost nothing of my actual things I made. But here’s what we’ve got.
This is just the basecoat. I remembered these because of the last post, because when B saw these, he yelled “WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?” Again, I had won. A friend made a bunch of clown outfits, and this is the best photo (cropped to remove children who are probably adults now) I have of the result.
They were popular, and people took them home at the end of the night.
I also made a clown that was painted in chromadepth, a 3D effect you’ve probably seen in haunted houses. I called him Meano. I put him in a box with a blacklight, and people donned the glasses and looked in. Probably to be underwhelmed. I kept Meano for a long time, but finally dumped him a few years ago. And I never took a proper photo. All I have is the drawing:
I made a very cool shadow toy that was broken immediately, and this thing. I don’t even remember what it did. It’s made out of very special “craft cylinders.”
We mock people for taking pictures of their lunch, but I say, snap away! You never know what you’ll miss later.
