I'm so glad I was able to con her into helping me with this. LOL From the mess shall arise the beehive costume.
This is the front, its beeswax, tissue paper and chicken wire. It needs more layers and shaping so it looks like honey cells. I told myself I would just whip it out, yea right, it's going to take hours. I didnt' get out today although there were things I should have done, people who required and requested my presence, but I have a job and it's art, sometimes it requires that I hole up in my studio in my home and create. I could have a boring job selling cars or stocks.
Your ideas and comments are muchly appreciated.
