I went ahead and made those Skeleton Pillows for Cora's Goth room today. I'm not impressed with the quality of my sewing, but...as the saying goes...it will do for now.
I also pulled out some of her accessories...and spread them about the room to get a feel of where I was going with this. That silver birdcage in the background was a charm I found at Michael's.....The shoes, purse and speaker are from her Bratz stuff.....The Twilight book I made....And that little Hello Kitty doll on the night stand is what started this whole thing. I bought it for Cora a few weeks ago, and then she decided she wanted a room to match, lol! I will get a close up picture of her (the Hello Kitty doll) soon for you to see, She's really cute:) She was a cell phone charm that I took apart.
...So.....I was asked about my comfort zone with doing this kind of theme...and I have to say that I have my moments, when I enjoy the darker side of life, too. And actually when I started thinking about it.....the first Room Box, and the only room box, that I've ever completed is a little room box entitled Frankie's Place. I named it after a puppy Chris from Candid Canine made for me...and it's a Halloween Cafe. You can find the link to it here: http://katiesclaycorner.blogspot.com/2008/09/re-vamping-frankies-place.html
And ..With that being said.....I can indulge Cora into one of her fantasies for a little while. Maybe this will keep her from wanting to die her hair strange colors, or from piercing weird places on her body. Or maybe it will backfire and have her wanting more? Who knows, but for now.....we're having fun. :)
