Yesterday, Tejae suggested that we have a Halloween Mask Party here on our blog. Now, I must admit I don’t know exactly what she meant by that, but it does sound intriguing. So much so, in fact, that I started my mask this morning while my onions were in the oven. I even decided to do some experimenting, which actually means that my mask may flop entirely and I’ll have to start over. But that’s another issue…
I think it would be the most fun if we don’t have any rules or anything. To make it easy, we can just have a series of guest posts, (with you as the authors and artists, of course), with Halloween masks as the theme. I know tons of people are looking for Halloween ideas right now, and you may have just the idea they’re looking for.
To submit your Halloween mask guest post, you can use this form to submit your images, thoughts, instructions, commentary, philosophy – whatever, as long as it’s vaguely related to the item you’re showcasing. Does that make it a “party?” Close enough, I say.
No deadline, this time – but remember that Halloween is coming up soon, and paper mache takes time to dry. If we don’t publish our posts and tutorials early enough, other readers won’t be able to use our ideas to create their own masks. No pressure, though — 😉
And by the way, I often hear from people who are reticent to post anything because they don’t write well enough, or English is a second language, or some other insecurity. Fortunately, we have a fabulously supportive community on this blog, and nobody cares if you spell something wrong. We just want to see what you’ve made lately, with paper mache.
