HDH 176 - Who Are You?

Another challenge for Macabre Monday at Haunted Design House this week the challenge is to create a dark, Gothic, or Hallowe'en 
based art piece that depicts a costume or
character you have been, or want to be for Hallowe'en.  

Isn't there that one costume you always remember
fondly from your childhood? Or maybe that one character 
you've always wished you had the guts 
(or the money, or the body)
to portray at this year's costume party?
We are being sponsored by I Brake for Stamps with the fabulous images from Rick St Dennis.

I always loved vampires and wanted to be one when I was a kid (yes always been a strange one me!).  Anyway I made a bag to carry my vampire costume accessories in.  I made the bag from an old cornflake packet. 

In case you come from Mars and didn't know what a cornflake packet looked like :P

I then pasted tissue paper on with a mix of PVA and water.
After that I painted it black then dry brushed some gold buff n rub stuff.  I then added my embellishments and image.  I added some 3D glaze to the image to protect it.  To the die I used the Jewel Stampendous red one.
I got a cheap plastic bat and added rub n buff to that and some liquid pearls and stickles to the belly.
I also added one of Glo's skulls from her etsy shop and added them to a charm that I got from Crafty Individuals shop.
Then the bag:

Well that's all folks. Be sure to check out the Minions.
