Hunger Games make-up contest

Model/Make up artist - Tess Laeh

Photographer/Hair/Wardrobe - Cassandra Melena

Not sure if anyone else was bitten by the Hunger Games bug, but I sure was! I read the whole series in a week, couldn’t put it down for the life of me. Needless to say, when I saw that not only there was a Capitol Couture website, but also a make up contest I had to go for it! So here it is, District 12, the girl in love ♥

Sculpture - Monster bird bust I sculpted, molded, and painted this guy and it took an entire semester to complete, but I’m really happy with the end result.  Made out of poly-foam, he stands over two feet tall and will happily eat your soul if you backtalk. Bird Creature By Cassandra Melena Eye painted by - Will Ritter


I’m sculpting some ram horns to sell as head pieces on my Creatures Grimm Etsy shop. Once these bad boys are done I will soon mold and paint them.  I may end up leaving some blank so people can paint them to whatever color they choose.  In a few weeks, the Etsy shop will be open for all to see. But for now, check us out on Facebook for updates on whats to come.

This is a fiberglass bird creature mask I made for an independent short film by Dorian Cleavenger called, "The Companion.“  After everything was finished, molded and fiberglassed, I had to adjust the "helmet” to fit more as a mask, so I cut the back half off, sanded down the edges and refit the mask on my head, it ended up working out well and gave me more room to breathe.
