Summer Mood Board as H+L Fics

Making this mood board fic inspiration was fun, so in honor of @hlsummerexchange2017, I made a Summer Mood Board as different types of fics:

Top Left: Famous/Famous AU
Harry has just bought his dream house after years of toiling away trying to make it as an actor. And, well, it would be his dream house if not for the minor detail of having to share a pool with the neighbor. The real estate agent assured him it wouldn’t be a problem, but the real estate agent didn’t mention that said neighbor happened to be Louis Tomlinson – Oscar-nominated actor and star of Harry’s more explicit dreams for most of his adult life. Harry tries to avoid the pool as much as he can, but Louis seems disinclined to do the same. Harry is forced to watch as his celebrity crush flaunts his body every day, laying around the pool in tiny swim trunks. When Harry finally works up the courage to go out there (how can he avoid it anymore? It’s a thousand degrees outside!), Louis smirks and says “I was wondering when you were going to stop watching and start joining me, Curly.” 

Top Middle: Farmer’s Market AU
Harry spends every Friday night meticulously hand crafting homemade popsicles – carrot ginger, raspberry tart, mint julep – in order to sell them on Saturday mornings at the local farmer’s market. Louis runs the stall next to him, and can’t help but mercilessly tease Harry every single time he sees them. Many arguments about ‘hipster bullshit’ erupt between them, until one day Louis shows up claiming he can do just as well as Harry, and begins to sell his own popsicles. Harry gets incredibly flustered, because he spends hours lovingly handcrafting homemade treats, and Louis is peddling Bomb Pops for a dollar a piece. This turns into a competition of who can sell the most mundane items to unsuspecting ‘hipster’ patrons, and they both can’t help but fall a little in love with each other.

Started working on a little art project. Trying to sand down and paint up one of these cheapo Jason hockey masks to look decent.

My initial idea was to do part 3, but the mask came flattened a bit and looks more like part 6. I could easily reshape it with my heat gun, but it’s almost 80 degrees and I don’t feel like making things hotter.

So part 6 it is. If this comes out decent enough, I might try and do every movie, maybe give some away on here around Halloween time. We’ll see!

It’s Finished Object Friday, sweet babies!

This is a Pygmy Puff from the pattern “Poof” by Michelle McLaughlin. It was crocheted on a 5.5mm (size I) hook with Lionbrand Homespun in the Mixed Berries colorway. His eyes are from yeahshop on Etsy. 

He gets his texture from using a dog brush on the crocheted fabric. I enlarged the pattern so that he’s bigger than my head. I knew he was a keeper when my boyfriend picked up the unstuffed shell and cuddled it without prompting. 

Hopefully this weekend is a good one for everybody. It’s the first day of Me Made May so I’ll probably post something about that later on.

Ok I finished the mask. Here’s my original post.

Spray painting is harder than it looks, especially when you’re an impatient jackass like me. I intended to turn a cheap, plastic Jason Halloween mask into a part 6 (originally part 3…but it came in a flat shape like 6 and it’s too damn hot to turn on the heat gun and reshape it) but I fucked up the paint job.

So I rolled with it, and made a grungy, gore soaked mask not based off of any particular film and that looks like it’s been floating at the bottom of Crystal Lake for a good couple years. Not totally happy with it, but practice makes perfect and I learned some do’s and don'ts.

Not bad for a 2 dollar piece of plastic.
