Zombie Silhouettes


When I saw this tutorial on Crafterhours for making your own silhouettes I had to make them. But I didn't have a projector.. until two days ago that is. I just had my 41st birthday (!) and received a gift certificate to Amazon from my wonderful Auntie Karen and promptly bought the projector with it. With Amazon Prime it arrived in 5 days.  I used Emily and Ava as models (can you tell who is who?). They do look a little like sleep walkers but not much I could do about that. I had help from my neighbors with the fingers as I had botched those. I used the projector and black poster board. **The cat and ghost silhouettes are Martha Stewart window clings from about 12 years ago.
And here is the view from inside.

Can you tell what this is? It's the side of my neighbors house (this view is in between two houses is why it's cut off and maybe hard to tell what's going on). My other neighbor put his TV projector out his bedroom window and projected stuff like the Thriller video and other music played to swirly stuff (like screen savers) on the side of my other neighbors wall. It was sooooo cool. He was seeing how it looked for Halloween night. Such a cool idea. It would be so cool to play movies in the summer or fireworks or a big game. 
 Some random things I made with my Silhouette machine. Bone garland...
 Bird and bat. There is a cat too. Love these! 

And lastly here is what my BF in Japan gave me for my birthday: These Kokeshi mugs (also some antique Kokeshi dolls which I forgot to upload). Love love love them!!

I think they look creepier on the inside than the outside! Maybe it's the curtain? I saw someone do that projector thing on patch! It was pretty cool! Happy birthday again!

Yah... they definitely look creepy from the inside. Those projectors are so cool. I've even seen people use them for Christmas and New Years. I am seriously loving your bone garland.

I love all of your decorations! If I put up the window things, they would end up scaring me more than anyone else....
The stuff from Jenny B is so sweet!

The cutouts are awesome! I saw the ones you pinned the other day and loved them. Some of my neighbors did the projector movie thing over the summer. As for the mugs and the antiques...your BF in Japan must be AMAZING :)
