So… I had a moment of weakness.
I went to a friend’s Masquerade themed birthday party, but that wasn’t the weakness.
I knew I didn’t have a mask, and I forgot that my contacts hadn’t quite made it up to college with me… so a mask for this party was out.
And… I made an eyedrive from Doctor Who
I tooled it slightly, in the “eyeball” region to give it a nice texture, then got it wet and began to wetform it to my eye.
Imagine a roommate coming into the apartment and seeing me blow-drying my eye.
But I didn’t want to give up. So I started painting.
First came the base layer of black.
Then I mixed in some gold and gave it a few more coats!
I’ve attached it to my eye with tape loops, since I couldn’t figure out another way that didn’t involve it looking like a pirate’s eyepatch. I certainly wouldn’t recommend this method for anything but short term engagements. I was able to see out of it a bit though. Out the bottom and the sides, which felt weird.
