Garden Witch

We decided to make an old school witch to spook sensitive children.  It's an old lady mask from Walmart.  I ripped the bonnet off and painted her up like a witch.

God, I love my wife.

i didn't want to use a witch mask for this one...she has the weirdest long white eyebrows...looking forward to her getting grungy from the weather...hoping her face cracks a little. the empty eyes look very odd from the sidewalk...you can't see it in the photos but i painted green and brown grime between her smiling teeth

The “old lady” looks so content. She brings back such somber memories of my youth when I was once traumatized by a witches mask. I was 8 or 9 and it was Halloween night. My brother and I were traveling to grandmother’s house for a visit. We still needed to purchase our costumes so we stopped by the local five-and-dime. There were only two masks left, a werewolf and a witch. Being a younger brother guess which one I got stuck with. Needless to say everyone thought I was a little girl dressed as a witch. Thanks Rot for undoing years of therapy <:)

Amazing idea!!! She's extremely spooky!! And very realistic. I love those black puffy flowers in the garden where she's hiding too. What a perfect little scene. I bet kids will love it!
