The House of the Pumpkin Queen is a project
I began back in spring when my computer died.
Now finally the rooms are all done and have gotten lights!
Here's the Queen herself, hanging out in her pumpkin lounge.
The couch is an Ebay find that I painted, the pumpkin tables
are made from papier-maché. The vines and flowers are
paper crafts and the mirror was a gift from a blog friend.
On the top floor is also the Purple Witch's spell room.
It's hard to make out all the details, but there are spell books,
a broom and a pentagram made from paper and dry grass.
There's also a magical crystal ball and a black kitty.
(I wanted to show all the rooms in a dark spooky light, but it is very hard
to take a nice picture with the stupid Automatic White Balance
button stuck, so I had to take new pictures in daylight.)
On the first floor we find Frankenstein's laboratory.
The generator was made from a match box and two light bulbs.
The slimy green effect on the walls was made by
alternating acrylic silver paint and green spray paint,
and using a paint brush before neither had dried properly.
Dracula's quarters are the most luxurious of them all.
He has a thick velvet carpet and wall paper from London
based Cole & Sons :) His candelabra is made from beads
and the candles are pieces of old phone wire.
In the cellar the Wolfman has ripped free from his chains
and is bursting through the doors. Next to him is the tomb
of the former owners of the house, a place for dark rituals
and really great parties. I plan to add some bats to the ceiling.
I still need to figure out some kind of casing for the house,
since the whole thing is made from boxes of varying colors
and depths, and since the back is a jumble of cords and tape.
But I hope you have enjoyed the tour!
