The Loz and Dinny Challenge: Meet SuperPops

Frances is not a very good model for this challenge as she's headless and armless!

You know how I just love a crafty challenge right?

Gemma from Loz and Dinny put out the call a little while back.
The challenge was to take a piece of this very lovely vintage gold fringing and create a 'one of a kind' masterpiece.

I joined up for the challenge very late and was racking my brain trying to work out what I could create. I had the idea for a brooch, but the fringing had other ideas when I tried it out.

I was lamenting the fact that I couldn't think of anything, when someone came to the rescue with a fabulous idea......

Tania
had christened me SuperPops a couple of weeks ago.... and so it stuck


A quick Wonder Woman google search, some sketching, and some measuring.... and I ended up with an outfit.


* I'm probably going to regret posting this photo tomorrow

** I really hope that the neighbours weren't watching me through the window while I was partaking in my photo shoot

*** There were originally plans for boob tassels on the bra thingy but that was taking it a little bit too far - even for me!


**** A huge thankyou to Tania from Myrtle and Eunice for the SuperPops inspiration.

To check out the other players, head on over to Loz and Dinny and check it out!

That is awesome and hilarious Cam. Don't worry about regretting posting the photo or what the neighbours think. No one will recognise that it's you with your Superhero gear on....!!! Remember all it took was glasses for Clark Kent to hide that he was Superman from the world!!!
