Hey Ma I’m a Statue


Mr. Beatnheart had a commison to do an outdoor sculpture.


He needed some models and I thought it would
be fun.   Ha!  what a day that was...
All I can say is that for me it was way too
weird.  





I had to stick straws up my nose,
wrap plastic around my head,
and then my face in plaster...

and then hold still...

for way longer than I wanted to.

CLAUSTROPHOBIA!
PANIC ATTACK!

being a model is not as cool as I thought it would be...


our friend Paul was a super good sport about the whole thing.
He scuba dives so maybe that’s why it didn’t bother him 
as much as it bothered me.  
and he had to have that pipe in his mouth...


Thank goodness I didn’t have to do my whole body.

So if you are ever in Fort Wayne, Indiana at 
The Lincoln Insurance company...
there I is.

You are one of the immortals now.

I remember this happening at University and friends doing this. Wondered at the time how I'd manage if it were me. Worth the discomfort though with such a wonderful post.

I love that you are now "forever" immortal! Leave it to Mr. Beatnheart to need "models" for his wonderful sculpture....lol!

Most people have to cross the rainbow bridge, before they become statues...
I remember doing masks like that in school...

Immortality suits you.

Dear Cynthia,
I'm game for most things but, I don't think that I'd be very good with the straws up the nose bit.....I breathe a lot through my mouth so, if would probably be a little difficult for me so, well done you. I think that it would be rather nice to be immortalised in stone ( or whatever medium was used !!)
Just another life experience for you and a good one to talk about at dinner parties !!!!
Also, many thanks for your kind birthday wishes.....you are a lovely blogging friend. XXXX

That's amazing, so cool to be able to see yourself as a statue. I once made a plaster cast of my mate's stomach, but I made the mistake of not shaving it first...

OH how cool Cynthia! Well maybe not the process of being plastered and then have to pose for long periods but how cool that you are now immortal!!! I don't think I could have done it...nope I REALLY don't think so. I'm proud of you! Thanks for stopping by girl...it was good to 'see' you. I hope you and hubby are enjoying a wonderful weekend. Love YOU too!!! XO

How cool is that?! Good for you for not going ballistic with straws up your nose. :)

Very cool...I'd love to see the finished product in person.

This is a story I didn't expect. I had a friend do a face mask on me.
I had the straw up the nose. I went nuts, into a panic. It was awful. I once got stuck in the attic, same feeling. I have to say the plaster was the worst. Glad you survied. You are brave. yvonne
