the brainchild concept was inspired by a friend.
her name is rachel brockley and she has recently started her own blog here on wordpress too: adventures on the brightside. it follows her exploits during the year as dictated by her new diary! [link]
anyway. because this was rach’s idea – her brainchild, if you will – i felt it only appropriate that i used her head as the centrepiece for this project. it’s as if the idea has come full circle, and now her own head will house the physical brainchild.
it turned out that the only time we were both free was also the day her diary instructed ‘pamper yourself‘. she has recorded the entire process and posted it on her blog. so rather than me relaying the entire thing again, you can read it from rach’s perspective [link]
this photo shows the comparison with real-life rach and her spare face! the material it is quite gel-like and fleshy to the touch, but is slightly chalky here as it has just been released from the mould. once cleaned up and coloured the cast is even more creepy that in the photo!
