Return of the pinata!  
I really made an Pinata!Envy! XD

Biding his time.. vengence shall be his!

"Who're you calling smaller than gliding automan stool! WHAT? I'm not about to take any of that from a house cat sitting down--DAMMIT PLUSHIE BODIES STINK!" ... Plushie!Ed has issues...

Step One: get balloons, two shall be enough. I used water-balloon balloons. Then I cut half circles out of paper for the legs and such.

Tie or tape balloons together!

And tape on those appendages!

AH! I faceless blob of a ghost! I did a layer of newpaper fairly thick, and then I did plenty of white tissue paper. From here on you can make a pinata of whatever character you want. Yay for paper mache!

Let there be flesh! Unlike what I did, it's best to make sure everything is DRY before painting. I was impatient.

Ah! Camelot! Get out of Envy's hair!

I looped the yarn and sniped only one side of it. That way everytime I put a 'hair' on, I actually apply TWO! Faster that way...

Behold my ghetto hot glue gun. I can never find it when I need it. A candle and a glue stick work okay, just be careful you don't drip and watch where you put the stick after using it if it's still soft/hot.

"I'm not being a nuisance! I'm HELPING!"

This is where my impatience prooved dangerous. I poked the head and torso with a needle to pop the balloons. Then I used my exacto knife to cut a 'trap door' into Envy's back and stuffed him with candy. I resealed the hole with leftover glue stick.

Why was this dangerous? Having not let the glue dry ALL the way through, and the neck also wet on the outside from the paint, Envy tried to behead himself. Note to self: ALWAYS let the pinata dry THOROUGHTLY, and give it a little extra drying time after cutting a 'trap door' in it to be SURE the inside is as dry as the outside.

flip over and paint some more! Hot glue on material if you want! Yay! You have a pinata!

XD Follow the step by step instructions to make your OWN mini pinatas!

EDIT: I'm debating taking pinata!Envy to Anime Reactor, or saving him for Anime Central. I'm not sure if the chocolate in him will still be good (hell, I don't even know if it's good now) but the taffy and sweetarts and lifesavers and the lemon head should stay good...

PS: I still have plenty of balloons and paper mache glue... XD

Isn't Ed's coming up? They burnt down their house, they caught the train, they studied with Tucker *glares at tucket*, there was the Barry the Chopper incident, and THEN, somewhen, Eylisia was born on Ed's birthday!

...hm... maybe not quite. Maybe Al's then first so he can breifly catch up to Ed before Ed's birthday and thus maintain the 1 year age difference that held sway during the series...

That is really cute, now which pinata should I try? I know I wanted to beat anime!Pride upside the head for the last few episodes. ;_;
Justine Ysabel Perezjoruri on October 4th, 2004 01:49 am (UTC)
I'm not gonna be making these to beat, I'm gonna store candy and stuff in side of them. XD But if you're to make one to beat, anime!Pride gets my vote. >:O

Zranazrana on October 4th, 2004 02:18 am (UTC)
I love my tubby kitty! She tries to suffocate me with love in my sleep!

No! Don't beat up Ed, he's had enough crap in his life!

This is wonderful. It really is. While I was entertained by the awesomeness of pinata!Envy, the fact that you've taught us how to make them so we can all have our own pinatas is the best! And so many possibilities to choose from... I just need to get myself some glue.

PS: Your cat rocks.

PPS: I noticed Ed in the first photo is pictured alongside his biggest fan. Sorry, I had to say it.

Is it your cat, Lulu?

OH MY GAWD. You = genius.
I SO want to do that for hallowe'en .

D'you have any ol' Barbie dolls? One of the things I'd always wanted to make was psycho up my ol' Barbie dolls(I am ashamed) and make'em Sin costumes [everyone wants to hear about your life,Niwa]. Next time, an Envy punching ball maybe? Or a 'poke the Envy' thingie... How much time did the realisation take you?
Zranazrana on October 4th, 2004 10:51 am (UTC)
Hmm.. Let's see.. I started making it around 10-11p. Minus the hour or so I worked on other pinata's while it dried (mostly), minus the trip to work to drop off fresh made salad, and I went to work on it again, minus time trying to find glue gun in vain... What time did I post this again? It looks like I got done before 3 am. (No class on mondays for me.) So.. maybe 4 hours tops?

I REALLY should have left it to dry over night before painting though...
