Cotillón Nochevieja

 Después de mucho buscar la verdad es que no me gustó nada de lo que ví en las tiendas para el cotillón de Nochevieja.  Así que, como ya me conocen me puse manos a la obra para hacer el mío...La verdad que fue bien sencillo hacerlos y el efecto estupendo! Había con plumas amarillas y rosas para elegir y la próxima como que comienzo antes y les coloco más cosillas porque fueron todo un hit!


After looking around everywhere, I couldn´t find something that I liked for New Year´s Eve party. So I decided to make my own masks...It was really easy and they looked fabulous. I made them with pink or yellow feathers (so you could choose) and next year I´ll definitely make them again but earlier. This way I can put lot´s of more stuff on them lol!


Así era los cotillones antes de poner manos a la obra...This is what they looked like before the makeover...

Nada que un poco de pintura metálcia en spay y un poco de escarcha (o de purpurina como la llaman por estos lares) no pueda arreglar....
Nothing that a little metallic spray paint and some glitter can´t fix...
Luego, para evitar que la liga esa de medio mentira que le ponen se rompiera al primer intento de ponerse la mask, le puse una cinta de esas que se usan para empaquetar regalos. En realidad era lo que tenía a mano. Creo que con una liga más gruesa y más larga quedarían mejor... Punto a tomar en cuenta para las próximas que haga....
Then, in order the avoid the usual breaking of the super tiny piece of rubber that they come with, I replaced it with some red string- the type that you use to gift wrap. It was what I had in hand but if I do make them again I´ll definitely use a thicker and longer rubber band.
Una plumita por aqui, otra por allá y VOILA! A feather over here, another over there and VOILA!
Ahora sólo faltan las modelos... Let´s see them on the models...
