The day before the big baby party, I finally got my belly cast made!
I won the cast as a raffle prize from Mom is da Bomb! a mother's day event at Hissyfits - a local 2nd hand boutique on 7th street and Glendale. Scheduling issues had delayed the process. Luckily, I was only getting bigger while we tried figuring out a time that worked for both myself and Maggie of Bambina's Bellies.
My sister took pictures during the process, which was awkwardly done in my kitchen while roommates and family members cleaned the house around me in preparation for Saturday's party.
That's Crisco on my tummy, and cast water all over my legs... plus I'm not sure why I'm practically naked and still wearing socks?
I'm super happy with the results though!
She did an amazing job with the cast, and although I won a complimentary basic paint, I asked if she wouldn't mind me completing the project myself with a collage idea I had in mind. She was super sweet and provided me with some materials to complete the project on my own!
Now I just have to find time to actually collage the belly... when I do I'll post pictures, but for now the cast is waiting patiently in Baby's room.
To get your own belly cast email BambinasBellies@gmail.com or call 480-695-5171, unfortunately, I don't know her pricing since I won mine. She also paints nurseries and such.
