...and a random splash there!

Now all I need to do is build the fence sections.

Can't decide if she needs "Freak Show" printed on her forehead. Thinking I might make a couple of side panel things with posters/advertisements on them.

I don't think it really needs it printed on, giant head doorway does a good job of communicating it, but on the other hand I guess a group that would have a giant head for a doorway isn't exactly going for subtlety. You did a good job on the archways, they look great. If you're still trying to decide about side panels, one other option could be curtains. The somewhat creepy carnival that comes through our little town every year sets up an entryway that has no solid sides but heavy dark red curtains draped over a metal framework.

I vote 'yes' on the forehead tattoo. Wink
Wow.  This got really weird really fast.  The paint so far looks great!

As for forehead signage, I say do it if only because it ups the weirdness.  I mean, foreheads don't usually have things written on them - a familiar norm.  And you got a lot of ABnormal going on here so run with it!
Friendly reminder: T-minus 2 days until the submission deadline. I can't wait to see the finished piece!
Glad that it looks creppy - still think it would have worked a little better if I'd managed to get a non-antique baby doll head instead of the over-sized barbie one.

I've painted the side walls white, and printed some posters/signs to attach when the paint is dry. Looking at either putting a "carnival" sign on the forehead, or my Carnival of Mann picture.

The side pieces have a little slot that I will insert the fly mesh / wire fence into, and I'll probably put a bit of mesh on the sides of her face between the doors. Although I'm not planning on doing anything with the truck just yet, one day (after this competition) I'll build a flatbed for it, where the carnival can store the entrance/barbie head + the side gates with the wire fences roll up.

Hopefully I'll finish it up before the deadline. P-:

Any future competition entries that Terragenesis inspires will probably all somehow fit into my Freakshow / Carnival of Mann theme Big Grin
Timer says ~19 hours before the deadline, but I'll have to submit soon. Might be able add some grime, but this is basically done. Had to add mushrooms, otherwise it wouldn't really be a piece that fits my scrofulous wastelander carnival freakshow theme Big Grin

I guess it is as done as it'll be before the deadline.

The entire (unpainted) Wretched Scummers (scavvy gang) poses for a group photo - one of the posters is "teeny weenie comedians" and another "strange little people". Big Grin

The Human Mocking Bird, the leader of the Wretched Scummers (freak show gang) stands near his poster - he has always been a bit annoyed that his poster is on the Exit rather than out front.
