auntie mame-onnaise

rosalind russell as auntie mame made from mayonnaise.

this is in response to swapatorium's awesome mame collage from wed. i heart both swappy and mame! (i heart mame so much that i'm thinking about making my little nephew to be call me that when he can finally talk.)

bond. gold bond.

james bond insignia made from gold bond foot cream.

i'm a fan of james bond movies for the simple fact that they help me fall asleep. (i never sleep enough and adore anything that'll help me catch some z's.)

catching up

sadly, i'm not 100% with the back issue but i decided to go ahead and play catch up anyway.

here's samantha brownie mix a.k.a. samantha brown made from brownie mix.

sam brown's shows are the only ones that i'll watch on the travel channel. i heart her.

next is "quiche lorraine" or lea thompson as lorraine baines in "back to the future".

technically, it's not a *real* quiche lorraine because i don't eat pork.

lastly, it's icy hoff. you know, david hasslehoff made from icy hot in honor of my damn back pain.

sorry the hoff's not in focus. it hurt to stand still.

anyway, back tomorrow.

sorry, no new images today. i'm still dealing with the limited mobility thing but it's *starting* to get better.

if you're looking for something to read, the bf went to a donut eating contest this weekend. words, pictures and video.

back on monday

readers of my other blog know that i'm ridiculously clumsy. (i'm really tall. i've never gotten used to it.)

i mention this because i did a number on my lower back on saturday (please don't ask) and kinda' need to crash on the floor for a while until things straighten themselves out, as it were.

anyway, i'll be back on monday with two new fugitives. you know, if i manage to not lock myself in the fridge accidentally or something else randomly idiotic.

lindsay glohan

lindsay lohan made from the "juice" of a glostick. (in other words, i activated a glostick, cut it open and painted with the liquid inside. kids, don't try this at home.)

i have worked with some pretty odd materials in my time but i do believe that this liquid takes the cake. here it is in daylight.

and again in the dark.

my paintbrush was glowing! it was *awesome*!

eggshell getty

estelle getty on eggshell.

i was saddened to read of estelle getty's death yesterday. best known for her role of sophia on "the golden girls", mrs. getty began acting in 1978. throughout her long career, she garnered seven emmy nominations with one win for outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series in 1988.

i wish that i had been able to complete my golden girls set on a happier note.

(apologies to dr. ryan for not going with his idea. i had the eggs at hand but would've had to've gone shopping for pasta.)

sunscreen george hamilton

george hamilton made from sunscreen (spf 30).

i'll never achieve the golden, basted turkey hue of george hamilton's fabulous tan since i wear spf 30 in the shade. s'ok though. if i had a fantatic tan, people might doubt that i lived in seattle.

red divines

divine on red vines.

divine is, without a doubt, my favorite man in drag. he and john waters were two major reasons for my taking up residence (briefly) in baltimore. (the others being 1) it wasn't tennessee 2) i had friends living there already)

soleil moon pie

a young, "punky brewster" era soleil moon frye on a moon pie.

here's a bit of "punky brewster" trivia for you! apparently, there was a real punky brewster who was, like her fictional counterpart, quite a tomboy. rumor has it that brandon tartikoff, nbc programming head at the time the show aired, had a crush on the real life punky when he was younger. due to his case of "puppy love", punky's dog on the show (who followed her faithfully) was named brandon.

yamuel l. jackson

samuel l. jackson made from yams.

i'm not exactly sure what they would call this in paris...

Friday, July 18, 2008

dijon stewart

jon stewart made from dijon mustard.

while i'm nowhere near as funny as jon stewart, i do understand what it's like to put on a "daily show" of sorts. (ok, that was just bad. haha!)

i thought i'd take a break from the portraits today and make a fugitive for one of my favorite seattle-ites, cakespy jessie!

(cakespy cuppy made from pink icing)

jessie is not only awesome and hysterically funny (on her blog and in real life), she's also a big supporter of suspect and fugitive. i really can't thank her enough.

and, in addition to being an all around amazing peson, she's the artist of the month at venue in ballard! if you're in seattle, please swing by and check out her show!

if you're not in the seattle area, take a look at her etsy page! it's sure to satisfy the sweetest of sweet teeth!

nat king cole slaw dressing

nat king cole made from cole slaw dressing.

(hello to serious eats and tastespotting readers! thanks for stopping by!)

tomato pasty cline

patsy cline made from tomato paste.

i don't have anything to really add to this one except for the fact that i wasn't walking after midnight trying to find tomato paste. thankfully, it's much more easily attainable than pez otherwise, i surely would've fallen to pieces.

technical difficulties

sorry if you had any problems reaching the site. i just purchased the new domain name ( and, while the redirect should have gone smoothly, there's a chance you might've gotten an error message.

there might also be sporadic errors over the next few days but things should be sorted out by the end of the week if not sooner. sorry for any inconvenience this might have caused.

terri garrlic powder

terri garr made from garlic powder.

if you're anything like me, your favorite of terri garr's roles was "inga" in "young frankenstein".

an aside about "young frankenstein", if you will. one of my friends used to use sound bites from the movie on his answering machine. to this day, when i watch that film and hear certain lines, i have the overwhelming urge to say "hey, s'me. gimme' a call later."

shin on a shin

james mercer on my shin.

for the record, the shins did not change my life. although i have seen them twice (once opening for black heart procession and modest mouse in a dump in baltimore and once at the appropriately located mercer ave easy st. records in seattle) and was particularly fond of "oh, inverted world" when it first came out.

anyway, that's it for the sub pop fugitives. sorry, no cobain.

ear of chris cornell

chris cornell on an ear of corn.

are you catching the (not so) subtle sub pop theme of the past two days? that's because it's subpop's 20th anniversary this weekend. it's a pretty big deal in seattle.

oh! for those of you keeping score, leff and i were given free tickets to the sp20 comedy show so i DID get to see kristen schaal AND todd barry! hooray!

Friday, July 11, 2008

kissten schaal

kristen schaal made from kissables.

ms. schaal is in town for sp20 this weekend. leff was lucky enough to spot her while he was on the bus. *so* jealous!

(i swear if i see either of the conchords, kristen schaal or david cross around town this weekend, i will *die*!)

basil rathbone

basil rathbone made from dried basil.

this one works a lot better if you use the british pronunciation of "basil" instead of the american one.

shishonen knife

shonen knife on shiso leaves.

i'll always adore shonen knife and not only because they like banana chips as much as i do.

Tuesday, July 8, 2008

check hanson

beck hanson made from three checks. although, not cancelled ones.

have you heard the new beck album yet? while it's not exactly groundbreaking stuff, i'm finding it to be quite nice. although it makes me want to eat greasy chicken quesadillas and drink cheap beer. (that's a knoxvegas association. don't ask.)

anchovy bon jovi

jon bon jovi made from anchovy paste.

something's fishy in new jersey!

troyster sauce, john watersmelon v2

troy mcclure made from oyster sauce.

and here's the second version of john watersmelon (john waters made from watermelon).

a bit better but not perfect. here it is backlit.

and now it's time for me to be off to mt. rainier! see you monday!

john watersmelon 1.0

i'll be honest with you, i'm not happy with this john watersmelon but i'm short on time today. let's just consider this v 1. i'll post the 2.0 version tomorrow along with another new fugitive.

in the mean time, however, here's the first john watersmelon. (john waters made from watermelon.)

uncle spam

uncle sam on spam.

i don't normally do the patriotic thing but this was such a goofy idea that i couldn't resist.

happy july 4th if you happen to live stateside. if not, have a great friday!

two whole grain ladies

beatrix potter made from trix cereal

and a honey nut jackie o. (jackie o made from honey nut cheerio's.)

i didn't know that sugar cereals were available in whole grain versions until i bought some for these two fugitives. somehow whole grain trix is just...wrong.

back to the dentist

i'm going back under the drill this morning for a three hour procedure. hopefully, i'll be back tomorrow with two fugitives. if it takes longer for me to recuperate, i'll see you on friday with three.

pancake blanchett

cate blanchett made from pancake mix.

i thought about trying to cook her but i'm fairly certain that she would burn too quickly.
