Concepts and Scent Lockets

So I've been working on concepts for A Circus tent Full Of Ghosts and i have a few to post:

These are just a few of the main players. We plan to at least have a sample copy of the book at VUDUCON

On another note, I have been wanting a scent locket for a while now but the cheapest I have found have been in the $70.00 - $90.00 range. Not to mantion most are very girly. So I made a quick trip to SkyCraft (I love the smell of grease and aircraft parts on my lunch break) and I picked up a little Doflotchy for a whole .50 cents. I rearranged the screw and added a dab of locktight so it would not go anywhere, drilled out the stem of the screw, and stuffed the core with muslin. I than made a choker with some beads I had.

Here is the final product:
Anyway, this morning I loaded it up with BPAL's "Arkham" and it seems to work well. It's not silver like most recommend but the brass seems to transfer the body heat just fine (and looks steampunk in the process).

so now I am exuding:

"A shadowy, unapproachable forest of maple, birch, dogwood, cypress and pine softened by a garland of New England wildflowers: bergamot, columbine, rue anemone, blue violet, creeping phlox, bloodroot, toadflax, and pixie moss."       <- love this smell BTW.
I have to finish up the concept arts this coming week and I really want to get back to the soul tree. Of course I still have my own series for VUDUCON... Busy Busy Beaver...
