Jellyfish umbrella by pikajane Jellyfish umbrella by pikajane
I am really excited to share this one! It all started with a doodle, and blew up from there.

I got the design printed on transparencies, and spent hours cutting them out. Then I spray mounted them onto the umbrella. The tentacles of the umbrella were made with beads I got at Michael's, and the little jellyfish at the bottom of the tentacles were made using the bottom parts of easter eggs. I used paint markers to draw derpy faces on them.

The model is me :) I made a point to dress up to match my umbrella. It was photographed by the teacher at my school, and I edited to raw file.

Here's the doodle that inspired it all:

This seemed to turn out really well, I'd say. Great job. And well done with the creativity you put into it; using the Easter eggs, for example.

It's too bad the design won't stay on, though. Are you looking for a way to change that, or are you fine not having a jellyfish umbrella to take out in the poor weather?

Thank you very much!

Te main reason why the design won't stay on is because once I fold the umbrella back up, the designs will wrinkle, and the spray adhesive will peel off. I'd love to find a way to change that, but the only way I can reasonably think of doing so is to find a way to screen print on my umbrella, and I think that's a rather pricy endeavor for this. I'd love the idea of using a jellyfish umbrella all over Chicago, but I think this is destined to just be a fancy mockup.
