"The Countess": an AHS cake for Cakeflix Collaboration
" American Horror Story has been a huge hit and one of my favourites of all time. Each season a different story …each one more catching than the previous! Then in the last seasons a new character, a new actress: Lady Gaga. She portrays Countess Elizabeth, the main protagonist villainess of American Horror Story Hotel, who is formerly the owner of the Hotel Cortez which her ex-husband James March owns and kidnapped children by turning them into vampires.
I chose her and her macabre look as a symbol of this show I love so much, but mixed her with another gorgeous character, Twisty the clown…as if she somehow got to steal his terrific mask.
She is completely modelled by hand, using modelling sugar paste; the eye is free hand painted and detailed using Art Gel which I have also used to recreate the blood and the lace.
“We have two selves. One the world needs us to be — compliant — and the shadow. Ignore it and life is forever suffering.”
