Belly Cast

Today some very good friends of mine came over to help me do a belly cast. It ended up being a really nice day. We had lunch, chatted about babies and made a cast of my large belly. It was an interesting feeling to be lathered with Vaseline and then covered in plaster but in the end it was kind of fun. Jon and I were supposed to do a maternity photo shoot with the photographer from our wedding but unfortunately some personal problems arose and we couldn't get them done so I'm really grateful to have the belly cast. I think once I get it painted I'll hang it on the wall in our bedroom.
We meant to take pictures of the process but to be honest we all had stuff on our hands so I'm not sure who was supposed be holding a camera. I was feeling a little self-conscious about my large body and wasn't sure that I wanted the largeness immortalized in plaster but I like the way it turned out. I'm looking forward to putting a design on it. Thank you Kyrie and Lindsay! It was a really fun day.


  1. I'm glad you ended up liking it! If you're still pregnant this weekend and I'm not sick, maybe I could come down and take some photos? I'd love the practice anyway.

  2. I'd love that! Let's check in on Saturday (though to be honest I'm hoping I'm not pregnant this weekend!)
