My boyfriend is a secret paleontologist

In my last post I mentioned that my boyfriend, Shayne, had made me some pretty cool dinosaur things for Christmas. I was hoping to get them installed so I could take some pictures but I thought about it some more and I really want to save them until we move out together.

Before I get to the pictures, I just want to mention how freaking talented Shayne is. These projects required molding, sculpting, painting, and a lot of creativity. It's so not fair how much better he is at painting than I am; I had four years of art classes and he's never had a single lesson.

Here we go!

The first thing Shayne made for me was this Tyrannosaurus rex shower head. Yup! It's a shower head! I saw one a while ago on Pinterest. I got really excited and showed it to Shayne but apparently it was made from one of those 3D printers and there's no place online that you can actually buy the printed shower head. I may be biased, but I think mine is cooler anyway.

Plesiosaurs are my absolute favourite dinosaurs. These are actually shower curtain hooks (Shayne mounted them on some cardboard so they aren't tumbling around together). Apparently my boyfriend carved a negative and made a mold of them and hand painted each one (I feel so incredibly lucky).

Shayne's told me eventually I will have an entire bathroom accessory set but he's still working out how to make them. I'll post pictures when they're made!
