All right, there’s not actually any way I can pass off this styrofoam replica of a golden fertility idol
meant to resemble this one from Raiders of the Lost Ark
as remotely suitable for an All Saints’ Day party. It does hold special meaning for me, though, because as I studied the above photo intently while jabbing at a ball of styrofoam with a spoon, I noted the exact moment when I began to freak out about giving birth. (Yes, I censored the model I made, for reasons other than running out of styrofoam. It’s for my 7-year old son, who asks enough questions as it is.)
Here’s a tip for you: it’s harder than you’d think to make a golden idol out of styrofoam, tin foil, spray paint, duct tape, and a spoon. But the boy is happy.
