Wanda Lust in Costume

When we first got our hands on Wanda Lust, she was rather ugly in my opinion. I didn't like the ugly gold stripe at all (top right pic). So we painted her and you can see the results in the last discussion I did. But before we painted her, we had an artist use some photoshop skills to try some new looks on her before we committed. One of my ideas was to make her look like the companion cube from the video game, Portal (lower left pic). Kind of nerdy, I know, but also kind of awesome I thought! But it would have been way too much work for us to actually paint her that way. :)

I like the color combination! Wanda Lust looks like a mobile house.

Thank you about the colors! Yes, she really IS like a mobile house! A very tiny, teeny mobile house! LOL. She measures six feet wide by 10 feet long! :)

@rina110383 Yup! But much more home-like than a tent would be! :)

What a cool little camper and so good of your friend to do that with the computer for different looks. As old it is and as old as I am I would have made it a hippy cart, the blue on the bottoms and flowers everywhere on the top.

LOL! You know it's funny because one of my favorite ones in this grouping is the blue on the bottom with the colorful circles on top. My husband said it reminded him of a bag of Wonder Bread though. :)

Thank you! I'm glad you agree. The gold stripe was rather boring and was much more a boring tan with age. I think the aqua color is much prettier and I can still find vintage accessories that match. :)

Thank you! She still needs finishing on the inside, but she is finished enough that we can use her while we are still working on her so yes, indeed! I hope we will be taking her for a camping trip to New York and to Maine this year and also some other smaller trips I hope to fit in! :)
