Virginie is incredible and I feel like we are kinda kindred in the style we choose for our work. She works large though 28" mine are small under 11" so, unfortunately its difficult to add as much detail. I do want to begin dressing them more and using decadent and sumtpuous fabrics.
It was a very odd long nap vintage crushed velvet and it catches the light nicely when angled. That was to get the lunar cat part of it across. If I had to do it again I think Id use a softer longer fur. This has a choppy look I couldnt avoid.
I really like green eyes. I think I want to make more of em for elvish girls. Yeah the furing it ack! you have to lay it like shingles starting at the bottom and working up as it dries. Next time I think real fur or silvergrey viscose would be better.
I am a complete fool for green eyes... I mean it SERIOUSLY. They mesmerize me... I can only imagine furring.. I freak thinking about wigging never mind FUR!!! You did a wonderful job, she's really striking (and this is coming from a CAT person.. love me love my CAT person).
Me too. I have darkbrown ,but my mom always talks about this gorgeous swedish guy with green eyes she met in Puerto Rico. I always say why didnt you make him my father! She says..he would have broke my heart!gah! So many neat hues too. I knew an 85 year old lady ,had the most incredible pale mint green eyes. I have never seen that hue natural before or since.
I have to take more pictures of her becasue these are soooo bad and I added eyelashes and more glitter so it would be visible. Im going to be making more furred things,but I guess I should stick to natural fibers. Wigging is actually harder I think,but furring an animal takes longer.
