I have no shame... =( Shameless McShameless III, that's me.
Still fighting the delays from February and I keep hoping for a chance to make proper posts here, but time just slips through my fingers, so I have to resort to massive post dumps on the days where I'm too tired to sew, such as today.
Let us begin!
First, a couple of mythological ladies, orders from the lovely L., in the UK, who wanted her litte Guybrush Deridoll to have some company. =)
Simpler than my first Medusa, who was half snake herself, this little one was far more elegant and her snakey hair has better wire structures to allow for easier bending/posing.
Not exactly the pattern I think of when thinking of Ancient Greece, but I embroidered the neckline of her dress in closed feather stitch, which I love dearly. <3
I wanted her eyes to look a bit reptilian, so her sequins are a mix of yellow and green.
The Egyptian goddess of truth and a whole new take for me on wings!
I'm actually a bit sad about her hair. =( Beads at the bottom of the hair don't work so nicely as in the top, where I can push the knots against the top of the head and get a more consistent length.
But, all in all, I'm super proud of her. She's beautiful and regal and the wings steal the show, imho. <3
