(...not going shopping... not going shopping...)
I think I will add some embellishment to her boots yet, and perhaps another dangle on the staff. I also need to tame her hair somehow. The back view is very flyaway.
On the whole though, I am very pleased with her, especially her pretty face and her clothes! I think I will make a bag like hers for my own some day. The color orange is really growing on me.
And then there are these 2 little guys. A while ago I bought some glow-in-the-dark Sculpey to play with. It sounded like fun, though at the time I had no idea what I was going to do with it.
The one on the right is my first attempt. I'm not crazy about him, but in the interests of full disclosure, here he is. Gads, a close-up photo isn't doing him any favors here either. Sigh... His facial sculpt is pretty crude; I tried to rescue it with some paint, but... it isn't working for me. (My husband thinks everything I make turns out wonderfully; I tell him that's because I don't show him the duds.) Maybe I can rescue him with some embellishment. I am thinking a chiffon drape along the lines of the Grim Reaper's cowl. Otherwise he will just have to retire to the "parts" basket.
The little guy on the left is the result of my second attempt. I am much happier with the way he turned out, though he's more cute than scarey. I really really need to practice sculpting faces. If I get some time this aftgernoon, I'm going to string him into a necklace to wear on Halloween.
