Sorry for all the photos, but there is a LOT to see on this doll. I urge you to download for better viewing, it's big, but I didn't make it THE BIGGEST EVER! This is a trade with the amazing
of her original species, the tassel dragon. A feline head in a fun foo-style very meticulously sculpted as were the feet which were done with lots and lots of wire rooting and sculpey firm for durability. Sadly I got worried about the toes and tried to coat them with a bit of gorilla glue before painting so they appear slightly bubbly.. it's not very noticeable though I'd rather have some texture than a snapped off toe!
The wings were hand sewn and coated with fabric glue, the feathers came from an old costume head dress i have had for years, I am fairly certain they are a mix of cormorant and rooster feathers. The large feathers have a gorgeous green/purple luster that I reproduced in the paint job. The chest scales are red velvet meticulously hand sewn with sequins, crow shine beads, and reflective red beads. I wasn't happy with the tail as just the long fur dyed, so I took another whopping 6 hours to cut bits of yarn and hand fray them and then sewn them down to emulate the "foo swirls" I know they are more crimps than swirls but I'm fairly happy with how it turned out.
Commissions are open and desperately needed to pay vet bills!!! Please be aware: feathers take a lot longer than bat wings, and feathers tend to be expensive. The pricing for feather wings will reflect this, while bat wings are 25.00 extra feather wings unless requested simple will be 50.00 and trust me: for quality feathers (aka not neon craft feathers glued helter skelter together) this pricing is covering their price, not my labor.
