La di deee, the second life-size Mew. With some directed alterations.
I think I got the Mew-ness down better, what about you guys?
Also, the first of my needlefelts to have my signature on it. It's that swirly thing on the foot. It looks the same upside-down.
This one already has a home guys, but you can order one made just for you if you'd like, for 500 USD. Needlefelting is an intensive process.
This creation was made with a type of crafting called needle felting. Basically what happens is I take a bunch of loose (i.e. roving) wool and jab it with a needle (many, many times). The wool bonds to itself, slowly getting firmer and firmer. Eventually, it's firm enough to stand by itself in a sculpture-like way. By adding more roving wool, I can sculpt a creature or a person or whatever out of the wool.
Needlefelting is a relatively new craft, having only been invented 30 years or so ago. It's similar to the process of wet felting, but instead of using water, needles are used.
My needlefelt creations almost always include a wire base, so they are extremely posable, and I find the freedom of sculpting and the resulting plushness to be everything I could have asked for in a medium.
I happily take commissions, and my prices range from 20 and up, depending on the complexity but mainly on the size.
