001 002004005c she is finished…and as I went on, she told me her story which I will write down, but as I worked, and she came more and more to life, she was very vocal about  what her clothes needed to look like… for example I wondered why she insisted on the little cross/ dagger hanging against her chest, which had to be visible and the leather high collar that encased her neck, and the leather armor around vulnerable pulse points…then i realised…she is a vampire hunter… and her needs became clear…

an assortment of stakes for her crossbow..silver, wooden, wood with silver ….

j and a very serious looking whip with silver chains h

k and a travel bag with all her other necessary vampire hunting equipment…the bag closes and opens.

l and contains removable items…bible, hand held stakes, a wooden mallet, a wooden cross, a silver cross and  holy water in bottles 159 a2 a1 m

200All three come with their own story in a little book, and a certificate of authenticity…these ones are Clara’s, the vampire hunter.

bready for the fight…bringing death to the undead!

t  Then I turned my attention to this little lady who was equally vocal  …she is the Morrigan from celtic myth

nop and when she saw her friends amor she insisted on her own, but in a very different style, with crow claw-like fierce boots, leather, chains, metal chest and back plates…

y she has a feathered shoulder piece, a crow skull head-piece, and a bone stick / baton  through her hair…

Mr. Messori, Felix to his friends!

I made the fabric for his jacket and topper from cotton, feathers, leather, various pieces of chain and links, ribbon, suede and lots and lots of stitching!

jlmHis motto written on black card , tucked into the ribbon trim on his hat and a close up of his crow…one of his symbols / incarnations even… and the two sides of his face grim / sad …

and happy  n

o His book – the ars moriendi…leather bound wih tiny little copies of pages of one of the real ones from the library of congress…and a close up of the fabric I made for his skinny fits…p

The bug catcher and another stitch picture – both in progress!

Just so you don’t worry that my fingers have been idle recently …a few pictures of what I am working on at the moment…
a new sculpture … the bug catcher, from one of my pen and ink illustrations … His leather funnels!
He’s lots of fun to do – but still disturbingly headless – lots to do!

And the new large stitch picture i am working on simultaneously…. the girls’s outfit, hat and long feather will be the only colour / fabric – the trees i have machine embroidered and am busy working into it by hand to give the effect almost of biro scribbling / sketching…once i have finished the trees i will add beadwork to the hat and long feather…
