Werewolf Parts

Yep, it's that time of the year again.

Also note the Punkin Ale above. These custom werewolf noses and ears have been selling pretty well lately in my Etsy shop.

Putting the fur and dog bone cartilage earrings on the ears...

And last but not least, pairing them up into matching sets to mail out...

I wish I was going where some of these ear and nose sets were going. Apparently there are all these werewolf parties going on across the United States that I'm not being invited to. Ah well, such is life.

Honeydew Bubble Tea Fairy

I didn't take as many in progress pictures as I usually do since I was really determined to finish her, but this is what I got:

Then she was finished and Paige came over to take the pro pictures.

Honeydew is now for sale in my Etsy shop and tomorrow The Junkman's Daughter in Little Five Points with the rest of the Glam Fairies! Here's the description I wrote for her.


I was attempting to slurp the dregs of a highly delicious honeydew bubble tea when I noticed this thing crawling up the straw. I nearly choked to death on a tapioca pearl.

“Honeydew” is doll number nine in my Glam Fairies series. She's about four inches or so tall in her bubble tea cup (somewhat counting her hair.) She is sculpted from a mix of Sculpey III and Studio Sculpey over a strong metal armature. Her pale green skin has been lightly blushed with Pebeo heat set ceramic paints then detailed in acrylics. Her hair is hot pink Tibetan lamb’s wool and her dark mauve eyes are made of glass. Honeydew's dress and lacy pink knickers are made from recycled fabric scraps, her iridescent wings from "Purple Flash" Angelina Fusible film and jeweler's wire. On the nape of her neck underneath her hair is signature red kiss of Quarley, which identifies her as a one-of-a-kind edition to the Glam Fairies line. Honeydew comes inside of her colorful plastic "crazy bubble tea" cup, complete with faux honeydew bubble tea with Sculpey tapioca pearls and a balled up napkin stuck to the side of the cup. She can be taken out of the cup to look at but she refuses to let go of the straw. Perhaps Honeydew was formed from the bubble tea itself, or perhaps she is merely guarding the tapioca pearls. Either way I am not going to bother her.

New Glam Fairy In The Works

I haven't made a glam fairy in forever, and since someone has recently requested for me to start selling them at the Junkman's daughter I figure it's about time. I just started on a honeydew bubble tea fairy tonight. I now have every Prismacolor marker ever created so designing her in color was totally fun and easy. Also, ever since I bought a bubble tea from the now closed down Sweet Lime Asian restaurant on the corner, I saw that so happy bubble tea cup and knew I had to save it and make a fairy with it someday. So far I've built her an armature with wire and that smelly two-part epoxy compound:

Oh, and since I'm so stoked about the markers, here's a shot just for them. Aren't they magnificent?
