Miniature Show

Today I went to the Lakeland Guild’s Miniature show.  This was its 25 year anniversary, around here that’s a long time.  I got a few things:

small bowl

This bowl is smaller than a dime and was wheel thrown then raku fired.


This is about 3/4 inch tall.  The people selling these had all different kinds of plants.

tiny chair

I couldn’t pass up this tiny garden chair.

I was really looking for some mid-century modern chairs but there was really nothing in that style.  All of this is for my realpuki soso that should arrive sometime in September.

I just can’t resist that smile she has.  I have been busy making her a home, a little decorated box, and now I have a few things to fill it with!

My magnets came in from K&J Magnetics so I got to work last night on the horns for the open eyed syen head.  She is on a body with beyla hooves so I thought some horns would work well.

I made these out of transparent and white Fimo.  I like how they have a marbled look so if I do any blushing it will be real light.

After some sanding they look nice.  I can’t wait to see them with the wig I’m waiting for.

Faceup finished.

Yesterday I finished the faceup and blushing for my Syen.

I’m happy with how it turned out, even the eyebrows.  I have so much trouble with eyebrows.

I also did her gargoyle feet.  Originally I wanted her to be grey and pink but the grey wasn’t showing up well so she’s a little blue.  Still waiting on her wig…

This was the latest dress I made.  I am never making little puff sleeves like this again!

She came today so much earlier than I expected.

I love her gargoyle feet and wings.  I haven’t made up my mind about the horns but they are growing on me, but I don’t like the gargoyle hands, they almost seem too big for her.

These are some of the dresses I have been making, the one on the left isn’t finished yet.  I’m going to have a couple of bald creatures for a while as their wigs have not arrived.  I’m not sure if I’m going to keep the Ai head (seen on the left doll) or use the open-eyed Syen.

I’m very happy with Syen, though her vampire head will need some sanding before I do her faceup, its a bit rough.

Shipping Notice!

I got my shipping notice from Soom.  My Syen will be here next week.  I was expecting sometime in August but this is great.  I’m working on clothes for her this weekend and I think I have eyes that’ll work but I’m still waiting on the wig.  Now I need to think up a name.
