This order was for a wedding cake topper. I had a lot of fun making these two, and I made sure we communicated to make sure I got the right colour green to match the wedding.
The veil and bow tie are just held in place with pins, so that after the wedding the cats won't look funny without their accessories.
I've asked for a pic of them on the cake.

But we have flamethrowers. And what this indicates to me, it means that at some point, some person said to himself, "Gee, I sure would like to set those people on fire over there. But I'm way too far away to get the job done. If only I had something that would throw flame on them."

Thanks everyone for your nice comments. I'm pretty happy with them myself.  Grin
They are jetting their way over from Australia to Houston TX and I'm hoping the bride and groom like them too!
I'm waiting for the news that they have arrived safely (always my worst nightmare that my feltpets don't arrive at their destinations!).
I will post a pic of the wedding cake, if they remember to send one to me.  Smiley

Are they based on the couple's actual cats?

Yep the cats are based on their kitties: a short haired snowshoe and a long haired bluepoint birman.
I was sent a few pics of them and I just went from there.  Smiley

They were about 65mm / 2.5 inches tall, so they fit in the palm of your hand.
