This was quite a challenge to make.
His scissors are made with shrinky dinks and then "bolted" together using silver wire and glass beads.
His buckles are all jewelry findings, and his studs are all glass beads.

his body is made from fake leather, and his head from muslin. His hair is Yarn that was separated into two strands, and then teased into what you see here after being wefted and sewn on.
Edward took about 24 hours to make. For me, that was 3 days.
His face was drawn with disappearing ink pen and then painted using acrylics and fabric textile medium.
He's jointed using black buttons.









I had a request to make this guy again. So...more pics:

Edward II

That is so amazing, and I can tell that you put a ton of time into him.  She is going to go nuts when she sees the awesomeness.  You rock!
