Aren't they a charming duo? A skinny little (french?) pirate and his beautiful mermaid cousin. They don't have names yet, I am going to leave that up to the niece and nephew, but they do have accessories! The pirate has a treasure chest full of chocolate booty, and he comes with a skull and crossbones bandanna for a real little boy to wear. The mermaid comes with barrettes and a matching headband for my little niece and she comes with a seashell bracelet and a starfish bracelet so she can be best friends with her new mommy. All together they took me about 5 hours, not including breaks and photo shoot =D

Her hair is my favorite part. It took over and hour and it is ten rows of single strands of yarn individually sewn on. I didn't even care how tedious it was because it is such beautiful mermaid hair!

Their eyes were originally going to be buttons, but I am glad I just did sharpie instead. Their little mouths are a pink fabric marker. The decision to go with the mustache was a tough one, but in the end i am happy. I am glad i did not choose to do a goatee as well...eww.

And of course, cat shot. She is normally a ham, but I think sensing the superior beauty of the mermaid she fled, not wishing to look sub par.

What do you think?
