Ladies n' gents, meet Lycania...

She was created for Zombina Skeleton for the recent Monster swap; she named her Lycania  Smiley

Front view... that silver-black fur is super soft.

Some face shots:

The face is sculpted from polymer clay, with some details painted in acrylic clay. Her eyes are glass marbles backed with glow in the dark clay - and yes, the eyes glow too!! All the piercings are jump rings with tiny silver beads glued on to represent CBRs. It's both sewn & glued onto the neck.
The mohawk is white fur I coloured with permanent pink ink, I think it glows under a UV light? I didn't have a good one on hand to really check..

Back shot to show off the tail...

Paws!! Pawpads are fleece (so are the insides of the ears), with needlesculpted toes. The claws on the hands are rubber clay, I wanted them a little flexible so they're less apt to break. Painted with acrylic, then both sewn & glued on.

She's 100% handsewn, and the pattern is all made from scratch. It could use a few improvements, like the crooked arms.. Undecided d'oh. But my partner loves her, and that's what matters!!

Here's how big she was... bye for now!
