This took me two seasons of Deadwood to complete....stab you embroidery.



Hairy details.



Update: I forgot to mention...the eyebrows, eyelashes and a few other details are done with a single thread split in half. Not a method I would really endorse as it's like trying to embroider with a strand of freakin' fairy floss. Very VERY easy to snap. However I believe the extra effort and push towards insanity was worth it in the end.
