I'm fairly new to embroidery and still kind of experimenting with different stitches and making different things happen. After seeing that amazing tentacle stumpwork by Jemimah I decided to try my hand at some 3-D stitching. I decided that if anything deserved to be in 3-D, it was Gene Simmons tongue (another plus was that his makeup design is pretty simple)

The makeup is just silk stitching and the tongue is felt stuffed with batting, then felted a bit to make it a little more solid and then covered in floss.

Agreed.  EXCELLENT!  The tongue grosses me out and makes me cringe.

** when i was like 11 my 15 yr old sister had a crush on Gene Simmons and would tell me how she just wanted to kiss him in real life.  BARF.
