My package from Birdbones arrived on Wednesday, but the evil postal delivery man didn't bother to knock on the door, so I had to trek out to the post office to pick it up. Finally managed to do that today.

Though my expectations were high, she succeeded in completely astounding me anyway. First of all, the package itself was epic:


It must have made postal workers smile across two continents!

Then when I opened up the box, I found THIS staring up at me:

I stared at it a moment trying to get my head around exactly WHAT I was looking at. Still baffled, I removed the chocolate packing material and pulled out my new mutant companion.


<several minutes of speechlessness> Wow.

Spidery legs and leaves on its back:


Top view:

But look - the face with all the eyes isn't actually attached; it's just kind of mask that's tied onto a leather garment the creature is wearing. What's underneath?


Agghhh!  Shocked

I thought I couldn't be more surprised, but there was more to come:

The shiny steel tusks (which I couldn't get a good picture of) pull out to reveal a drawer. No wonder he didn't eat all the chocolate - his mouth was already full...


...of eyes! Cheesy Birdbones remembered that my own collection had gone missing, so she sent me some to re-stock the eye bank with! They're wonderful! One can never have too many eyes.


Birdbones was being overly cautious, and used more packing material than was strictly necessary for shipping, but better safe than sorry. Wink

Thank you so much for this WONDERFUL whatever-it-is! I can't take my eyes off it. (And vice versa, of course.) I only hope you enjoy your new mutant friend half as much as I do mine. (She's very different, but special in her own way.) And I hope the surface mail to Germany doesn't take too punishingly long.

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

Oh, I am so glad it made it to you in one piece, dear Professor Ocelot  and I sincerely hope the speechlessness wasn't due to a lack of attraction ( I heard it practising it's royal-greeting-growl for you when settling into the transportation crate and it kept re-doing it, cursing itself to be less ferocious and more loving Grin)

And I realize now, it should have come with an instruction manual... , but I see you have been victorious in discovering it's secrets... except one maybe:

It likes to have note-paper stored in it's big mouth when freed of holding on to eyeballs ..

 

I will continue waiting patiently for the wonderous mutant that is on it's way here and I am hoping it doesn't make too many sight-seeing stops on the way Grin

I did find the notepaper, but NOT THE TONGUE! Cheesy And that's a lovely photo of the eye-face. It really shows off the moustache(s) and upper tusks.

I'm glad you guys like Mack! I had to rework his head like 5 times before it decided to do what I wanted. He was really fun to make and I got to needle felt for the first time. I also got to prove to my friends that Macklemore has a fox face.

I just made a post for the mutant I sent to Sylvani: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=431960.0#axzz2uwSXNTel





Her name's Michiko, and I think you can see all of her themes from those two pictures!

1. Foxes (obviously)
2. Fantasy creatures (kitsune)
3. Stuffed animals
4. Gothic
5. Asian themed things
6. Musicals (Rocky Horror-inspired underthings)
7. Roller Derby

I know from experience that flaking from a swap can mean you're having a pretty crappy time of it, so I hope she's bringing Sylvani a bit of joy.

Anyone have a couple extra felting needles? I'll trade for them!
