This "Fairy Kitten" figurine is a calico cat with attached antennae and wings made from papier mache. It's based on a "lolcats" photograph from the "I Can Has Cheezburger" web site that I like. I made it as a Mother's Day gift.


Materials:
Newsprint, tissue paper, white glue, a wire twist tie (antennae only), and acrylic paint.

Dimensions:
5.1 cm (2.0") x 5.3 cm (2.1") [widest point x highest point]

Time:
One day: May 11, 2014.






This is the photograph, from I Can Has Cheezburger, that I based my model upon.

Well doggonnit. I wish I could translate Europe measurements easily. Stupid American here.
But your cat is very cute! And I love calico cats! Nice job of capturing it from your inspiration piece.
I'm sure Mom loved her gift that was made with love  Grin

I'm a stupid American too.  Converting centimeters to inches is easy, you just divide by 2.54.  I always give my dimensions in both formats, so that people from different countries can grasp the scale, but I always use the metric system when I'm making something (using a numerical system, based on 10s, is infinitely easier than messing with fractions).

I recognized it from the lolpic from the thumbnail, good job!

Although, my preferred caption is "OMG, I haz doddlebobbers!"
