OK...remember a couple years back I was working on the two headed goat rug? Well that project sat around and one day Liz called and said Todd Junker wanted some stoles for his fashion show....so we each knocked one out and mine turned into a chupacabra! Cheesy Cheesy  I don't have pics of Liz's yet..but I'll post when I get them.

So we shot the stoles after the show and were so honored to have the extra fabulous and amazing Clint Catalyst model for us along with Adele Mildred!!  Clint is the most hysterical and fun guy you've ever met...his page here...


And...dun da duuun...

Heres a shot of the sheer size of the stole..LOL...not an acessorie for short people..

So, once again...no animals were harmed!  The armband has a cockroach screened on it.  It is an anti racism statement..if you were wondering.  The stole is constructed from 1/2" modeling wire.  I then duct taped the wire to the head and used about 75 old grocery bags as stuffing, wrapping them around the wire and taping them.  Yes..recycling is good....

The wire is a wonderful thing..because the stole can be shaped and clings to your body.  I bought the fur as a remnant for $1.00 a yard...I loved it because it was filthy and old.

As far as constructing the head.  I used a rug head from Van Dykes taxidermy catalogue, I believe it was a smaller bear head.  The horns are molded from magisculpt.    As far as making the head...follow my tutorial here from the rug I made...

Sorry I didn't see you post Leesa...

- What did you use to sculpt around the nose and eyes? (I've NEVER done any sculpting so any advice in this area is greatly appreciated)

I used magisculpt.

- What kind of paint did you use for the tongue?


- How did you figure out how the fur would fit on the form?  I'm planning on using tracing paper to make a pattern and then sort of fitting the fur pieces together like a puzzle.

I didn't make a pattern, I just took big chunks of fu and kinda held them over the head and cut a shape out, after I got a basic shape that looked good, I glued and trimmed away any excess...you just have to kinda go for it!

Good luck, I'd love to see how he turns out!

What a great idea...I'd be afraid my dogs would eat it. Great job!
I bought this from VanDykes also. I am beading her/him. I put fake human eyes in it. The antlers are real though. I have a few hunters in the family and deer parts abound. It'll probably take the rest of my life to finish.

This is just beautiful!!  I can't wait to see it when you're finished.
