(Character Based) Reference: [link] Yeah I know.. the reference is tiny. Since I wanted to make a more human based interpretation with this, I felt that I reference image wasn't exactly 100% necessary.
I was refered to this contest by
This is based off of the mythological bird of fire/rebirth, Phoenix. I made this costume basically out of 2 bought patterns(corset and base skirt), I altered them as shown with hand sewn bead designs, ruffles, feathers(all feathers on the skirt were hand dyed), and sequins. The corset is fully boned with a busk, the beaded design took about 5 hours to complete. I made the wings from plastic canvas, clear nylon straps, and lots of feathers. The wig was cut, dyed, styled, detailed with strands of beads, and finished off with a feathery headdress(also handmade). The feathery bodice was constructed out of plastic canvas covered with feathers, and hand stung beads. I made feather tails to attach to my wrists, wig, and wings to complete the costume. The only thing that I did not make for this costume were the shoes.

This is my entry for the contest Think Pink III by JunkbyJen [link]
Digital mixed media category

This is the first image in my gallery. I saw this contest announced in a friend's gallery to raise awereness for breast cancer and celebrate JunkbyJen's 7th anniversary, cancer free, this October. I jumped at the opportunity to finally post in my gallery here, as I am very close to this cause, having been through it myself just very recently. I wanted to do something special to raise awereness and also celebrate being a survivor myself, as I was lucky to have caught it early, still intact with two little scars

Have you ever heard of Władysław and Irena Starewicz (aka Ladislas and Irene Starevitch)? Their stop-motion animated movies totally inspired me to make this doll! Seriously, puppets used in the animations (made by the Starevitches, of course) are pretty awesome and inspiring, go and check them out!
So here it is, my contest entry and also a little tribute to the great and almost forgotten animators ^^
This little guy was quite difficult to make! I used: ● Super Sculpey, acrylic paints and faux wool (for head, legs and hands) ● polar fleece and polyester filling (for belly, arms and thighs) ● plastic pipe (for sort of spine) But I'm really satisfied with how he came out

Ok this is my first entry for the Bring your vision to life contest!
My idea is that umanity must have a guide, who would be an enlightened person to show people what is the right way to live. We've a lot of example every day, in every book we read, expecially in THE BOOK, the Bible, there are a lot of legendary figures who guide people to pass throught the darkness to find the real light of the life, which can be different from person to another.
I hope my horrible english could be understandable...
