I couldn't help myself...
I just couldn't help myself. That pile of hand-dyed turquoise mohair was just sitting there staring at me, begging to be turned into SOMETHING... so I did.
And that something is the gorgeous big girl you see before you. We have called her 'Umiko', which means 'child of the sea' in Japanese. Seemed appropriate considering her lovely ocean-wave-like mohair.
I tried a different shape for her eyelid sculpt this time - going for a more almond shape similar to the shape I use when sculpting lids for the rabbits we make. It gives her a lovely soft expression that I quite like.
She is available for adoption at the time of writing, but I can't guarentee for how long that will be the case :)
