New RSVPzzzz

While making the bumble bee for Rana's bonnet I made two more bug party puppet guests from the leftovers. I have so much fun making these Halfland insects that I could probably keep making different ones endlessly. Good thing I keep them in a fancy specimen case nowadays. They fool some viewers into thinking they might be a little real.

The face of the bumble bee was made by rolling a small square of animal skin leather to create the feeling of a bee's eyes.

The hard shell of the yellow beetle was made from a piece of pod of some kind and his antenna were extended from their wire roots with collected (never taken) cat whiskers for their strong yet delicate taper.

Counting these two new additions, and the 5 members in the bug band, there are over 30 creatures ready to party hardy!

    1. Hi and welcome too, Sandra! YES! so much fun bringing things to life, you're right. I'm just now putting on the fur on the main character and seeing that realized after 20 years is absolutely thrilling!
