Hey there everyone! And THERE’S a post title that could probably use a little explanation… Have I perhaps switched up in the last week, and moved on to making just cats and cat accessories?
Funny you should ask, actually, because it turns out that the Beasties I featured in last week’s post and the post from the week before are both very much “cat people”. Some of you might even have picked up on that fact already…
So it only seems right and proper that these Beasties should get a feline friend of their own.
Awwww, look how friendly she is! See if she’ll climb up on this pincushion so we can get a closer look.
Sweet! But wait… Do I hear more meowing? Does that mean…
Yes, our first cat has brought along some friends!
And it looks like they ALL want cuddles.
Each Beastie Kitty is modelled after a regular-size cat owned by one of the two sisters I Beastified for this recent BIG project. I used 100% wool roving on a wire frame for their bodies, and various shades of green beads to give their eyes that brilliant feline glow.
And just look how fearless they are! None of them had any problems stepping up onto my giant human hand to investigate.
This is Soy, who belongs to the elder sister, while Zeus…
… And Prince…
… Are both looked after by the younger sister.
As you can probably tell, photographing a Beastie black cat is just as impossible as photographing one of the regular-sized ones!
Well, now that we’ve met everybody, it’s time to round them up…
… So they can head off to their new home!
Thanks again to Miri for this awesome project… And the Beastie Pet Extravaganza doesn’t end here! Recently I’ve had lots of people asking if I can extend the Beastification of their friends and family members to include their beloved pets, so we’re going to meet some more of those miniature critters next time.
See you then!
