Day two and the paper mache has dried enough to be more stable, but is still somewhat plastic. Time to put the parts together. It makes it more difficult to costume, but I am a stickler for gesture! I told my friend Stacie yesterday my dolls are NOT poseable, only I said it in a German accent! "You vould not repose Michelangelo's David! You vill not pose my dolls!" Not that I am Michelangelo, or even close, but you get the idea.
One of my friends, after seeing pictures has said it was a lion, and I agree. I love how when something clicks in place, all the other options are closed and the creative path has veered and a destination is defining itself. Other than the fact that it will be wearing a vest and maybe a tailcoat and be holding a walking stick, a lot is still up in the air. I told Stacie, I don't usually have a complete idea of what something is going to look like when I start. I enjoy meandering and discovering!
