Here she is, Folks!!!! For the most part she is finished!!!! These pics don't really show that she has a greyish tone to her skin and a small amount of crackle-ing here and there.
I have to fix the handle to the birdcage. I have to adjust her bionic arm so that all the parts and pieces are hanging just so. Her arm consists of a paint can opener that cost my father 7cents once upon a long ago time, a mascara brush and two suitcase keys. A thimble covers up her neck stump. (Creepy saying that!)
I just painted the wagon handle. I don't like the ribbons in the back but they are there to hide a plastic part on the back of the compass. Too me the ribbon is a step too much. Don't likey.
What do you think of her head??? I'm pretty happy with everything- the hair, her eyes and her expression.
Check out her boot. Its made with wire mesh armature and then I sculpted a 'shoe' over it. Didn't know I was a footwear designer, did you?
You are probably wondering what the heck is going on with the base she's standing on. Well, if you remember her story its based on (me) a lady who is so busy trying to be all and do all but life has gotten away from her especially since she lost her head. She remains undaunted and continues on with her life because- well, what else is she to do???
So with a few household items, safety pins, screws she puts herself together. She even manages to remain somewhat fashionable.
I think we have all felt like Headless Amy at some point or another. For me it seems like forever now that I have just forged forward simply ignoring the obstacles in my way. I've paid the price- just like Amy. And, I like to think once in awhile I can pull together the small miracle of fashionable style.
So that's Amy. Headless Amy. A few minor adjustments and she'll be done! Hope you like her!
