Ghosties

While I'm playing catch-up I thought I post a few pics of "Ghosties" I've
done over the last year or so.
These Dreary Darlings were "mini-ghosties" Vlad and Tallulah a petite 2 1/2"
"Little Vlad who succumbed to the vampires suck, and sister Tallulah who had a streak of bad luck! This is Myna and her changeling brother. Myna was jointed so you could pose her. The little changeling was jointed also.

This little "ghostie babe" is Molly McGlore, left on the step of the workhouse door...she waits in her carraige forever more!

And.... Melconcolia McKnight....she gave us quite a fright, when she hugged her fairy just a bit too tight!


I'll add more pics later...for some reason blogger only lets me add about 4 photos at a time. Maybe my pics are to big??
Like Roseanne Rosanna Dana said "Theres always something"!!

Oh Gail, so many people try to copy your ghosties but they all fail!
Your Ghosties are the only ones with so much "spirit" in them.
I can tell by just looking at them that they are made with so much love.
Thank you for sharing your ghosties with us.

I have just started my Miss P envelope ... am hoping to save enough pennies to treat myself to a ghostie before my 50th birthday (that's just under 10 years if you are wondering). I'm hooked - and if the pictures make me squirm with such delight, I can't even begin to imagine the pleasure of holding one in my grubby little paws. :)

more please.

Oh I am in love with your dolls! Are they plastic? sorry if thats a silly question. i am just fascinated by them!

Gail Lackey said...

Hi artgirly, no they are not plastic but had sculpted out of polymerclay over foil and a wire armature..no molds, each one is a one of a kind. Thats the wonder of polymerclay!
