HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!*grin*
I am back!!*smiles*
We had a wonderful Christmas and I am still enjoying the company of my sis and her children however , my hands can never stay still. I confess I have been working more than any other time.
I don't even know if *work* is the right word.... I love to make *things* so very much is hard to feel that what I do is called work.*grin*
I am in the midst of marionettes making, miniature work, and FINALLY I have a wood stove installed on my main shop so the final molds for Patitadolls can be made.( that will be coming up next)
I plan to weekly post my progress.Although I have few other characters ready , I choose the witch to do my first post because she is one of my favorites.*grin*
Costuming is a lot a fun but sometimes stressful because I not always have the right vision.
When I was thinking of the witch , I want to create something different than the black-dark-moody costume seen at most plays.
I figured , if the witch is approaching snow white she should have a combination of a poor woody lady and somehow a fear looking as well.
I think this is it. I am always afraid how the young children will react too but I think she will be fine.
I will finish all the costuming before I start the stringing each marionette. I already know that when i string the witch I will let her have a permanent curved back.I think that will give her a nice characteristic, don't you agree?
