Calypso - 16.5" - £115.00
Calypso is made from a beautiful wavy, semi dense, 15mm pile lilac mohair. Being a sea nymph she has a 'fish tail' and 'fins' on her shoulders, wrists, heels, lower legs and her back. These details are all handmade using machine embroidery over lengths of embroidery floss and sheer fabric sandwiched between tulle. The finished fins were then further enhanced with acrylic and fabric paint. Her paw pads are hand painted with a fish scale design using glitter fabric paint in purple shades. Her face and inner ears are also hand painted with ?camouflage? striped design in purple, pink and deep blue shades. Calypso has hand painted 'glitter' eyes with purple suedette upper eyelids and corded lower lid details. She also has long eyelashes to further enhance her femininity. Her nose and mouth are embroidered with a multi shaded embroidery floss in shades of purple and pink.
