I've been working on carving the hands and feet, which is time consuming. Periodically, I've switched over to painting the head and sculpting/embellishing the mask. She has taken on a bird-like quality which I love, and I will be adding feathers to her gown as well. Her mask is removable right now, but I will probably glue it down when it is done. I've considered putting magnets on it so she can remove it during performance, but I'm not sure yet...
Still working on the marionette, alls thats left is the hands and feet....and painting...and costuming...I've also gotten a couple of paintings done in the last few days. One was for Juli on our anniversary (oct. 12), a quick little painting done from one of our wedding photos. The second features Morgus the Magnificent, a local, late-night, B movie horror film host from my childhood. He had a wonderfully sick and absurd sense of humor, and showed the greatest bad films ever produced.
