He is the last of the mermen for now. I am planning to get them into the etsy shop tomorrow and I will post when I do.
Another man bun-
Manly chest with a Navel battle in progress.
Ships and foliage on his arms.
Chillin’ on the porch with the coleus.
I’m having fun with hair-dos. Man bun:
Variegated thread for my fishbone embroidery, and an antique star button.
He has tropical island tattoos- palm trees and Hula dancing!
The fins are made from a batik-style fabric that has a watery look and seems perfect for a merman.
I picture this merman swimming around in tropical aqua waters. He’d be well camouflaged in that environment.
Octopus, octopodes, octopi, octopuses!
He’s got bling! Really, just a few jewels on his belt.
He has tattoos from the same toile as the last one but a different section of the fabric. Lots of sea battles to choose from.
It has been a while since I finished any dolls. Finally, I’ve got something to show. I’ve got 6 mermen in progress. Here is the first to be finished.
There will be lots of ship imagery ahead.
Well, you can’t really see his hair the the above photo but this one-
and this one-
and this one!
Here is a close-up of his embroidered belt- front-
This is the last of the mermen and today I am shipping them ALL off to Kansas City for Quilt Market. Three should be coming back home to me and then they will be available for sale ($375).
This fellow, no flowers. I focused on the dark.
No back fin.
He has a widow’s peak.
Less flowers on this fellow. And no back fin. Instead, he has more and bigger side fins.
This is the second of the choices for the “skin/tattoos”. I have no idea what any of that kanji means. This body pattern is the same as the first: small side fins and a back fin.
I tried something different for the hair.
