You're just so amazing! I love this so damn much! She also remindes me on lady Aprella from Emilie Autumn's bloody crumpets!

This one is so pretty! It kind of reminds me of Aprella, because of the clothing. Lovely work, very nice :)

Your work blows me away once again!

I must ask a nosy question. Feel free to disregard it but...

I look at your ebay links, knowing I have no hope of buying one of your statues, but i do wonder. How much to you spend in materials for these little beauties? Anything close to what you make on them?

:iconwingdthing:
wingdthing Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2009  Professional Traditional Artist
Thank you! Questions are always welcome, and that is a good one. My material cost for each piece is really low. But.....yes, there is a but. I have a massive selection of "materials" that is quite expensive. It is made up of things I have accumulated over time, but I do put a lot of money back into what I do. When I see something I love I grab it, even if I have no idea what to do with it. So in that respect it can be expensive. You can get into polymer sculpting without a lot of money, but if you like it you will end up spending alot as you go along.
Hope this is helpful to you.

It is helpful.

I make things myself, not sculpture, but I can certainly understand buying something you have no plans for yet. It's just something you love that you know you will find a use for somehow.

Thanks for answering!

Wow! This outfit reminds me very, very, VERY much of Aprella, one of Emilie Autumn's bloody crumpets(have you heard of them?)! I went to a concert in April, and she wore an outfit that looked almost exactly like this one!! :D It looked like this:
