queen elisar : clay creation by colorized-happily queen elisar : clay creation by colorized-happily
FINALLY FINISHED! Please please please download for full details.

CONTEST:
Contest can be found here: [link]
Queen Elisar's dress design is here: [link]
Her facial design is here (can't find what I used earlier, but it's fifth down here): [link]
The novella, Dragon's Blood, can be found here: [link]

DETAILS:
a.k.a. what was going through my head when I shot these. may be some spoilers.
1 - view of her right side. 'nuff said.
2 - view of the front of her (with hat).
3 - view of the back of her (with hat).
4 - view of left side.
5 - view of beads on her skirt's hem.
6 - view of her torso.
7 - view of her sleeves and whatever that area on the front of her skirt is called,
8 - "valdis and queen" - this is supposed to be Valdis with Queen Elisar, despite the fact they never meet. While I was taking the first few pictures of her (with my cousin assisting), I randomly thought that my cousin must approximately be six times Elisar's size, so their size comparision would be close to Valdis and Elisar's. After hair, costume, and a bunch of makeup because my cousin's so tan, I took this. I tried editing it to give it that super cold look.
9 - "overlooking thulia" - potted plants look like lovely architecture.
10 - Elisar's hat, modeled by an elegant glue stick.
11 - once again using my math skills, I came to the conclusion that the tree in my yard was the perfect size for the one tree in the novella that are "so large that five men could barely link arms around the largest of them."
12 - just a close-up of Elisar's face (I know she's kinda scary...but I worked hard making her).
13 - "meet your new dragon" - okay, well, I know Valdis and the Queen never really meet, but like the previous Valdis pic, I thought it was a cool idea. If only I made Leif instead, because it might make more sense.

SUPPLIES:
Queen Elisar's base (arms, torso, head, eyes, eyebrows) was made out of Sculpey clay. Basically she's a mannequin. Her stand bottom is clay, but the stick part of the mannequin (if that makes sense) is made out of a chopstick thing.
Her facial features (pupils, eyeliner, lips) is hand-painted on.
Her hair is simply glued on and made out of black and white doll hair (and boy, was that difficult attaching).
Her hat's base is cardboard, then covered in fabric. Her dress is obviously made out of fabric and is attached using a combination of glue ('cause I'm lazy) and sewing. All beads are hand-sewn (which took forever) except the rhinestone on her hat and on her bust (which are just glued).

I showed my dad, and he just loved it! His face just lit up. He laughed and laughed with absolute pleasure. :nod:
He said, "That is just great! That's immortal!" Heehee, he especially liked your cousin as Valdis.

Oh, and, I was wondering if you're willing to sell me the little Queen Elisar? Because we would love to have her! I'm willing to pay shipping and all that jazz. But if you're not willing to part with her, I totally understand. :heart:

Thank you so much once again for entering!

I'm so glad! My cousin was awfully excited about being her. I basically just explained she was an "ice person" and my youngest cousin interpretted that as "ice skater," and kept saying "I wanna be an ice skater too!"

Of course! I mean, it was basically made for you guys. If you just pay the shipping, we'd send her right over. :) I'd just like to warn you that she looks a tad unfinished, since I tried to avoid sewing as much as possible. :p

And no problem! It definitely tested my abilities.
