L'il Reapers hand sewn goth dolls

- by Emily J White

This week's theme: Fibre Art

If you stop and think about, can make anything out of fibre - or fiber if you prefer a less artsy spelling. You can make clothes, toys, bowls and baskets. It covers our furniture, makes out beds and more and more, it's used to insulates our homes. This week EBSQ's Art of the Day looks at fibre in art. We have practical, decorative and simply fun examples of what an artist can do when they explore their creativity using fibre.


Art: L'il Reapers hand sewn goth dolls by Artist Emily J White
Yes. Here you have it. I am officially off my rocker. Who would want one of these guys? Much less two of them? Sheesh! Anyway, I made a bunch, cuz I like them. Let me explain how they are made: Each reaper measures about 2" with a posable body. Tiny armatures were made from scraps of materials and florist wire. The hands are white beads, and the reaper head is a white plastic skull bead (I have like a billion of these suckers and never knew just what the fudge I was gonna do with them til now!) Felt was used for the little outfits and hoods. All limbs are posable, and you can even move their tiny heads arounda bit too!! They really are adorably freakish. Reapers come in a hand sewn pocket (which just happens to be reversable, how cool am I?). At this point in the listing, I would attempt to give you an idea of what to do with the particular item. However, in this case I am at a complete and total loss as to what to say. Of course you could always give them as a gift. ;) Please visit my dark art shop: zombietoes.etsy.com if you would like to adopt a pair!
