In a Gallery Far, Far, Away...

As promised, here the are. My pieces for the Stitch Wars show at Bear and Bird Gallery in Lauderhill, FL. I had so much fun making Bossk the Bounty Hunter, a Tuskan Raider (Sand Person), and Lando Calrissian. These will be available for sale online as well as in person at the gallery starting Friday, July 18th.





I tried to choose characters that weren't as "popular" to hopefully avoid too many repeats at the show, but I just couldn't resist trying my hand at a version of Lando. :D They were a lot of work, which I didn't anticipate for some of the more "simple" character designs. I could have gone on for weeks making characters after I got started, there are just so many amazing costumes and creatures in the Star Wars universe. It was probably a good thing that I had other deadlines looming, which stopped me from going Star Wars crazy. :)




I actually tea-dyed the linen I used for the Sand Person's cloak- I wanted it to look sandy/dirty. Lando's cloak took me the better part of a day to figure out- not being in the habit of sewing clothing. On Bossk I spent a bit of time making all the thermal detonators that he has conveniently strapped around his legs.
I really had a ton of fun photographing these guys, so for more pics, head on over to my flickr page.

ALSO: DON'T FORGET TO CHECK OUT THE OTHER MEMBERS OF THE PLUSH TEAM'S CREATIONS FOR THE SHOW here.

Leeanna, these are just fantastic!!!!! They are all so awesome, and totally capture each character/personality (especially Lando!), yet stay within your unique style. :) You rock! :)
