at any given moment I am thinking about the fact that krycek still had to be mulder’s partner for a while before he betrayed him, like how many unsubstantiated cryptid and ufo cases did that boy get dragged along for??
vilas were the slavic version of nymphs. they were beautiful women who whenever shifted would only shift into the most beautiful creatures. often said to either live in the clouds or in the vast wilderness. powerful warriors who shook the earth when they fought.
Tiny Totem Test Take Two was a success! This little cutie has room for a “heart” (a stone, a chip of shell, or perhaps an acorn for her) up to half an inch long to be embedded in her base and sealed up inside. She’s approximately 2.5” tall, and 3” long including the tail. Her mask is cut from 3mm thick felt and embroidered, and the body is all needle felted wool—no armature. After I get a few more tests under my belt, I hope to debut these on Etsy with options for the kind of heart you’d like in each piece!
I’ve made another pansy brooch and a couple smaller violet ones. One day I’ll get around to learning how to wet felt and make a green carnation, and learn to embroider lavender. Then my queer flower set will be complete!
(The other animals are just for fun, no meaning behind them)
