Spooky Time Spirit

Normally on Friday I would be doing a Friday Favorite, featuring a fellow artist.  But today I've decided to finish off the 'armature line up', before and after.  There is one more Spook waiting to have his day.

Spooky Time Spirit is another piece I did a version of last year, but it sold before I had a chance to feature it on the blog.  He was one of my more unusual creations, so I thought the idea deserved another go.

Talk about hard to photograph!!  This pale fellow is extremely difficult.  I think I might try retaking his pictures on a black background and see how that works. 
Anyway...about the Spirit...
He's dressed in a white shirt and grey pants with matching striped stockings. I've used various brads and studs for buttons, belt buckle and shoe buckles.  He's flesh is a pearly grey mix.
This picture is a little more clear.  It shows the details of his spooky face, which is accented with paint, and his wild shock of wool roving hair.  I used a shimmery sheer fabric  and shredded it for his ethereal appearance, and tied bits of silver organza ribbon around his neck.  It is accented with a Swarovski crystal.
He is carrying a chain with little charms attached:  a spider, a crystal beaded charm, and a watch face.  Spirits do like to rattle their chains, right?
He hasn't been listed in my etsy shop yet, but he should arrive in the coming days.  I might do another photo shoot first....
Also, a reminder that today is the last day to grab up one of the witches I have listed on Pfatt Marketplace.  The site will update tomorrow. 
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! 


  1. Okay we both know sometimes I'm brain dead but I do NOT remember this one. It's very very cool. It sold so quickly which says it all! Very creepy in a super cool way.I think he may need a family of similar critters.

    1. Don't know how you missed him! Maybe I forgot to send you those pictures....

  2. I've been enjoying your before and after line-up, all great and this one is no exception!

    1. It's been fun to show the before stage and then the finished work. I'm glad you've enjoyed it!

  3. This guy could be straight out of a creepy, Halloween'ish movie!
    I'm curious to know how things are going over in your Etsy shop. I'd be super surprised to learn that these adorable creatures aren't being snatched up immediately. I wish I could have one of everything you make!

    1. I haven't gotten all of these new pieces listed in my shop yet. I'm working on that a little bit at a time.
