Moose IV

I'm still around. I've been incredibly busy on things that aren't very exciting. Check out finished Miss Moose. YAY!

Crocus are blooming, chickens are getting frisky and I'm getting the bug to do some gardening. Check out Sharon's blog. Independence days are back up and rolling for the season. I just kind of petered out last year along with the growing plants. Stay tuned for ID2010... coming soon!

Moose III

She's almost done! My portion is anyway. Matt is going to have to do some detail work but first many layers of latex need to be built up and dry on the shoes.

I helped work out fit issues mostly today. Of course we're hoping the average girl guide is taller than me! Another six inches and things look much better proportioned!

So shoes, belt and shading work on her fur and Miss Moose will be ready for her international debut.

Moose II

Well, Moose is growing nicely. I arrived to this gorgeous head already built and ready for some fine tuning, and yes, I believe that is a moose with a nose ring.

The usual working conditions were in place her at Matt's. Decapitated heads, brains and weird squishy things watching you work.

I built hooves....

Over all, she's coming together nicely. Lots of pieces to put together tomorrow. I'll be sure to take pics when we put it on me to check the fit.


I'm in Ottawa for a mascot build this week (and, well a specialist apt for my leg but that's another story.) More importantly I am here to assist in the building of THIS...

Girl Guides Canada is getting a new moose for their international camp this summer. She doesn't have a name, the contest is still going on to decide that.

I'll post pics when I get a break and get to sit.
