Mices,Meeces,Mousers....



Well just a quick sneak preview of what we have been working on for EBAY ...keeping fingers crossed for a Friday Listing. Not really going to say much more other than 'They are in love' ...lol! This little couple stands a mere 6 inches tall. I LOVE doing animals .... this is only our second and third mouse character, the first being the 'Dormouse' from Alice in Wonderland. I did something I never do on a doll...applied Eyelashes to the little Lady Mousie, I have not applied eyelashes since 1970 when I went out dancing and lost one of them somewhere on the dance floor, only to find in horror that it was stuck to my dates shirt sleeve ??? I swear...those things use to just 'fly off' at will.... and ALWAYS at the most inopportune times... so needless to say I was having weird 'flashbacks' when applying these 'little' suckers... my word of advice to 'Miss Mouse'...NO DANCING!!!

OK...off to finish dressed this happy little couple...

Thanks everyone for your Super Nice comments on the D.D. Award .... and Thanks for being my B.B.B. (Bestest Blog Buddies)..

Have a Wickedly Wonderful Wednesday...

Jodi

Hi Mags...

Nice to see another that likes Meeces as much as I... they are fun to sculpt in that they can at times so resemble a human...and I LOVED the movie 'Ratatouie' (sp)

Hugs,
Jodi

She is so sweet, I'd invite her at home. How they will be dressed? They are such a hansom couple.
Jodi, I thought of you in the desert. Stunning place indeed

My Gosh, You people are just crazy talented!

Judy C said...

The saying-I love you Meeces to pieces. That definitely goes for this one. I was wondering where you got to. Swimming maybe. Anyway he is super.

MiniKat said...

What sweet little faces! I just love seeing animals as dolls. I have often been tempted to have a 1:12 animal family for my dollhouses.

You're doing great with them. can't wait to see them finished! :-)

Marie S said...

Thanks for the little peek at the sweet little meece.
Ohhhhhhh so cute.

Joanna Thomas said...

I love mice critters and I know I'm going to love yours! The detail is wonderful! And I love the lashes! ;-)

Creepy_Creations said...

OMG, they are adorable!! I can't wait to see them finished!!

I loved your story about the eyelashes, it reminds me of a story my mom told me when she was younger. Her and her friend wanted to know what would get more attention blondes or big boobs. My mom's friend wore a long blond wig and my mom of course overstuffed her bra with klenex to look huge. Well when they were at a bar the friend was getting a lot of attention until my mom went off toward the bathroom when she noticed that everyone was staring and pointing at her, she was feeling pretty good until she noticed that she walked infront of a dart game and she had a dart hanging on her boob!!

Wonderful....I love humanized animals as well. Can't wait to see them finished :-)


LOL at the eyelash saga....could be worse...my friend had one of those chicken fillet things to make you boobies look bigger fall out of her bra while dancing !

Debbie said...

Oh Jodi I'm totally in love with the little Mice. The Lady one is very pretty and so cute with those eyelashes. Looking forward to seeing them finished and together.. Oh Bless. xx

Creager Studios said...

OK about the Crazy Talented part... I am afraid that it tilts towards crazy more... but I thank you kindly!!

Jodi

Creager Studios said...

Hi Judy...
OH MY...have not thought of "I love Meeces to pieces" in a very long time...I even rememember the voice...and now of course...I am walking around the house saying that over and over (in the voice) both Richard and Tess have left...LOL!
We have been nuts with this and that around here..been kayaking a few times... just laying low and keeping cool

Hugs,
Jodi

Creager Studios said...

Hi Kat...

Thanks so much...WOW...I think it would be sooo cool for you to create a 1:12th scale miniature mouse family...but it would be even more cool to create the house as mice would....thimbles for chairs, spool of thread for the table....match box chest of drawers... etc etc...what fun!!

Hugs,
Jodi

Creager Studios said...

Hi Marie...

They are certainly fun to create...I always balance my art that way...serious and focused one minute to lighthearted and fun the next... too much of any one thing makes me board out of my gourd!!
Thanks so much....
Hugs

Hi Kate and John...

So happy you are liking this little couple...actually the man and woman are both there...he is the second mouse...with the little longer nose....

Realy cute and perfetc!
Will look forward to seeing more.
The eyelashes made me laugh.
I have a really funny one about hair extensions but i'd be typing forever and a day if i did.
Basically i looked like a witch... lol. My friend Yolande and i still laugh about the evening after the day of them going in, sitting and taking them out. I was crying and she was pouring vodka down my throat. It was like removing thousands of nits and had to have my hair cut short the next day.
I only have to say hair and she laughs.
Loving your micee!!!
