Qaw the Raven
This is not my costume! I am posting this because I had a hand in making it, and I had the honor of getting some photos of the completed thing. This year at RMFC I took a real camera with me for the first time to a con. I’m super glad I did, because Qaw was there!! I made the mask and claws for this on commission. The mask was done on a modified base by Crystumes. I sculpted on her crow base to make a raven’s beak, and added faux fur, hand-set about eleventy billion feathers, and hand-set an equal number of boar bristles for the rictal bristles on the beak. I was so super excited to see it in action. It’s delightful to see something I worked on, hopping around!
Qaw stopped by my dealer’s table and attempted to steal the plush gryphon Shard owned by my table-mate Jess Owen (see second to last photo), then kindly allowed me to follow it around for a few impromptu photos! I didn’t have any hand in making the rest of the costume, including the really neat vest and pants. All photos are mine, except for the last one, when I bumped into Qaw while wearing Kinglet, and my husband was able to get a photo.
The very awesome sloth in these photos is Tica. I traced down her FA gallery by searching her name: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/tica
Sometimes I like to imagine dinosaur movies if dinosaurs had fat puffy bird bodies.
RENEGADE: THROW CAINS AT PPL
I ended up having to rush the other drawings in the series I’M SO ASHAMED OF MYSELF but at least the drawing of the kinnari sssort of turned out okay. I had to rush the top half though so that explains the like. Everything haha. I do want to get back into drawing Thai art again though so this was a good re-entry.
*edit Oh year I totally forgot to add the description:
In Hindu and Buddhist traditions, Kinnari is the name for female Kinnara. Southeast Asian mythology depicts them as graceful half human, half swan people. The most well known Kinnari is Manohara, whose tale in related in the Buddhist Jātakas. Manohara was a princess who was captured by a hunter while bathing in the human realm. She was given to Prince Sudhana, with whom she fell in love. The story goes that when Prince Sudhana left for battle, the city people spread the rumour that she would cause bad luck and so she flew back to her own kingdom, leaving a ring for her prince to follow her. After Prince Sudhana completed a number of gruelling trials, they were reunited and lived happily ever after, even though the Prince was a swanfucker.
