name :: Leonidas

completed :: March 2011

size :: 10" high x 8" wide at shoulders x ~6.5" tail length

materials :: non-pill fleece, Minky, flannel, faux fur, safety eyes, embroidery floss, wire

notes :: One of those projects I cut out, tucked away in a drawer, and forgot about for a few months! This is Leonidas, who is technically in the "sprite series" but wound up with "monster" colors. That's the expression he wanted to have; think he was a bit fed up with me after taking too long. Arms are lightly posable with wire and jointed; the eyes are hand-painted with a slightly new technique. He can stand independently, though not quite as well as the littler guys (additional weight). Tail is two separate faux furs sewn together, super soft.
