Black Cat : Red Corset



The wonderful Liz
commissioned this doll,
based on her bombay cat;
a real beauty with 
black fur and golden eyes.




A cat in a red corset?
How could I resist?




So here she is.


Corset lacing at the back.

I loved the brocade,
but it wasn't the easiest thing
to set eyelets in.


Thanks to Patti and Paula at
I now call this a
Butt Bow.


Red kinky boots!

These are modeled with
paper clay directly onto the cloth,
with a cocktail stick armature
 for the  heel and then lots of 
painting and sanding.



Posing!

She's on her way
to the UK
but I thought I'd
post the photos now.

Liz had her own wonderful dolls



like Holly Berry here.

Go and congratulate them!

  4. It perfectly screams Bombay! Those eyes! Not to mention the wonderful ears. Of course now I muist find a copy of Kinky Boots (the movie) to watch. I loved that film.
    I give this project an Attitude Plus!!! (or is it Cattitude?)

    1. Thank you, Dogs Mom! I did a lot of research first and found that there are differences between the US and UK breeds, as they emerged independently of each other. I also sculpt my heads over an egg shape, so I had to emphasis the oriental cat look. But if she reminds you of a bombay, then I'm thrilled to bits! And yes, cattitude was what I was going for!

  13. Now YOU, are a fabulous example of an artist that I see as EXTRAORDINARY....your life is certainly BEYOND the page my friend! This is wonderful! Who would have thought of a cat in a corset, for sure! And she is adorable and the choice of color for her dress and lovely boots is striking! You have certainly punctuated your art with a strong exclamation mark!

  18. Greetings Rhissanna,

    Yes, it's me, Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar! I note another Penny in the comments. Hello, another Penny :)

    You have some very talented friends. Yes, even I like the cat doll in a red Corvette, sorry, corset. As for those red kinky boots, they look very much like my human, Gary's.

    Pawsitive wishes,

    Penny :)

  19. Hi there, Penny the Jack Russell dog and renowned modest internet star. Thank you so much for joining my doll blog. I'm glad you approve of the red boots and I'm sure Gary looks absolutely fab in his. I'm sorry it's a cat doll. I think it's about time I made a dog doll. Would you like to pose for one? No pressure...

    1. Aha, I note that Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar has been telling you my supposedly well-kept secret. At least she didn't mention my pink stilettos :)

      Penny, even though modest, would be happy to pose for you. Please let us know if you still wish to proceed. No pressure on you, my friend.

      Penny's alleged human,

      Gary :)

    2. Next year, if I can make the time, I'd like to see if I can sculpt a Penny-head. She really does have a cute face! If I can make a Penny-head, I can probably make a Penny-doll.
