Hello Kitty WIP complete!...wait..what?!

No Space Shark update today, got one one of the girliest post you'll ever see on deck instead.

I have had another project on my table to complete with the utmost haste and importance, so others have had to wait. What is that you may ask? Well, its part of my wife's birthday present! She's a big fan of cute stuff and what is cuter than Hello Kitty! She is also a BIG Alabama football fan (season tickets, tons' o shirts, was on the spirit team when she went there for college, etc.) So what better way to give both her favorites than to combine them into one! Ladies and gentlemen I give you the Hello Kitty Alabama cheerleader mini:

I made it out of sculpey clay. I had got introduced to sculpey a few years ago when we were making christmas ornaments out of it at a friends house. I liked it so much I managed to make my groom's cake topper out of it for our wedding (I didnt make the cake, not that talented!):

The mario and princess sculpts were actually easier than this one. It would have been alot easier had I had enough scupley in the right colors for each part. I had to prime and paint parts thier respective colors and that took some time.

I am also not a sculptor in the least bit, so making this thing from scratch was kind of a pain (despite how simple it looks) but worth it.I got a cake to make tommorow when she gets home (she went with her family to the football game today) so hopefully she'll like both and be super suprised!

I promise a spaceshark update next time!


  1. Very cool dude, never having sculpted I'd say top class job. Looks incredible to me, she must love it.
