The answer to “I wonder if I can do the taller dragon without reverse sewing it” (i.e. if I have to turn those skinny limbs) is “yes, ONCE.”
Today was *supposed* to be “rest my wrists because the CT is flaring up” and instead I ended up not only rassling with turning the thing but also “I’ll just stuff the head to see if the horn bases work” ended up just-a-little-more-ing until it was done. Aaaaanyway just need to re-run the wings and do the final assembly.
I have a whole basket of goofs like this, where I neglected to cut away the lower stabilizer before stitching the wing bones.
It’s repairable, but easier to just stitch a new one for now. Someday I’ll put ‘em on Etsy or let the kid fix them; some doll maker may want them for BJD wings. (There is silver sparkle fabric as membranes, the velvet gets cut away to reveal it.)
Now that it’s Father’s Day, I can post pictures of the snap tab I was making with that hologram vinyl: Clem the Grineer, from #Warframe.
Longer neck, longer legs. Not an entirely accurate measurement behind them because of the angle (longhorn minky dragon is ~ 4.5" tall) but at least shows the difference.
That's about as big as they'll get without going to multiple hoopings, which the greater sea dragon does do (and which is why I have three failed attempts on it sitting in the failure basket now, but I learned some things from lesser sea dragon that I think will fix that).
My "warehouse" was up to three plastic shoeboxes so I upgraded to someplace with a lot more space.
This is just what's listed on Etsy right now. 'Bout to add a whole rainbow of the hatchling size (a literal 6-color rainbow, plus pastels of at least some of the other Pernese colors).
The rainbow ones will have plastic eyes instead of embroidered or appliqued ones, so that'll be something a little different.
