The Melancholy Tale of Margaret & Her Cat

"The Colorful Furry Planet.

5 light years away from earth, there live Margaret and her cat Kolbasz Jazzie (Full name - Billie.Sidzlum.Jaqc 2nd).

Every morning, Margaret will lightly clean up her planet, remove any furry mold that bloomed over the night; after that, the whole day, she caress her cat with her hands. She loves to listen the snoring when he falls asleep on her lap.

One day, Margaret found Mr. Kolbász missing. She looked around the planet, trying to find him out. She went a few rounds, she kept finding hard; but Mr. Kolbász was nowhere to be found. As if he had just vanished in the air.

Since then, Margaret has no cat to caress. She had become too moody and have no energy to carry on her other daily routine. Little did Margaret knew, due to not using her hands, they were degenerating. Silently.

One day, Margaret's hands disappeared. 

Now, the whole planet is overflowed with colorful furry mold and Margaret, without her hands, could never clean them anymore.

~The End"

Ok, this is a pretty badly written story. XD

This kit is a kit i got during my visit to Wonderfest Summer 2012. Sculptor unknown, but I was pretty impressed with her drawings she displayed at her booth. Hence the kit.

Basically is a one piece solid resin, and well casted.

I was trying to experiment n play a little with fluorescent colors. Basically, almost everything is fluorescent colors with a bit of normal color here n there to tone things down.

Another thing I was experimenting was Gunze's masking sol. Before this, I hate masking and I suck with masking tape. Now, confirmed, I suck with masking sol too... T.T

The fun part of this project comes when I try to give the figure a meaning, or a story. Was inspired by the book Little price; with all the mini-size planets n weird people he met during his journey. as a result was trying to build something like that. A Colorful n furry planet.

For the planet, i m using those man made decorative flowers (I still puzzle anyone would think a round shape furry ball a nice decoration piece though :p). Fur balls found in stationary section in Daisho (Stationery?) The acrylic stand is donated by Jeffho :p The Story was typed using a kiddo type font. Main reason is just that it looks like Japanese writing.

Overall, it is a very fast and fun project (ok, minus the one year period I left it in dust).
