Mammoth Ganesh Room Guardian 2 by AnyaBoz Mammoth Ganesh Room Guardian 2 by AnyaBoz
So my boyfriend kept pushing and pushing me to make a mammoth room guardian. I rejected the idea for a long time until his birthday came up. I decided instead of a straight mammoth, I would create Ganesh as a room guardian. I used a fake flower for all the feathery spiky parts. This is the first guardian made with my colored fur. It has a very large amethyst heart.

Room Guardians are small animals that watch over one's home. The tallest, standing one foot, these friends can be easily placed on window sills, kitchen shelves, dressers, you be creative. Each guardian has a genuine rabbit fur coat and is hand made by me from the wire frame to the clay face and hands. The room guardians' arms, tails, and necks are bendable and Inside each of their chests is a unique crystal heart to give each one a different energy. These little guys have a lot of character and they love having a home to watch over.

Haha I've never heard of the Anansi Boys, but it does ring like my
name kind of. Anyway I really like your costumes. I'm actually in
the making of a full body osprink creature costume and your work
has inspired me.

Thank you so so much! I am so flattered^^

Are you aiming to make them fully posable and soft? Mine actually have
a solid frame with bendable arms, legs, and tail, but they are not as bendable
as a lot of ones you see. Do you sew or glue?
Anyway some useful tips: When putting on the fur, do not cut it all out at once, 
cut it out as you attach it to the frame.
Make sure you do not twist the wire too tight or it could break. 
Draw a line down the fur in the center to keep it straight. 
Make sure you put the fur on in a position where it can still achieve full movement
so you do not rip any fur when it is fully extended. 
Make sure your armature looks too thin than it should be because the fur adds a lot
of thickness.
