Resting Nest by EssenceOfEvil
Resting Nest
Nooow time for something a wee bit different u 0 u 

this is my first finished taxidermy piece...!!!!!!!!!!! and my second attempt.. the first one was months ago and I didn't preserve the little sweetie properly, so I couldn't keep them. 
this little fellow tho!!!!!!!
lots of mistakes.. took wee babe's tail off while skinning (again gdi) and my stitching+stuffing+shaping is AWFUL, I neglected eyes half out of exhaustion and half on purpose, 'cus I liked the empty ghostie sockets, but live and learn, yknow? practice, practice, practice!

this little guy was pretty rough looking when I started..he had a leg that was bent back so harshly that it was snapped right in half and just overall looked like a tired little thing..i'm happy I could at least try and give him a nice little resting nest (which is built out of stuff i picked up at the dollar store, and was tons of fun to make - it turned out just how I wanted <3), even if he doesn't look as nice as he might have in the hands of someone with more experience ; v;  

Taxidermy is so fascinating!! and a really, really intimate thing (for me, at least??). The job kind of envelopes all my senses (touch+smell especially), so I am always crazy exhausted afterwards and need a lot of rest, even for just a little mouse. I don't mind it, though. I feel like I give them the attention they deserve that way, 'cus you should always respect what you're working with, yknow? uvu

This was a final for one of my classes before the holiday break. I kind of cheated and grabbed a WIP I had started mmonths and months ago and used it as a springboard instead of working on something from the ground up, heh ;>3>

I got accepted at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit - my admissions counselor called me yesterday to confirm and told me that my acceptance letter was on the way, and once again told me how blown away by my portfolio they were (fuckfuckfuckwow..). 

I'm going to be working toward a degree in Entertainment Arts/Game Design starting in September. 

I'm really scared, but also really hopeful. I think this is the right direction for me after 7 years of uncertainty and stasis-! Don't let anyone ever tell you you're too old to be starting school..I'll be a freshman at 25, and 30 (or close to it) by the time I graduate, I think, but waiting allowed me the time I needed to get to know myself and to feel more comfortable in this path.. Phew.. onwards to school life and crippling student loans lmao - wish me luck!!

Hoping you're all well!
