I come bearing pictures of cute-ness! :D

I recently made a few presents for my best friend, and since she just got the package, I can post some pictures! This was a Tangled themed present that includes a crown, mask, My Little Pony, and incantation sheet music all packaged with MANY tiny origami stars. I am, of course, referring to the newer movie "Tangled", the Disney adaption of Rapunzel.

I posted some pictures over at my Deviant Art, but in case you are not over there,

~ Crown ~
This crown is made from one piece of 8 oz vegetable tanned leather. The larger stones are oversized "chandelier" crystals. All the smaller stones are rhinestones and are individually glued into place. It is as close to a replica I can get with these materials… I really did try!

~ Mask ~
The mask base is one piece of 8 oz vegetable tanned leather. It has been painted with regular and metallic acrylics in my own design. It incorporates the tower, the "sun" symbol, the boat and lanterns, and the magical flower with her long hair flowing all around. There are a few iridescent Swarovski crystals and some glitter paint to make it sparkle.

~ My Little Rapunzel ~
This delightful little pony has been rehaired with three colors of blond hair. It's as long as I can possibly make it from the ever wonderful There is even a shorter brown piece in the back (like Rapunzel in Tangled). The purple sun symbol is 3-d hand sculpted out of apoxie. The flowers are also apoxie sculpt, but on the end of straight pins. The crown base is leather with rhinestones.

~ Incantation ~
This is the actual sheet music for the healing incantation with lyrics and everything! I burned the edges, drew some flourishes, and sketched the magical flower.

All in all, I'd say it was a success! She really liked it and everything was a learning experience. I'd never made a crown and I'd never used apoxie before. I also don't draw much, so all the drawing on the sheet music was also quite new. :D

Here are all the presents set together!
