A werewolf or werwolf, also known as a lycanthrope, is a mythological or folkloric human with the ability to shapeshift into a wolf or an anthropomorphic wolf-like creature, either purposely, by being bitten or scratched by another werewolf, or after being placed under a curse. This transformation is often associated with the appearance of the full moo

Grendel Spider- Chenille Stem Miniature
A chenille stem spider I built on commission for a long-time friend of mine. He's a fan of the Grendel comic series so I thought that'd make a great spider design. Measures 2" (5.08 cm) long with a legspan approximately 4" (10.16 cm).

Babadook Chenille Stem Miniature
A chenille stem miniature of The Babadook. Stands about 3" (7.62 cm) high I want to say due to that hat. I had fun replicating the charcoal rending.

Harley Quinn/Darkest Dungeon Chenille Stem Minis
Two more pipe cleaner miniatures I've built for the upcoming Scare-A-Con 2017: some character you've likely never heard of, and the Cultist Enchantress (a.k.a. Fucking Asshole) from the video game Darkest Dungeon. Both stand 2" (5.08 cm) high.

Both miniatures have chenille stem bases. The headdress on the Cultist is clear polystyrene cut into a spiky semicircle and ornamented.

I just wanted to tell you how amazed I am by your huge assortment of pipe cleaner action figures.  I recently purchased a secondhand giant pipe cleaners and plastic pieces modeling set (it's sort of like Mr. Potato Head except with pipe cleaners instead of a plastic potato) and I discovered your work after doing a search trying to identify who the manufacturer of said kit was.  I've noticed pipe cleaner figures made by other people from time-to-time over the years, but your body of work is by far the most impressive collection I've ever seen (it helps that you obviously like a lot of the same video games that I do too).  Keep it up and never lose your artistic passion!

I love your chenille dolls. I work in a similar medium (poms and felt with some chenille). Would you mind sharing your techniques?
