I'm doing a personal swap (yey!) and for it we had three themes; Lenore, Alice In Wonderland and My Neighbour Totoro. Another part of the swap was that everything had to be steampunked in some way. So here is one of them :)
First up is the soot sprite from My Neighbour Totoro and Spirited Away. Since my partner wanted a steampunk theme, I decided to give him a pair of flying goggles. Now he is ready for his time hiding away on dirigibles.
The soot sprite himself is crocheted while the goggles are made from tops and an old leather belt I cut up, the head band is a brass chain. Acrylic paints aged the lenses.
