This is Mae Trix. She’s a phenomenon. *end obligatory Shock Treatment reference*
A few things about Mae:
* She is slightly over 4ft tall, meant to be around 2/3 actual size — the chairs she’s sitting in are human-sized. She is strung with 3/8th inch elastic and is fully pose-able. When sitting upright as she is shown here, her torso is self-supporting.
* She is made mostly of yarn and stuffing, from a crochet pattern entirely of my design (that I hope to format nicely and sell someday). She also contains elastic stringing as mentioned, pipe insulation wrapped in duct tape (to make bones/feet), plastic canvas, coat hooks (as the internal connections for the stringing), and wire in her hands and fingers.
* She weighs around 8-10 pounds. Her torso has a realistic human range of movement in all directions, with internal rib cage and upper/lower abdominal masses, along with a pipe insulation “spine”. All areas with stuffing have at least two layers of crochet work, to prevent the stuffing from ever becoming visible. The most amount of layers would probably be in her back, where in places she has up to 7 layers of crochet over internal stuffing.
* Her hair and face are removable (currently attached via bobby pins) to allow for changes of expression and hairstyle.
* The bra and undies in the beanbag picture are new; I created them this weekend as a commission. When I get around to making her a set, she’ll of course want them in her favorite color — green!
