Thank you, thank you, thank you to SG Merc over at SG1 Props ! I now have a beautifully crafted Kara Kesh – or ribbon device or goa’uld hand device. Pick a name!
The pictures do not do this piece justice as it’s even more impressive in person. SG Merc even put in a little control so that when I open and close my fingers the crystal will light. This thing is too cool for sure and it’s going to be the perfect addition to my Qetesh costume. 🙂
I’m not sure how long it took him to sculpt all the pieces, but you can sure see all the time, energy, research and love put into every fiber of this thing. He’s got patience that’s for sure and it’s obvious he takes pride in all his work. I can’t say enough good things about this piece or working with him!
The Qetesh costume is down to a few nit-picky things (at least I hope). I have to paint and attach some appliques/crystals, do some hand stitching, do a few touch ups to the gauntlet/bracelet (whatever you want to call it) and make a closure for the collar. I also have to pray that the fit and drape is acceptable when I try it on tonight. If you feel the ground rumble later, that’s me screaming and stomping my feet because there are some issues. lol I’m not expecting anything major but I do know I’ll have some things to fix after wearing it this weekend. I also have BDU pants to finish tonight…and sleep (hooray for sleep!)….before we head out tomorrow morning.
Also, let me introduce you to my sewing buddy Rocket. I’m his human and it was his little head you see in the picture above. Hubby pulled this little angel out of the fan belt of a truck, we heard him crying when we finished dinner one night while living near New Orleans. He’s a ton of fun andI think he’s actually part dog. He’s also with me whenever I’m working on a project and if he doesn’t get enough attention those little paws are busy knocking things off on to the floor in the sewing room until he gets some. He’s a character with a lot of personality.
