Recently someone told me that I should make a Mrs. Claus. I did make one back in the middle of March, but haven’t gotten around to posting her. She was the first female sculpture I created if you don’t include the snow people.
I haven’t made a second Mrs. Claus as I’m not sure if people are interest enough in the wife of Santa to want to purchase her. When I decided to make this figure I had thought of all the ways I could make her. She could be working in the kitchen baking ginger bread cookies. I could have her holding a cookie sheet with the cookies she’d just taken from the oven, or have her mixing the dough. Maybe I could have her sewing clothes for the dolls or making teddy bears. I had so many ideas of what she could be doing but decided I’d give her a day off from work and dress her up in her out doors clothing and send her out for a walk.
When sculpting Santa there’s this wonderful beard and everyone expects him to be plump. With Mrs. Claus there is no beard to hide the double chin or the lines around the mouth and being female she would worry about looking too plump. See the problems this causes? Females are just so complicated, aren’t we?
Since I’ve made three female figures and you’ve already met two of them it’s only fair that Mrs. Claus gets her turn at a post. If you decide to leave a comment please do not spare my feelings and be honest as to whether or not I should pursue making another Mrs.
Someone recently said something to the effect that my figures look something like me. Let me make something very clear. I look nothing like this. Really. I look terrible in red.
If you compare a profile photo of Mrs. Claus to Santa you will see they have the same physique.
Does this dress make my hips look wide? I just had to say that. Sorry.
Here are all three of my little ladies. I know their colors don't work well together and for some reason the perspective is skewed.
Now that you've had a chance to see what a Mrs. Claus would look like, would you make another? Let me know and like I said, be honest.
Thanks for stopping by.
