Whybe, the fluttering dream.
A new girl has now arrived! I know that since I posted her prototype, many of you and I am very grateful for that love, waited for Whybe to be available. This is due to this demand that I open her preorder now, before I have finished the face ups; but no worries, the face ups pictures wil be added in a very few days and the face up option will of course be available as usual :)
EDIT : Face ups posted here now :)
As many of you know, for my birthday, I ended up again at the ER due to my auto immune disease and its consequences. Just the day Cheryl Simokat aka Nimoy and Mr B were coming home to celebrate with us... That was NOT fun at all. While I was in quite an excrutiating pain, I got overly annoyed for the doctors wouldn't let Seok come with me, he was waiting outside and pretty mad too. I had the intense feeling of wasting my time stuck to this bed and and tied to the multiple drips.. But I knew I couldn't get up and just grab Seok's hand to leave. My will and desire to leave led me to imagine Whybe... I realized that the only thing that could fly away from that bed was my mind; and I did. I daydreamed... Then whybe came to my mind.
After I got released from the room to go have tests, Seok as usual lifted me and carried me in a way only him can do. I can't describe it but he has a very special way to carry me in his arms and I got that feeling to fly. At this moment I decided to sculpt Whybe.
Whybe represents the one last hope we can have and the relief we can all find in the most dreadful moments of our lives. she's that happiness we all have ahead during the dark hours. She's the power of overcoming that we all have within ourselves. She's the answer to when you wonder why are you existing. She's the Why of my Be.
The escape of the mind that can save us all.
I am born in Spring so she has butterfly wings ears to symbolize the imagination power, and she's Asian for my Seok is a Japanese Samurai.
After all, the Whybe charm worked beyond my expectations, as this evening we all gathered at our place and celebrated my Birthday with my dearest friends who crossed the world to come see me with a delightful dinner cooked by my Chef Seok. :)
Whybe comes in Lagoona Blue, Warm Chocolate, Celadon Green and Pink Petal.
Whybe takes 16mm eyes. Her wig size is 9/10. And she is 26 cm tall. As you can see in her Gallery, to get a human version of Whybe is very simple : juste taking off the ears and putting a wig one and voila!
The price for a blank Whybe is 495$ and the price for a face up is 85$ as she has a really big head but most of all, the butterfly wings ears require a lot of work to be painted.
As you can see in her gallery, all the details of her butterfly wings ears are perfectly restored by the casting and they are held by a double magnet concept which makes her easy to transport, but also having movable ears!
Whyble the fluttering dream will come with her personalized CircusKane bag, and a free pair of eyes.
You can also choose my face up as an option. Be quick though for I cannot paint more than 40 face ups per preorder as I am a one woman circus :)
But I am also extremely lucky to have amazing artist friend who proposed her services to all of my collectors who want a handmade face up.
