This is a little gryphon I did as a costume piece several years ago, I believe in 2000. These are awful pictures, I'm afraid. Ambersky has a latex skin, filled with polyurethene foam, and covered with flocking on her cat parts and duck and pheasant feathers on her bird parts. She stays on my shoulder with rare earth magnets. I've worn her to a number of Renn Faires, and over the intervening years she's takena bit of a beating. Next time I do something as a prop I'm not using real feathers... they don't stay nice without a bird preening them full time! I have half a webpage about how I made Ambersky at http://www.geocities.com/Area51/Cavern/7733/Gryphon/Ambersky/AmberskyHome.html. I've been planning to do the other half since 2000, so I think it's unlikely I'll ever get around to it. (For one thing, I've forgotten the password...) The email address there doesn't work, either.
