The latest finger puppet is a mosquito.
Cherry Stains is built on the model of Cherry Ames, a fictional character who has many adventures -- from being a student nurse to a flight nurse to an island nurse to a jungle nurse (!).
Cherry Stains has no such ambitions. She'll 'stick' close to home (har-har), unless she travels to spread malaria. That could happen.
Above: A little Halloween action for you!
Blood puddles/droplets are stained glass window paint that I blorbed onto a hard piece of plastic, allowed to dry, then peeled off. I store them sandwiched in between wax paper, so they don't get stuck to each other forever.
Cherry's eyes are glow-in-the-dark, so she can find you anywhere for a 'donation'.
Above, left: Now you can see the reason for crafting the lovely chunk of arm & arm hair. Whenever I see photos of mosquitoes, it's always with a backdrop of EXTREME CLOSE-UPS of arm hair. I wanted to emulate this, and wasn't sure if this was funny or just strange. I took a risk.
