YildiZsiZ Gecelerin Perisi / Fairy of the Starless Nights

uZunca bir suredir cam boncuk kullanarak goZ yapmayi denemek istiyordum. haftalar once deneyebildim. ilk denemede kullandigim boncuklar akrilik gibi bir seymis sanirim, firinda catladilar. ama ikinci denemede basariya ulastim. bu hanimefendinin bu kadar gecikmesi de bir turlu kostumunu yapamamis olmamdan kaynaklandi. bir de araya baska isler de girince, bahanem de haZir oldu boylece..
velhasil sonunda bitti..

i've been wanting to use glass beads for eyes for a long time. finally a few weeks ago i had a chance to give that a try. my first attempt was a failure, the beads i used were not glass. i guess they were made of an acrylic based material, so they cracked in the oven. but i succeeded in the second one, with real glass beads. and why this lasy waited so long -for weeks? well, i just couldn't find the time or encouragement (you name it) to make her outfit. also some other stuff got in the way..
so. anyway, here she is.teknik detay icin yine pasaj yaZimi kopyalayip yapistiriyorum.

"Gece kadar karanlik, karanlik kadar affedici..

Bu oZel hanim polimer kil ve bir miktar epoksi macunu kullanilarak yapildi, akrilik boyalarla boyandi ve mat akrilik vernikle kaplandi. GoZleri icin koyu mor (siyaha yakin) cam boncuklar, saci icin de gercek yun kullanildi. Kostumu, cesitli tuller, danteller, saten kurdeleler ve kece kullanilarak yapildi. Kumaslarin bir kismi kristaller ve dilksiZ boncuklarla suslendi. Mor kadifeden yapilan korsesinde de gumus tel kirma malZemesi kullanildi.

Ayrica, icinde tel iskelet olan bu hanim, omuZlarindan, dirseklerinden, belinden, kalcasindan, diZlerinden ve ayak bileklerinden hareket edebiliyor, kendi basina ayakta ve oturur sekilde durabiliyor.

Kendilerinin boyu 32 cm.

Tamamen el yapimi olan bu kukla, nev-i sahsina munhasir olup, bir kopyasi daha yapilmayacaktir.

not: oyuncak amacli yapilmamistir ve kucuk cocuklar icin uygun degildir."

and once again, i'm copy-pasting the etsy info for technical and other details.

"She's just dark as night and forgiving as the dark.

This exquisite lady is made of polymer clays and a bit of epoxy putty (completely hand-sculpted without any help of molds), painted with acrylics and coated with matte acrylic varnish. Dark purple (almost black) glass beads were used for her eyes and mohair for the hair.
Vintage and new tulles, laces, silk ribbons and some felt were used for her many-layered costume. Some crystal-like beads and micro beads were applied to some of the fabrics. She has a dark purple corduroy corset with silver cording.

Also, she has a wire construction inside which makes her completely pose-able. She is bendable from her shoulders, elbows, waist, hips, knees and ankles.

She measures 12 1/2" (32 cm) tall and she can sit and stand on her own.

She's completely handmade and a true OOAK (one of a kind) which will not be reproduced again.


note: she's not intended to be a toy and not suitable for small children."
sonuc olarak, kendilerine suradaki etsy sayfasindan ya da buradaki pasaj sayfasindan ulasabilirsiniZ. ozlem@ozlemakin.com'a atacaginiZ bir mail ile de 185 tl'lik fiyatiyla evlat edinebilirsiniZ kendisini.

duzeltme: hmm, korkunc bir hiZla satildi. cek cumhuriyeti'ne dogru yola cikmaya haZirlanmakta artik hanimefendi.


and she's available here on etsy and here on pasaj, waiting to be adopted.

edit: wow, that was a fast one. she's now sold and getting ready to go to cZech republic.

stop-motion kukla siparisi / custom order for a stop-motion puppet

efenim, stop-motion testlerinde kullanilmak uZere yapmis oldugum basit ve temel bir kukla kendileri. ayrica ilk stop-motion kukla siparisim oldugu icin de ayrica oZel bir oneme sahip.
istenen, sadece animasyon testlerini yapabilmek ve biraZ da deneyim kaZanmak amaciyla kullanilmak uZere, cok detayi olmayan basit bir kuklaydi.

this one is a basic puppet i've made upon a custom order to be used in stop-motion tests. and since it's my first stop-motion puppet for a custom order, it's a bit more special than others.
the aim of the order was to have a simple yet appropriate puppet to be able to gain some experience on working with puppets and do some animation tests.

kukla bittikten sonra ben de uygunlugunu ve hareket kapasitesini test etmek ve sahibine gostermek maksadiyla iki test cektim. iki cift goZkapagina (acik ve kapali) ve 3 farkli agiZa (kapali, acik, gulumseyen) sahip olan bu kuklacigin goZleri de disardan bir igne yardimiya hareket ettirilebiliyor. testlerin ilkinde goZkapaklari ve agiZlari da denedim. ikincisinde ise daha cok beden animasyonuna yogunlasip ekstralarini hic kullanmadim.
dedigim gibi, cok basit, sadece nasil hareket edebildigini vs. gormek icin yapmis oldugum icin bilgisayarin kamerasini kullanarak cektigim cok temel iki test oldu bunlar. o yuZden isik degisimleri ve oZellikle ilk testteki arka plan oynamasini maZur gorun..

after the puppet was ready, i shot two animation tests to be sure that the puppet was suitable for animating. he has two pairs of eyelids (one pair of closed, and one pair of open) and three different mouths (closed, open, smiling). and his eyeballs can be controlled with a pin, from outside (obviously). i used those features in the first test. and in the second one, i focused on the general body animation so i didn't use any of the mouths or eyelids whatsoever.
as i said before, these were the tests i've done just to see how he moves, etc. with my computer's in-built webcam. so, please excuse the flickering (caused by the light changes) and especially the moving background in the first one.
