In the shop! missmonster.myshopify.com/
So here is Gnarl. Gnarl is a Gnoll. Gnarl is a handful and demands Oreos filled with ham. Gross. Gnarl may try to eat your goldfish if you have any and will pick fights with the cat. I cannot accept any responsibility for any injuries sustained by pets or roommates!
This is a one of a kind, hand made doll. His body is faux fur stuffed with polyfill and pellets so he can sit on his own. His long mane is made from high quality synthetic hair with hand shaped wool pieces lining the sides. Gnarls face, ears and paws are cast in resin and hand painted. Glass eyes are imbedded and sculpted into the face.
Gnarl's armor is cast resin, leather, brass and faux fur... all hand crafted unique pieces. The pauldron is removable but the loincloth and gauntlet are not removable. His necklace is made from carved wood skull beads, nepalese yak bone, plus various stones and glass beads.
15" ( 38.1cm) from ear to toe tip
Please understand this doll was a very painstaking project that took a lot of time and patience to create. I'm really proud of this one.

Couldnt resist this one.
Buy a house, build a large studio space in the back... complete with a whole room devoted to shipping/packing orders.
Donate a thousand bucks to a few dozen small art businesses.
Sock away the rest, make art.

"Balrog" and "Fae" colors will only be at Dragon*Con next weekend!
I will be making 10 of each color and no more! If you want a chance at one of these colors you need to get to my booth at Dragon Con! Here's how to find me there:
"How to find me at DragonCon: My table will be in the dealer's room that is DOWNSTAIRS in the International Hall room with the giant glass doors/windows. Not the Artists Alley ( wrong hotel) and not in the two Exhibitor rooms that are across from each other. This dealer's room is pretty much at the back of the hotel ( or the front, depending on your perspective), go all the way down the escalators. See a room with an all glass front and a ton of tables in it? Bam! I'm in there... look for my banner. I'm bringing art, dolls, shirts, barrettes and all kinds of stuff.
I will be under the "Ruth Thompson's Tarnished Images" block of tables in the dealers room listing. "
I will be at the con table friday- monday during dealers hours!

This is Simon! He's a gryphon-goblin! He needs a home.
This art doll is completely hand made, hand sewn, hand painted. One of a kind.
-Resin face, claws and ears. Glass eyes. Bottom foot pads are felt.
-Silicon chest plate, paw pads and back barbs. Flexible and soft but durable so he can still be cuddled.
- Faux fur soft body. Arms, legs and butt have been filled with plastic pellets for flexibility but can still sit on his own without leaning. He can stand with support. Chest is stuffed with soft poly fill. Floppy style doll.
- 11"/ 27.9cm from toes to ear tips. 1.3 lbs, a solid dude!
While this doll is made to have some durability and can be handled, it is not rated for young children and is not a toy. This is a mixed media art piece hand made by an individual... please treat it well to avoid scuffs and damage.

So im switching my online shops! Instead of using bigcartel im moving here: http://missmonster.myshopify.com/
So far im REALLY happy. Things have gotten a bit big as far as order numbers and shopify lets me be far more organized... and more importantly is is a little more intuitive for customers. I'm hoping this will lead to smoother orders, less mistakes and far more customer satisfaction. That will lead to my stress levels drastically lowering which lord knows i desperately need.. ;P Also hoping this will free up a lot of my time since i wont have to answer as many shop emails and shipping may go a little faster.
Right now it's a little bit confusing since not all the items show on the front page but im working on that. For now you can just use the links at the top to navigate categories and see all the stuff.
I'm thrilled with it so far. Sure, it's pricier but if it saves me $20 a week in time and grief than it's worth it. Plus it looks so cool and ~official~ haha....
Hey and look I made werewolf earrings!
And tomorrow? Glow In The Dark Tentacle Panties are coming out. YEP!!

I am a terrible livejournaler. I won't give up on you yet LJ....
I made some glass eye earrings!
I'm working on larger sizes as well as regular earring post versions...AND graphic art styled ones. Fun!
I also sculpted this dude and made a bunch of polyurethane copies!
Hoping they will do well at conventions once people can see them close up and personal.
Both can be found in the shop!
