Introducing Steampunk Brass Mouse! by Challenger70TA Introducing Steampunk Brass Mouse! by Challenger70TA
So I figured it was time to post a picture of my little sidekick/ shoulder riding companion, "Brass Mouse." She, like all my other work, is entirely made from scratch and yes her eye's do light up thanks to the help of 5mm LEDs and an internal 9 volt battery. I love working with Brass and Aluminum, so that was the basis for her design. I took a little bit of inspiration from Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland and how the little mouse, which name escapes me, was seen riding on Johnny Depp's (The Mad Hatter) shoulder. Well in the Steampunk universe, my rodent companion is clockwork and made of brass! That's to my friends at RBC Image for the initial photo from AnachroCon 2013, which I took 1st Place in the Costume Contest BTW ;) The other two pictures so a more close up of the front and the rear. Oh and if you are wondering how she is sitting on my shoulder, that is thanks to the help of 4 VERY strong earth magnets sew into the shoulder of my vest and a metal plate mounted to her hind quarters ;)
