Lady Pretense

By Sherry O Shea | Add comment Add a comment


This summer was my biggest project "Lady Pretense". 5' 6" standing she normally sits.
She is Papier mache and chicken wire and acrylic... yes even the cigarette is Papier Mache. Lady Pretense is a bit historical 1920 vogue with some 2009 attitude: she thinks she can fit into a size 12 dress but she really wears a 16. ( her dress doesn't zip all the way hence her shawl) Her tennis shoes are comfortable so even at a gala she wears them. She smoke like a freigt train but thinks the fancy cigarette holder will hide her 10th cigarette. You don't get to see her beer she usually holds... she drank it all.
Enjoy her. Others will follow 2 are waiting for display.
