Caviara the Catfish

Caviara fancies herself a catfish with her mermaid like costume and love of all things fish!

 

 

She's a calico cat created in three different colors of German mohair: rusty red, milky white and a lemony tan, with a long deep brown wig.  Her watery green safety lock eyes are framed by long black eyelashes, her nose is hand-sculpted Fimo with pink embroidery floss lips and her whiskers are blue wire.  Ultrasuede cream paw pads show off her beautiful multi-tone embroidery floss "claws".  Entirely wired and jointed, Caviara stands about 14 inches.  She's stuffed with polyester fiberfil.

Of course she has a belly-button ring with a silvery fish skeleton, and her tail has a wee piercing: an anchor!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As a catfish, Caviara's costume begins with a black fish net with seashells at her neck, breasts and scattered over her hips. A skirt of many textured and colored green and blue ribbons includes some seaweed branches. Her waist-cincher is a multitude of green beads. An armband of shells and glittering purple beads matches her paper maché crown of shimmering purples, blues and greens.

Here's an image of Caviara before she put on her costume.

 

She has two hand-embroidered tattoos: a multi-colored fish (above, on the back of her calf) and a smiling orange fish skeleton (below, on the inside of her wrist and forearm). 

Look closely and you'll see the tiny fins sprouting on Caviara's fore-arms! She really is becoming a catfish!

While Caviara is meant to be played with, she is not a toy and is not intended for children.
