BIO

Tía Culebra – Medusa
(Aunt Snake – Medusa)

This one-of-a-kind doll was created to participate a short-film submission for this year’s Quinceañera-themed Gothtober Calendar.

Medusa was another of those characters that started out as a likely throwaway – Paprika tried to mix up a nice palette of green hues for Mama Martina and her nymph daughter Menor, but the results had a distinctly “dead reptile” look to them. We had noticed one of our dolls had tiny green tinted braids in her red hair, so we came up with the idea of a Medusa figure and painted her entirely in the unhealthy (but interesting!) shade. After the rest of the family was done, we came back and crafted a snake tail base for her from polymer clay. The first try crumbled because we made it from unconditioned clay, but on the second attempt we rolled the clay first and it worked much better, and allows her to “stand” steady on her taped and painted legs. Her tail and parts of her body were sponged through a piece of mesh fabric to simulate a scale pattern, and Paprika carefully painted her creepy red slit pupil eyes and facial textures and drew her snake mouth with Micron pigment pen.
