Time for an update on Winter Salon III from two fabulous ladies we’ve covered earlier this month.

AlfieWe showed the early stages of a jackalope sculpt by Carisa Swensonand it seems like we have been waiting for the finished pieces as long as we have been waiting for Santa to come down ye ol’ chimney. Wait no longer, because Alfie is here! Totally dressed for a Christmas sweater party or for a shindig at the Griswolds, Alfie the Jackalope has his holiday game face on, and is all about snatching the gingerbread cookies. Santa better watch his back because there may be no cookies left come Christmas Eve!  Fabulous job, Carisa.

Alfie2Next up is a quadruple showing from Megan Baehr aka Nonesuch Garden. We showcased Megan hard at work in a felt wonderland creating centaurs for the show, but little did we know she threw us a curveball with her creative mind. Megan went outside the box for holiday centaurs.
wintercentaursMegan didn’t just create holiday plush centaurs we know from classic mythology and Harry Potter, but she also made a Deertaur and Unicenta with deer antlers and a unicorn horn. This string of ponies consist of Nightmare and Ginger the centaurs, Lolly the Unicenta, and Elwood the Deertaur. We can tell that Megan had a blast making these, and now everyone else can see when the show opens this Friday at Stranger Factory.

Megan Baehr aka Nonesuch Garden is still rolling along full speed after her Halloween Skelve sold out a few weeks ago. Now with her sights set on Winter Salon III, she has a herd of plush ideas in store for us.
Cent progressMegan is hard at work creating a multitude of her favorite mythical creature, the centaur, for the show. As you can see, the color palette is ready, which leaves the arduous task of constructing all these one of a kind liminal beings.

If you aren’t familiar with a centaur, they are creatures based in Greek and Roman mythology with the head, arms, and torso of a human and the body and legs of a horse. Also, if you look to the sky on a clear night, constellation Centaurus is based on the same…well, you know.

Megan has chosen a fine specimen to recreate in her dolls. We will see more of the herd soon!


You won’t have to travel to Thessaly to get one of these amazing dolls…probably just Albuquerque or the comfort of your computer. The Circus Posterus Winter Salon opens December 6!
