So Circus Posterus is on Instagram now, in case you missed the memo, and what better way to incite irrational excitement amongst the fans than debut with some insanely beautiful teasers of pieces for Monsters & Misfits II? I swear Kathie does this to us on purpose. Anyway, let’s have a look. Above: an aproned Elizabeth whose gloves admittedly have me curious, along with the fact that she seems abnormally tall (maybe this teaser will jog your memory?). Really loving the aged treatment on this one, as well. In behind we have an encrusted masked Lizzie — scroll down a bit …
Ah, there we are. Anyone else still aching for the production release of the Masked Elizabeth? I know, such a beaut. This particular disguised crusader is a Lizzie and she’s rockin’ some serious rocks. (And bling!) The encrusted look is really starting to grow on me; I’m a fan of the white gems, which we’ll see more of in a bit. Oh, and the bunny plush is just for show — a gift from a fellow CP boardie. Pretty, ain’t it? Seems Lizzie has found a sidekick!
Ok, everyone back off: I call dibs on this one. This is a custom Bear Hood Lizzie, complete with lolli and all kinds of wicked, hand-sculpted elements. Love the hands, the zipper mouth, the hat … and that empty gaze. Ho boy. Just lovely.
Here be the aforementioned white gem bedazzled lady. This one is still a work in progress so no full reveals yet, but she’s interesting: kind of a marionette vibe going on here with two slits running down the sides of her mouth. And a wicked wooden cart. Word has it she’ll also be decked out with her own Brandt Peters skeleton pit crew (they’re on lunch break).
And last, but certainly not least … ladies and gentlemen: new Kumas are coming!!
More info to come! Monsters & Misfits II opens April 13th at the Kusakabe Folk Museum in Takayama, Japan.
