After going to see the new film, based in the Harry Potter world; Fantastic beasts and where to find them.
I decided I would try to make my own Demiguise inspired by the movie and also by descriptions written on the pottermore website.
They are described as: "peaceful, ape-like herbivores with the ability to turn invisible when threatened"
They are also said to have long silvery hair, which is used to make invisibility cloaks (poor little Demiguise, being hunted for their fur).
My first Demiguise rather resembled the one from the film, I used a curly faux fur, which I brushed out so that it was more wavy than curly. I also used the same face cast that I use on my baby sloths! I painted this to resemble more of an ape than a sloth, I then sculpted hands using polymer clay and looked at lots of images of both monkey and chimp hands for inspiration.
I ordered the same fur again but was unfortunately let down by my supplier, so I had to find something new to make my next one. After hours of hunting the internet I finally found one I like much more than the original, the new finished Demiguise look less like the original from the film and more like a fuzzy baby version, which I like a lot more ! As you can tell, I seem to love all things cute.
