Regal Mof by Magweno Regal Mof by Magweno
This cuddly moth doll has been based on a Regal Moth or Royal Oak Moth! He's a custom, I was sent the photos of the regal moth and broke out in a cold sweat for a minute or two at the apparent complexity of the wings… :faint: But after some careful planning and tests I managed to work it out, and I'm really pleased with how they came out too!

Custom mofs are £108 + P&P, you can email me, hello@magweno.com to order one. Please include photos of the moth you'd like!

I'm doing a project where I need to make a newsletter for deviantart and I was curious if I could use this photo. I will give credit. And, it won't be used outside school.

Omg- forgot to ask- Do you use faux fur/feathers? I just want to know for customs reasons-- ;3;

Magweno Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2014  Professional Artisan Crafter
It's fake fur and chicken feathers for the antennae - where are you based? There are other alternatives if you are in Australia.

Yeah, I'm in Australia- so chicken feathers would probably get me in trouble- XDD

Stitching some yarn or fake fur antennae isn't a problem :)

Sounds fantastic! I'd love to see what fake-fur/yarn antennae would look like- Do you have any examples?
Also- I'm just going to note you about postage to Australia~

I love those wings! They turned out very, very well, especially with orange and gray-blue right next to each other!! Airbrush and masking, I presume?
