AN ORANGUTAN WALKS INTO A DOCTOR’S OFFICE ….. Veterinary staff members of the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme center conducts medical examinations on a 14-year-old male orangutan found with air gun metal pellets embedded in his body in Sibolangit district in northern Sumatra island. The orangutan was rescued by Indonesia’s ministry of forestry personnel and Orangutan Information Center on April 15, 2014 in nearby Langkat district in a small patch of forest and agricultural plantation. The center has cared for over 280 orangutans rescued from palm oil plantations, poachers and pet owners and over 200 have been reintroduced in the wilds. The critically-endangered primates population are dwindling rapidly due to poaching and rapid destruction of their forest habitat that is being converted into palm oil plantation.

Three of the four pieces of my cloak and a preview of the finished product
and my messy apartment in the background oh sweet lord and lady. The entire thing is not yet complete (and, as you can see, I definitely have some ironing to do), but it is well on its way! The full wingspan is enough to brush the floor, hence why I have my arms out slightly.
For the curious, the plastic sheeting is down so that the Fray Block does not soak into the carpet. It’s about the consistency of water and makes a huge mess, but it seems to do its job of holding rough edges together fairly well.
I was heavily inspired by the fabulous and incredible Melita Curphy, aka Miss Monster, who made a couple of wing cloaks once upon a time. Mine will not be nearly as detailed as hers; she is much better at paints than I could ever hope to be.
OMG. You have GOT to come by my booth at FW and show me this gorgeous thing in person. Pleeeeease?
Don’t you worry, I will definitely come see you! :D
(Did I mention my girlfriend is also making a bird cloak? She’s going to be an American Goldfinch~)
This just keeps getting better. I’m really excited to see these!
Jon was pretty sick despite multiple rounds of multiple antibiotics—he’s always been a bit on the sickly side, & now that he’s 2, it was getting much worse. I thought he wasn’t going to make it, he had lost a ton of weight & was very lethargic, but knock on wood, he’s doing a little better now after a couple of weeks of & getting huge portions. It’s frustratingly difficult to get him focused on eating, he has a tendency to zone out mentally & want to go hang out with his cagemates (who are fed separately so as to not steal food from him), but he is definitely better than he was & is starting to be active again!
