When presented with a new piece of artwork to transform into a Toy, unexpected combinations of colours and textures will be called for. It reminds me of the countless times I have sent my 8 year old back into her room to change.. because even though I love those purple and white striped pants and that orange jacket with yellow polka dots. Together? Not so much. However when it comes to kids artwork it feels so right.
Like this soft, cuddly lady. She is a Cowicorn, part cow, part unicorn. Balancing a bright yellow unicorn horn on small dainty head perched atop a slender purple neck, followed by what can only be described as a large purple cow-like body morphing into a white rump, then finishing with another pop of bright yellow for the tail. She is a little bit of everything. But definitely something unique.
When creating each Toy the first thing to do is select the materials that can help tell their story. When looking for this little Cowicorn’s beautiful wings a material was found that can only be described as luxurious. A long, soft faux fur that is tipped in bright pink and deepens to purple at the root.
So lets meet her. She is, as mentioned earlier, a Cowicorn. Her name is unknown, this is mainly due to how shy she is. The Cowicorn is a very rare creature, that spends a vast majority of its time cloud-jumping. These shy but extremely intelligent creatures know many languages but spend most of their time practising communication with their distant cousin the humble cow.
If you ever come across one of these beauties, don’t forget this one key thing. Be quiet! They spook easily around loud noises and will use those big soft wings to swiftly take them skyward and away from possible attack. You will usually glimpse their bright tail, and mistaken it for a ray of sunshine.
If, however one approaches, you may be able to stroke those gloriously soft wings. A rare treat not easily forgotten. She comes from the imagination of one very talented 7 year old (7 and 1/2 if you please!) who loves unicorns and purple.
From Awaken the Toys to you sweet Cowicorn. Welcome to the world, may your adventures take you far and wide.
