Biewe Women Warriors at WisCon40

Biewe is the Saami goddess of the sun or the actual sun itself. For this character, she is the deity and spelled from one of the options. The pronunciation of her name - however you feel about it. In Finnish, there are a couple more syllables than actually appear: there are English (US) and several other languages on pronouncekiwi. She got her name because her hands are a shiny odd color - like liquefied vanilla fudge. Or streaming sunspots viewed through a powerful telescope. Biewe will feature in the same storyline as Akka, which, for now, is in the Stellar Repo universe.

Biewe's body is articulated: I think she's a Dragon Toy product I got in a sale lot of wounded action figures. I took off her face paint, repainted her in purple and silver. I added a purple manicure, too. Her armor is assembled from jewelry findings in my collection, including the nunchuks, which are not hardwood, but stainless steel tubing, wrapped with stainless steel wire. Her headgear is a pair of my mother's earrings. The bodysuit she's wearing has wear, and Biewe's hands do not come off, so it'll be a session to remove that garment. The armor pieces are all removable if you're like me and want to switch it up (or clip the pieces together for a conversation-starter bracelet.) The boots are CyGirls.

Biewe and her 12 sister warriors will be for sale at the Wiscon40 Art Show in Madison, WI over Memorial weekend this year

For those who will not be attending WisCon, a 4x6 art print of Biewe is available at my etsy shop.
