The extent in which Stephen Moyer inspires his fans’ creativity seems to have no limits. Drawings, paintings, jewelry, dolls, bookmarks, pillow cases, cookies and socks where created and sold in support of Stephen’s favorite charitable causes. But what we are auctioning off this week, on honor of the True Blood episode directed by Stephen, is completely unique and never seen before.
Our dear friend TypOneg aka Pat is without a doubt one of Stephen’s most dedicated and loyal fans, she even tracked him down in the Canadian woods with her friends while he was there filming The Barrens. Pat has dedicated many hours and no doubt a couple of sore fingers creating an amazing one-of-a-kind wall hanging, inspired by our favorite Essex lad.
This is what Pat says about her inspiration and work.
Last fall, looking for a way to help pass the long wait before Season 5 (besides wandering in the woods outside Toronto, that is), I came up with the idea of making a Bill wall hanging. Since the moment he stalked his way into Merlotte’s, I’ve been intrigued by this brooding, enigmatic, self-loathing, but one-woman man, er vampire…as well as his alter ego, of course.
I first found the fabric: purple, black, and red, high-quality, all-cotton. Then I added the photos (photo-transfer fabric); some of my favorite Bill images. And a few embellishments. It’s washable, by hand, in cold water. The wall hanging can be ironed, at a cotton setting. The pictures should be pressed at a low steam setting: silk or wool. And best not to expose them to direct sunlight.
I’m not sure how long it took to make in total; it doesn’t really matter…it was a true labor of love. Enjoy!
The wall hanging is 38″ x 38″ (96.5 x 96.5 cm).
Pay close attention to the enormous amount of detail that was put into the wall hanging. Click images to enlarge.
