This was the cover of August 2008 issue of Doll Crafter & Costuming magazine.
Here is a rare view of a windrider (or Areonaut) from the mountainous area of Areoland. It is their way of life to build and fly a variety of unusual air machines. This is a young pilot testing out his newest magical creation. The creators of these machines usually have a gift of magical inheritance that allows their machines to have an interactive personality of a living creature or being.
Exposed parts are prosculpt clay with a soft stuffed body and glass eyes. He is wearing his leather cap, goggles that can be moved over eyes or taken off,a cotton knit shirt and leather vest. His machine is made from two gourds, aves apoxie, a lichen tail and rolls on a set of cork wheels. It has red leather interior with clock dial and levers on the dash and the wings are metal and bark paper.
