Moirae Moon Buns

This is my entry for a Mythology-based Plush Team challenge.

The Moirae, also known as the three fates, are from Greek mythology, but similar goddesses exist in Roman and Norse myth. These goddesses decide everyone's destiny. In early representations of the three, they were young and beautiful, however they have also been seen as hags. In my representation of these three goddesses, I chose to express them as the triple goddess of Maiden, Mother and Crone.

Clotho spun the thread of life.
Lachesis measured the thread of life allotted for each person.
Atropos cut the thread of life, choosing the manner of each person's death and when their time will come.

These three goddesses are available in the Plush Team store!

It is amazing how something as simple as hair can indicate age in an amigurumi. Awesome job, sempai!
