where I ramble on about what's happening in my little world
and hopefully you have some enjoyment reading about it!

sad farewell :o(

I vant him back....
(said in the deepest Transilvanian accent I can manage)

I had to say goodbye to this chap yesterday as he went on his journey to his new home. I'm hoping he doesn't dine out on too many postal workers en-route!!
(maybe I should have packed him off with a nice raw steak as a snack?.....)
I don't know what it is about my dolls just lately, but Ive been getting REALLY attached to them, it was like packing off one of my children!!! daft old thing that I am LOL
He's loosely based on Bela Lugosi's Dracula, (the old, original Dracula movie) and the customer didnt want fangs. But then I suppose vampire fangs aren't on view unless they're eating so it made perfect sense....

if you click on him it'll zoom the pic even more

He's just under 6 " tall, poseable, and again I have used eyes made by Debie from Piskies & Poppets. They are a dream to use! I wasn't looking forward to dressing him as it meant I had to make yet another jacket!! you all know how much I dislike jackets! but it wasnt so bad after all, so I must be getting used to them now. I also made him a detachable cape, he tried it out by flapping about around the school of majick which didnt impress its inhabitants at all, and they all ran away, jumped on their broomsticks and scarpered! methinks there'll be some garlic concoctions being brewed soon!!

there he is flapping about..... looking for a late night snack!
(its not easy taking dark/moody night time pics on macro is it?!)

if you like vampires, you should pop over and take a look at William Bezek's blog to see his latest creation! his are a lot bigger than 1:12 scale but REALLY good! and theres a coffin 'to die for'!!

I also said goodbye to a few pumpkins this week, the last few for a while are on ebay this week if you want to grab one.
(click on the pick to take you to ebay direct)

I know I will make more of them, but for now I am pumpkin'ed out. I have a few doll commissions to wade through anyway, 'witch' I'm looking forward to LOL apart from several witches, (and yes, poor ol Granny Weatherwax is STILL in a state of undress!) I've also got a mummy, a wolfman and Frankensteins bride wanting to appear before Halloween and I'm not the quickest at creating anything so need to get my skates on!! so I may not be about for a while.... or at least that's the plan!

El vampiro está perfecto. Seguro que tendrá un buen viaje a su nueva casa.
Estas calabazas con las velas están muy bien hechas así que es normal que las vendas rápido.
