Smiles from the British Isles

From the photo, it appears that 'Otis the Moonshiner' is ga-ga over his new home in England. How could he not be happy while surrounded by such lovely ladies?

A friendly face

Father and son?

Actually it's son and father. My 2T Otis head (on the right) came first. Then I sculpted a larger full-size head. The bigger Otis is my first casting from the mold. The smaller Otis was going to be a new nerd character until I got an order for an "Otis the Moonshiner" figure. So instead of buck teeth and half-masted eyelids, he gets a snaggle tooth and wide-open eyes.

Jolly Ol' St. Nick

The elf figure I built for a Canadian Santa made it in time to be in the Christmas Parade. You might notice that this Santa is a unique Santa with his blue beard and tiger suit because Santa is channeling Jimmy Lightshow Reedyk. I'm sure Santa and his elf were a big hit as they marched down the street and waved to the crowds.

Here we go again

Just got a shipment of new cast heads from Braylu Creations. Among them is my new 3T Otis the Moonshiner head. This one will be a full 40" tall. I'm also going to build another full-size Cheeky Boy ("Jackie"). The third figure will be a nerd using a 2T Otis head.

Let the work begin!
