i went to warped on 7/23 and had these with me so i could give them to the guys, but they werent doing a signing that day (just my luck). so i gave them to their merch girl sara and she gave them to the guys. after the show they did in the city on the 25th, i got to tell ash and cc that i made them. i hope the rest of the band liked them (i know jinxx did).
*sob* i miss my little boys
even though i no longer have the figures in my possesion, i still own them, along with this photo and their souls. and they do have souls.
People seemed to really like my Hardy Thingamabobs (in the back) so I decided to make some more!
The Heath Slater was a big learning curve for me as was the Justin Gabriel. Heath's head fell off! Glue solved that. But now I know to "glue" their head on with liquid clay before cooking them. I didn't like Heath's boots but perfected that on Justin and also figured out how to put trunks on these little guys. I also slightly burned Justin's hair so I know to lay them down in my toaster oven now. Heath's hair is horrible so I developed a "layering" system with the others which turned out really well I think.
So what do you guys think?
Made from Polymer clay and all about 4cm long. Undertaker a bit more for his hat.
I included the Natalya I did which is now ~24koCylinder's keychain.
If you want a better look at any of them let me know and I'll post seperate pictures.
These are plushies of the Boondock Saints, Conner and Murphy MacManus.
They were a couple of fun guys to make. Relatively simple outfits. Plain black t-shirts, jeans, and peacoats. The peacoats are removable and the buttons can also be done/undone. It's kinda hard to see the jacket against the black shirts...hopefully the picture with the jacket all buttoned up can give an idea of how the jacket looks. The rips in the jeans were requested. It's an interesting feeling, sewing 2 little pairs of jeans and then going at them with a seam ripper...felt like I was doing something wrong, heh
They have their tats as well. The crosses on the forearms and the words on the index fingers were done with iron on transfers. The Mary tattoos were hand-embroidered. I know that's not the exact placement, but seeing as how my plushies don't really have much neck, it was the place that I thought they'd be most visible.
The rosaries are also kinda hard to see in the picture. The cross was done with fabric (hardened with fabric stiffener) and the rest was done with beads I had on hand. The cross, unfortunately, doesn't have as much definition as I hoped, due to the nature of the fabric used.
It's always difficult to capture human characters in plush form. In the end, I think I captured Murphy more than I did Connor (his hair was a bit more difficult to pull off). Hopefully I did these guys justice
They're around 13-14 inches tall. Handmade, made from craft velour, denim, shirt fabric, fleece, vinyl. The faces were embroidered by hand.
