went over like a Lead Balloon by brokensymphony went over like a Lead Balloon by brokensymphony
Alternating between restocking existing items for Megacon and plush prototyping new stuff. Not sure if this will make the cut for sale at Megacon; need to tweak the curve of the pattern, but happy with him overall.

Another play-on-words that is kind of outdated XD; A lot of people don't get why I sell a pin called a "Hairy Eyeball" so I don't know about this one. I hear in the UK they say "went DOWN like a lead balloon" which honestly makes more sense... apparently it was sometimes "lead zeppelin", too, which certainly explains a certain band name.

Size: I forgot to measure it but it's roughly life size.
Materials: anti-pill fleece, hand-painted eyes, wire, silicone cord

Heehee....so cute. I'd totally buy him. You say you hand painted the eyes? They have such dimension, are they imbedded in acrylic or something?
