Me again with yet another Abandoned Toy. Can't stop making these!
Here is Edgar
I find abandoned toys quite regularly on my travels. Here is the before shot, with a group of other toys ready for customisation. You may recognise Darla the Ragdoll from my post here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=447805.0
As you can see, he was very plain and oversized. First job was to dye him purple:
The colour didn't take perfectly, it faded a lot, but I like the macabre colour he turned out.
Next step was to slim him down a little. I took in some of the seams in his head to give it more shape and with the foam pieces stuffing it made him delightfully lumpy and misshapen
I added some applique skulls to his body before stuffing.
Next were the eyelids and mouth to give him a more sinister look. Love the dark purple. Then I glued in a set of resin teeth to complete the look and added some oversized stitching.
I love how he turned out in the end
