This is Jeffy. He likes to Cosplay.

This is him the week Deathly Hallows came out.


These are his tan lines from his costumes.


So I repainted him.






I started with a good coat of white Krylon primer then base coated with a medium pink. I darkened the low areas and dry brushed the highlights.

Please let Jeffy know if you think he is pertty.
Thanks.

Wow, Jeffy, you're VERY purty!
I really like him repainted, you did an awesome job Grin He looks less like hollow plastic and more like a Flamingo Cheesy

I had two flamingos that we used to put in the snow in Massassachusetts when we lived in officer's base housing there (hubby in Navy - one of those oddball assignments). They wouldn't let me have them in the summertime, so while everyone else had snowmen, I had flamingos!

Jeffy is HOT! He should feel much more handsome after his makeover.

He looks gorgeous!  When I was a kid my neighbor left two of these in our front yard as a joke.  For some reason my mother spray painted them orange... Also, a couple years ago my city had a fundraiser where you wake up and there's a flock of flamingos on your front lawn- you have to pay to have them moved to someone else's house!  If they were as pretty as Jeffy, they probably wouldn't have raised so much money- you are privileged to have him on your lawn.

Thankfully the army housing here in Germany dosn't care. Jeffy gets to be out ALL year.

I love Jeffy! He reminds me of the geese with bonnets I've seen being sold at craft shows, but he's much cooler.  Smiley

Jeffy is one hot flamingo! I am so glad you gave him his make over. The original flamingo factory closed their doors this year- they were no longer able to make a  profit- so I am happy Jeffy got saved Cheesy

It has been cold here and Jeffy asked for something to keep him warm. I croched a hat and a scarf for him. The neighbors laugh but he likes it.

That is the awesomeness. I'm only sad that Jeffy doesn't cosplay any anime like I thought he would. Now that would give your neighbors something to laugh about!  Wink

I agree!  The paint job makes him look very realistic!  Now I must make some clothes so my flamingo can also cosplay...
