 I made this for a White Elephant party, and gave him along with a card that said "Goodnight, Sleep Well, Most Likely Kill You In The Morning. XOXO Dread Pirate Roberts" and a collection of every T.V. guide from the year 2004 (I had a subscription that year . . .).

the woman that opened him first had no clue what he was supposed to be, and seemed rather freaked out by him . . . but everyone else at the party knew who he was, and he got stolen away and given to a good home. Cheesy

He has a ponytail!

here's a better picture of his puffy shirt. It was sewn seperately and then hand-sewn around the wrists and waist for maximum puff-capacity!

You are the coolest person ever. Officially. I'm glad it went to a good home (who doesn't know Princess Bride?Huh!!). I wouldn't have been able to part with it.

I teach high school English and use this movie during our fairy tale unit!  I love the characters.  Very cool doll.

Didn't know who he was? Inconceivable!

 Thanks for all the great comments, Kids! It was rather sad to find out that the lady that got him first had no clue who he was, but it made me happy to see him swapped three times (the maximum limit for a gift at a White Elephant to be swapped), and he ended up with the host of the party and is sitting happily on his bookshelf in the living room. I thought about making a Buttercup for him, but I finished Dread Pirate Roberts with  only one hour to spare before the party :S, maybe next year. Cheesy

If anyone is interested he was modified from Baby London Star's plush tutorial (http://www.members.shaw.ca/plushie/ufoplush/)
