As usual, I am super late to the Cool Party so I have missed out on the awesomeness of Flight of the Conchords until a few months ago. Now, I am smitten. I have done a few different crafty projects based on the FOTC show and my latest is this set of wooden peg people.

These wooden pegs are each 2 3/8" tall and I hand painted each one with acrylic paints and then sealed them on all sides with gloss varnish, so they're perfect for cake toppers or toys! I took some creative liberties with the characters, but I think they still work.

If you're interesting in seeing more pictures and my other Conchords Crafts, I put them all up on my Flickr account. Smiley

Sort of! It's the shirt that he loans to Bret in the episode "The New Fans" because it's supposedly very attractive to chicks. In his words it's "a mouse doin' another mouse stuck in a mouse trap." Bret wears this shirt during the 'date' with the two new fans (Summer and Rain) in the hopes of attracting them.

I put it on Dave for his little peg person, because Bret's more often seen in his penguin sweatshirt... and *technically* the shirt belongs to Dave. Smiley
