Everyone meet Colin Smiley

So he was made for my boyfriends birthday last week, Colin likes cuddles and a good pillage! Smiley

He's all hand sewn and as you can see from the pics, it's not the neatest, partly from lack of experience and partly cos i used thread that was a pain in the bum (I wanted it thick) and kept seprating and getting all knotted and outof control so i kinda gave up and worked with the messy look after all how many zombies have you seen recently that looked neat and tidy?! Tongue

The details like the long hair and peircings are there to emulate my bf. Colin is his alter-ego!  Wink

From the back

After making him I quickly knocked up a little 'coffin' for him to arrive in

inside was colin, looking a bit squished

with a scary letter and a promise of trasure...

which was tickets for 2000Trees Festival!  Grin yey! so excited to see Maybeshewill!!

Anyways, the bf loved his present (whoop!) and I think he's the cutest zombie pirate to ever shiver me timbers!

Wow...I love him! Those thick, "messy" stitches definitely add the the zombie appeal of him. I love that you made the little coffin, too.  Grin Grin
