I'm doing a personal swap, and was asked if I could make Shaun from Shaun of the Dead. I was THRILLED to get started. I asked if he should be clean cut, like the beginning of the movie, or extra bloody, like the end of the movie. The extra bloody won.

He was so much fun to make! I used the Free Spirit Doll pattern. His pants are elastic waistband and are removable.


His goatee and blood are all painted on. His tie around his head is a scrap of fabric from an old bridesmaid dress. I have to put that to use somehow, right? lol

Since his pants are removable, he needed undies! I think Shaun is totally a tighty whities kind of guy. Smiley



And, this was all based off of this picture.


I'm still planning on him having a few accessories to battle zombies. Either way, I'm incredibly happy with how he turned out.
C&C welcome!!

I saw the thumbnail pic and was so excited!  I knew who it was right away!  You did a great job.  I just love him!  I may have to make one for myself as soon as I can.  Yours is just brilliant!  Grin
