While I was working on Alice, Beau(my fiance) finally succeeded in pestering me into making him a Lord of the Rings character.  His first choice was Aragorn, but when I told him to be more realistic he happily suggested Gandalf the White.  As with Link, he made the sculpey items (Gandalfs staff and glamdring, his sword, and the clasp for his cloak).  He also had an idea for making Gandalfs mustache, sideburns and eyebrows using felt as a base.  We glued the thread onto the felt and trimmed the excess.  When I finished, Beau declared him epic lol.


As always the pattern is on my blog:http://shedko247.wordpress.com/2011/01/17/gandalf-the-white/

I declare him epic, too. Amazing work on every detail (the staff!), and he looks so wise. You both should be very proud of him!

Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.

I'm so glad you guys like him.  He took a long time to make and a lot of adjusting as well.  He's definitely one of the hardest I have ever made.
