I kept thinking about how cool this fish is...I mean the ol' angler has a built in night light...and scary as all *bleep*...sooo I wanted to make a more huggable version of him...and here he is.......




The fish body is made out of polar fleece...his fins are a cotton batik style quilters fabric...used doll eyes...the light stem is covered in a sock bit...and his teeth are made out of white eco felt...








This is the light base and armature...used a night light kit...garden hose for structure and to insulate the wire from the fabric 'n' polyfil...the orange cover is from an old toy that I found for a dollar at goodwill...wraped up in tape...painted the base blue...ta-da fish night light  Grin

















An up close on how the light bulb cover works....the clear tabs keeps the cover on like a friction/snap fit situation...carved out the center of the orange ball with my dremel cause it had all of those screw tabs and structure on the inside where the old toy light used to be...just drizzled hot glue on the inside to diffuse the light a little bit...my dremel rocks  Grin

I always love when scary creatures are made adorable.  Smiley Love it! (And any creature that can emit light).

What a fanciful interpretation of a truly scary as *bleep* fishy -- great creativity and execution. Just FUN.
