I'm kind of obsessed with peg people right now. I blame these people (http://www.filthwizardry.com/2010/10/diy-star-wars-toys.html). I saw their Star Wars peg people and had to make some (which look exactly like theirs, so I won't post them). Then I came across amazing Harry Potter peg dolls on Etsy and shamelessly stole the idea (well, Hagrid was my own addition):

Oooooooh, it's those darn Slytherins!

Then I sort of went into a crafting frenzy. Here's one of those one-dollar wooden cabinet things from the unfinished wood section at Michaels (cut horizontally in half, painted brown, and turned upside down). It can hold anything you need for Potions or Herbology class.

Wait, those are no ordinary plants! Those are mandrakes! (sculpey and toothpicks)

Professor Quirrell is sporting a turban made of Sculpey. There's also professor Sprout (who really needs her gardening hat, I think), and Profs McGonagall, Dumbledore, Flitwick, and Snape. I think there are two Flitwicks in the movie versions -- a really old one, and this guy who also conducts the choir. I like this guy better -- he's a natty dresser.

When Quirrell takes off his turban, look out! (Stole this idea from the Lego Quirrell.) I'm really pleased with how McGonagall's hair turned out -- I just dragged a toothpick through the paint, and it really looks like a bun.

I seriously am obsessed. My boys and my friends really seem to like them, and I'm a sucker for positive reinforcement.  Smiley  Also, I think they're so compelling to me because I'm in dental school, and there's a much more immediate gratification than crocheting, which is what I usually do.

Thanks for looking!

McGonagall is my favourite, love how it looks like she's trying not to smile, as she so often does in the movies  Grin

You did go totally nuts with these guys.  I am so envious. I love the edition of the herbology supplies.  These must have taken forever.

Oh, no, they really don't take long at all. You paint a little, let it dry ... come back to it half an hour later, paint a little, let it dry ... come back the next day, paint a little ... etc. There were lots of different colors, so it did take like a week total, but only in little bits of time, you know? I left everything up on my dining room buffet so I could always stop by and add the next thing.

Wow!  Those are terrific.  You really did a great job!

We could learn a lot from crayons:
some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names.
All are different colors,
but they all have to learn to live in the same box.
