i was in the tim burton round 6 swap and made this hatter for RobbinZombie. i also received some not-so-subliminal messages for some time to make a mad hatter poppet, so this was a perfect opportunity to finally get that done...

the eyes, vest and ascot are all hand painted, and i had a REALLY hard time making the hat, for some reason...









and a progress shot...i don't keep my work area very tidy...



thanks so much, as always, for taking a look Cheesy

Excellent poppet. I can't think of one part I like better than the others, he's all round great.
