This is what I made for the One Tiny Stuffie Swap for lanikins and I grew so attached to the little critters, I just had to give them their own thread Grin:

Lanikins strongly hinted at a fascination for Gnarf (and liking the fuschia-black combination), but sadly , he is refusing to leave his post of keeping the boyfriend's butt safe. So he sent three noted members of his family:

First off, we have Darfula- the youngest member of Gnarf's extended family. Although her family is Transilvanian,  Darfula was born without bat-wings or fangs. Because of that, she decided at the age of two to let her hair grow instead. She enjoys sitting on people's heads, rather than hanging from their throats as her parents do, has a disturbing interest in lovestories and tends to giggle excessively.

(wool dreads with one eye+ feather-eyelash and little bone-decoration; it has a hairclip on the back; rolled up, she meets the 5"-requirements Wink)

Secondly, we have greatauntie Arfie of Arfington, probably the oldest member of Gnarf's big family. She likes dirty limericks and tends to display a strange appetite for brains when she's gotten drunk at family reunions, which might explain the general lack of geniuses in Gnarfs family and why most of her relatives avoid her. For all that, she is really a sweetheart. Rumor is, that someone bit a piece out of her long ago and she's been a little odd and missing a couple of body pieces since. Due to her sloth genes, she likes to "hang" around and be lazy.

(A cyklops-zombie-sloth- because lanikins likes sloths Grin with a not-so-visible bitemark on her right side and velcro straps on her arms and legs, so she can be attached to things; all bundled up for the voyage, she was 5 inches in each direction Wink)

Thirdly, we have Barfette, Gnarf's older sister. She insisted on coming along and has such a big mouth, she would NOT be ignored. Being worried about her generally rather mean appearance, she takes extra care to be sweet and female and is therefor never without her splash of pink, weather that's eyeshadow or a bow in her hair.

( a purse with inside pockets and one extra outside one on the back and admittedly, nowhere near 5 inches Wink)
Because I had kind of a hard time sending them off, I am extra-glad lanikins liked the things I sent her and I hope they make her giggle a little every day Grin

I'm absolutely obsessed with Gnarf.  Think he was my first Pinterest Pin!

Must.. have.. one....

These are just as awesome! I think Barfette will be my second obsession. Tongue

Oh, thank you Makaylalee! That makes me very happy Grin Maybe we get to be partners in swap someday and then I'm pretty sure one of Gnarf's relatives could be convinced to come live with you Wink
