i received from SunflowerSmiles! she chose my kendo theme.

she introduced him in a note:
Quote
I hope you enjoy Henry the Kendo Warrior Wannabe. He has no weapons since he's more of a lover than a fighter (he got tired of nicking his tail)

i love that he's blue.  Smiley


i couldn't quite persuade him to sit in seiza, but here he is in the lotus position.


SunflowerSmiles also included some cute fat quarters, a fun stretchy bracelet, and some very pretty earrings (i especially love the green ones).
i'm one happy swapper! thanks for everything!

Prepare to be dazzled, my monkey loving friends, and to then bow down before the greatness, the genius, that is Craftster noelle, from whom I have received a most spectacular sock monkey creation.  The skill and attention to detail truly deserve the description of awesome so much so that I was actually dumbstruck and gasping for air when I beheld the awesomeness of.

Captain Monkeypants!



His vented coat, with leather cuffs and a yoked back, is beautifully lined:



Here hes taken it off and is waiting (again) for his crew:



noelle has filled Mals outfit with so many amazing details, demonstrating not only her crafting brilliance and care, but the love of a true Firefly fan as well!  Hopefully shell post pictures to the Toys board and get the full attention and credit she deserves; for now, here are just a few highlights.

(1) The repair to his coat where it was damaged in the Battle of Serenity; (2) the yoked and pleated back of shirt; (3) waistband, front fly, holster belt, suspender attachments; (4) boots; (5) holster (with polymer clay modeled gun) and a portion of expertly inset pant stripe:



     

Here are a couple of action shots, seated with a model of Serenity and hiding from bad guys on a desert planet:



And if that wasnt plenty of time and effort to encompass both monkey and personal items (squared), noelle also made me a Serenity bookmark the background AND the letters are all hand cut and individually applied:



noelle and I actually live fairly close to each other and were able to meet so she has been multiply hugged and thanked in person, but let me do it here virtually as well THANK YOU SO MUCH for this amazing gift, noelle!
