Meet the NOMMS!


Indigenous to closet corners and green places, the NOMMS are a shy race of free-spirited ground dwellers.

Their main strategy to avoid capture is moving at the speed of snails and thereby successfully fooling the onlooker into thinking that they are lifeless. No self-respecting carnivore would ever try to eat them. This results from their incredible ability to talk their opponents to death with mindless, neverending chatter when they feel threatened, although in their natural state when happy and content, NOMMS are shy and quiet.

The NOMMS' droppings are said to have numerous magical attributes, such as the growing of violently green facial hair, when consumed in a stiff drink. Because of this superstition, they are highly popular among the different tribes of Leprechauns and were held in captivity until it became known, that most of their owners died of chatter-caused exploding-head-syndrome
 
The NOMMS live on a diet of air and all things green. Unique individuals of this race have been found to even develop romantic feelings for evergreen plants, broccoli or green Jell-O.

Due to their worship of all things green-ish and the NOMMS' unceasing chatter at evil captors, the creation myths of their god, Gooey, the Green, prompted the early rumors of aliens as beings with green skin.

In 1912, two of the oldest NOMMS by the name of Mo and No, organized a mass-strike where all NOMMS stopped pooping and thus escaped their prisons.
Today, the average NOMMS can only be found outside of Ireland.








This was originally inspired by the incredible Green Elevator's and loveandasandwich's creations and it started as a fake swap along with the current Covert Abandoned Art Swap- but as you can see, I only made 4 of them so far and I seriously doubt that I will be able to just abandon these fuzzy creatures in the wild streets of the city. So now I have to find them loving homes... Grin
They are all handstitched and about 8,5 inches tall and about 5 inches wide.

Thank you, Dr. Craft, Bunnie Boo,  teachart and lovesclutter!  Grin

The NOMMS are very happy to meet with your approval and they tell me, that if a green NOMMS is born, he or she immediately advances to leadership of whatever group it is born in, which might account for some of the more odd behaviour certain groups have exhibited- like the wearing of underwear on their heads Grin
Only if two green NOMMS have offspring and that one is born green, will he or she be considered a god. Of course, Gooey, the Green, is said to have been the first one of them and the story goes that she had 13 green children!

SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EEEEEEEE!!!

I absolutely adore the the bunny-esque ears on the blue one, but the colour orange stole my heart long ago...

Although I think all of them have unsafe levels of cuteness.

Oh, wow- thank you girls! It does look as if there will be a few more of them coming into the world as Mr. Secret-fake-fur-stash informed me Grin But Mr.Orange ( for lack of a better name- very secret that one- he blantantly informed me he will only reveal his true name to his future caregiver) is reserved for Suereal (because she was fastest in claiming adoption-rights)... Mr. Red-ish is leaving for his new home today, but he informs me that there is a green one on it's way instead... Grin
