Cute cute CUTE! I love his face and the fact that you tied him in with Nightmare Before Christmas but didn't make him creepy. He's really well made.

I said it before, but I LOVE him!
He came out so perfectly spookypookyish (yes, that's a word.)
I didn't notice the hidden Mickey before! Love that idea.
(My husband and I love looking for those. Hmm, now I think when we get our next house, we need to add some in to our decorating.)

I fell in love with his face on facebook, and after reading his story love all of him even more.  Great job with the nontraditional take of the shelf elf.

He is so cute!! I love his poem too. His face is so adorable. I can't believe it's paint, it looks like a professional printed fabric. My favorite part is his shirt with suspenders and bow tie! Soo adorable. Oh my and those little shoes with the bells are to die for. He's wonderful!

Aw, thank you! That is an amazing compliment to say it looks like printed fabric!  Shocked Thank you so much!  Grin

Thank you so much! I always try to find a happy balance of cute but still Tim Burton inspired.  Smiley

Thank you Scribble! Almost everything I make anymore seems to have a hidden Mickey these days and my house has them too. Smiley And I think I will always call my stuff spookypookyish from now on. lol.  Wink

Thank you kjlutz! I love giving my dolls stories to really give them a personality, so I appreciate your compliment!

Thank you again, everybody!!
