I'm both relieved you are okay AND that you love your package - haha!  I had a blast making this - I think I may have been temporarily possessed by the ghost of Gorey.  Wink

i am a horrible horrible person who takes waaaaay too long to get shiz done! these photos were just quick in a terrible sighting situation, but they were the best we could do... they really don't do my awesome new lootz justice but i wanted to share with everyone before i had to take off out of town for the weekend again!

okay, so the first thing i found when i opened up the MASSIVE package i'd received from thisbirdisabsurd is this totally awesome card.

this is NOT A PRINT. this is a pen drawing. it looks like the real thing. it is awesome. i am going to frame it and hang it on my wall. =)

then i got the cutestest leetle handpainted box. sheeck it out!
 

it says "L is for Leo who swallowed some tacks". i love eet!

and for the main event! i wish these photos could convey to you how awesome this guy is. because he is TOTALLY AMAZEBALLS!!


and he's HUGE! like, just a hair under two feel tall WITHOUT his umbrella! his head, hands, and feet are made of sculpey, i think. his body is stuffed, and his legs are cloth wrapped wire. i'm not sure how she made the umbrella - it's a coarse cheesecloth type fabric that has been stiffened somehow. i love love love love him, and i have a built-in niche in the hallway where i think he will be peeeerfect. hmmm..... now i'm gonna have to get somebody to make me some gashlycrumb tinies.. *ahem*...

thanks sooo much thisbirdisabsurd, i can't tell you how much i LURVE my goodies - i'm seriously soooo stoked over everything!! i just finished my main item for you the night before last - i hope you love as much as i love what i got! i've gotta finish up one other little project for you (probably early next week) and i will be able to send!

So glad you loved your package - and good to know he has a placeall picked out for him.  Wink  Don't be afraid to screw around with his arm/ umbrella until you get it how you want it - he can take it!  Wink 
  Looking forward to seeing what you made!  Woo hoo!

Yowza!  This thing totally rocks!  I'm blown away by every detail, including the fact that you packaged and shipped a two foot tall art doll.  The tacks and box are great, too.
