Prepare to pin!

Looky, what I received from the fabulous racky. It's bloody glorious....



A Doubtful Guest box, and some teeny Ghastly children forever entombed in a magnet tin and the most darling chilling little charm.



Racky, your work always astounds me in its meticulousness. You must have some damned nimble fingers. Thanks bunches!

FINALLY!!!  I've been dying to see this in the gallery ever since I got a sneak peek!  Isn't he the best Doubtful Guest you've ever seen? - in fact everything is great but I have an odd attraction to that little charm - maybe because he is so perfectly encased -as if it was made for him!
  Racky skills strike again!

Whooooaaa!! The more I see (my received package included!), the more inadequate I feel! That is a perfect likeness of the Doubtful Guest.

Racky - amazing package!! It looks like you drew up the Doubtful guest with pen, I love the effect  Cheesy How'd you get the tshirt material to be posable like that? It's perfect.

I did draw him up with pen! He's made of paperclay, and two Sharpies gave up their lives in service for the effect. The scarf just falls that way. I was thinking about wiring it, but luckily for me, it wasn't necessary.

love love love! i was thinking about doing something with the layered-cut-paper-3d-looking-ey technique, too (that's a technical term, dangit!) but the picture i wanted to do it to was crazy complex and i decided i was being overly ambitious and needed to scale back, so that project got cut... you did an amazing job with it! and with the whole package, of course! everything's awesome! =)
