I participated in the Edward Gorey swap, and made this for my partner.  The Gashlycrumb Tinies (for those not familiar) recounts the tragic demise of 26 children (in alphabetical order.)  The cover of that book is a classic Gorey illustration - the reaper surrounded by the kids.
  AAAAAANYWAY... here he is - about 16" tall, fabric and sculpey.  His umbrella is stiffened fabric and he has a loop on his back so he can hang on the wall.  Smiley
