LJ Phillips, the artist/writer of my favorite webcomic, hosted a holiday themed contest. This was my entry:


Vinnie is wearing a bright red sweater covered in Christmas lights and his friend Rabbit gave him a pin to try to cheer him up (Vinnie isn't a Christmas person). The pin didn't cheer him up but I think it works to make his sweater uglier. Grin The pin reads: Be Naughty Save Santa the trip".

He was made using my own pattern, which still needs a bit of tweaking, and he stands about 15" tall. I know that's big for an ami but the guy he's based on is well over 6ft tall.
His skin is Red Heart Super Saver Cafe Latte, his sweater is RHSS Cherry Red, his side-burns are RHSS Light Gray and his shoes and hair are RHSS Black. His pants are made of wool/acrylic felt and all of his clothes are completely removable.
The lights on his sweater are Favorite Findings Brite Lights charms.
His eyes are small shank buttons that I covered with air dry clay, painted, then sealed with spray sealant.
