So...this is a SPAMonster..


He is trying to look extra huge since he is afraid of you...this is true.  SPAMonsters are afraid of humans.  This particular SPAMonster made friends with my dogs, so I was able to eventually get near enough to tame it.  One of the interesting thing about SPAMonsters is they can change their body shape and configuration.  I was able to get a pic of a lesser seen expression...



Another interesting thing is that you can take their faces off and wear them around like jewelry....I was very surprised by this quality!



Here I am wearing his face like a bracelet.  As you can see, when I lift my hand in the air, he keeps looking at me instead of turning his back.


I was a bit nervous about wearing him around my neck, but he was very gentle and didn't once strangle me in the 3 hours I wore him around the house.

He also works as a head band of sorts.....he would make a wonderful addition to a SPAM inspired belly dance costume as a head piece
.

OK..ya caught me.  I actually made this little beasty out of a SPAM can.  Here's some pics of the before part..

             

I was thinking of old school SPAM where the label was printed on the can *snort*..so I eventually had to figure out a way to put the plastic like SPAM label onto the metal tab that gets pulled off to expose the meat...it is meat right?...I used packing tape.  That way I could cover the edges with the tape too.  I also used the packing tape to seal the back of the pull ring.  I then added the safety eyes that I clipped the backs off of.    Then I filled the spaces with glow in the dark paint.  I added grommets to the ends of the SPAM and one in the lower space of the A for the face part.  I just used elastic cord doubled up  so I wouldn't have to have a closer.  Then I pinched the can and glued on the fur...Monster Mischief Made ...and I now have jewelery to wear when I feel like talking way too much Grin

And again - only you could think up this use for a container/can! I think the word "spam" is utterly funny - but what is it- some kind of meat product?  In any case, your spaMonster is cute and I love the old fake fur you used. And of course, it's great that it's face comes off Grin

I partly think the reason SPAM has survived so many years is the funny name Grin
Since I wanted to get my info right, I looked it up and found there is a wiki...or course there is a wiki Grin
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spam_%28food%29

Here is the home site of SPAM
http://www.spam.com

Though it sounds a bit disturbing, it is kind of yummy once in awhile scrambled into eggs.  Or pan fried till it's just as crispy as bacon Grin

Thanks Sweets4.  Thankfully for me, the label is a plastic and not paper, so it survived my first attempt to glue it to the lid Grin

There is a Hawaiian cafe in Washington state that has tons of SPAM recipes.  I haven't had the opportunity to eat there yet though.

Oh you!! Your signature style and stories always make your monsters come to life! Does your SPAM monster eat spam emails? If so, I want one Cheesy!!

When I ate meat, I'd have Spam fried up now and then. It's like hot dog meat squirted into a can instead of a sausage casing. Yummers Smiley.

Sadly no LimeR.  My research so far seems to show the SPAMonster actually increases SPAM...but mostly because I keep singing the SPAM song from Monty Python waaay to often now...

Yes....I prefer to imagine real SPAM being gently laid by large elephant like creatures.  It's part of a natural secretion process that leaves the elephant like creatures feeling refreshed.  It's gathered and processed to make it more palatable for human consumption Grin...and I still eat it once in awhile Grin

In Canada they have CLICK, which is like SPAM.  But if you run around saying "CLICK, CLICK, CLICK,"  you get looked at waaay odder than you do if you run around saying "SPAM, etc."

And SMACK is funny for several English plays on words Wendie.  A smack is a kiss, hitting someone (normally in the arm, and in a friendly way, but still aggressive), and a slang name for heroin.  So, if you ever eat smack make sure it doesn't have smack in it Grin
