I made a figurine of my crush!! (don't tell him that though :-p) It's for his birthday on July 20th and I can't friggin' wait to give it to him!





His nickname is Chili, hence the letters, and I gave him a set of fangs because he likes to wear fake vampire fangs for no reason at all. :-p He also has a shoulder wound (from a car accident he was in), and a steel beam through his foot, (from some work-related accident). And finally, he comes with a first aid kit, fire extinguisher, cat, and tools.

In case anyone would care to look at some pictures of the real Chili, quite a few can be found at http://www.nicograph.com/HauntedChicago06/index.htm.

Is it a bobblehead, like Angela gave Dwight for Valentine's Day on The Office?  Wink

Yes, it's all made out of clay (well, except for the steel beam, and his accessories [first aid kit, tools, etc]). It's not a bobblehead though, hehehehehe. I actually tried making a bobblehead awhile back, but the head cracked so I gave up and started making plain figurines.

Oh, that's great!  How can you ever wait till the middle of the summer to give it to him?!?!?!  Just love all the personalized stuff he has.


Btw if you want to make bobbleheads, or want to make clay heads that won't crack for any figure, (solid clay heads thicker than about 1 1/2" are most susceptible to cracking), check out these two places at my site:
