Captain Jack Sparrow, that is.

the socks were the only thing i bought. everythign else was from around the house or stolen from friends (the pants fabric-thanks chrissy!). some of it was recycled from the extras from my captain jack halloween costume which i'm pretty excited to wear this friday to numba twooooo!

this is his face. it gives you a better view of his hair. i knew i would have to try felting it...but you can't exactly buy felting supplies in my small town...so i ripped up some yellow yarn, "dyed" it brown, and used that. i'm not even going to describe my dying method, it's too pathetic and all the perfectionistic, technique-loving craftsters would hate me, haha.
i sewed all the beads and things onto the felted piece, and there are quite a few more on the right side that decided to disappear in the picture.  his mustache (how do you spell that?) and beard are also felted. the beard is actually two little ones, they were just stuck together when i just took the picture.

and here is jack, admiring the beautiful view of the pond...i mean ocean.

and of course, for those unfortunate enough to NOT know who the infamous Captain Jack Sparrow is, here you go. i couldn't find a good full-body shot, just his face....and the second one shows you...well it doesn't really show you much else, i just wanted to let everyone know that it was me, not elisabeth on that island.

i'm not completely satisfied with him...the colours are kind of off (especially the pants and hair) because i had to use only what i could find in my house...but it's all good because he is captain jack and captain jack is the ruler of the universe.

edit: gah! i just realised his hair stick thing (what is it? a bone?) is GONE! it disappeared!! i don't have the motivation to take more pictures, though...just imagine it's there.
