I've been working on this monsters of the alphabet project for awhile.  I think I started in april, and I did one or two every day until I hit M.  Then I had a toy show upcoming so it kind of got pushed out of my head for awhile & I started it back up in June.  Then I moved 18 hours when I hit V!

But now I'm done!
& of course I have to share my results with all you guys. Cheesy

I just finished putting them all together nicely in order with their names.

(Right click "VIEW IMAGE" to see full size!)

Also, I've been working on a whole litter of 16 monster babies, with one monster mom that's about 3 times their size. Cheesy

I took them outside to take pictures of them in their "natural habitat", but none of them came out like I wanted to. Sad  So at a last minute idea for a good picture I emptied & cleaned out the fridge, and the boyfriend posed in front of it for me.  What a sport. Grin

You can't see any of them too well in those pictures so I'll put them all up here.  I've written mini life stories about them, of course.  Some of them are worth reading. Grin

Zam's two favorite things in life are football, and marine biology. Going to school he found he couldn't balance the two equally the way he wanted. So he tried a new approach, and became the very first deep-sea football coach. His team went on to win the very first Deep Sea Superbowl.

Zekk realized at puberty that he had a strange, and fantastic gift. He could miraculously evaluate the amount of ink in any pen he carried with him and know exactly how many sentences he could write until it was time for a new pen. Of course it's not the most useful gift, but a fantastic one nonetheless.

Ziff's ultimate dream in life is to have a manatee for a best friend and pet. Ever since he saw them on the Discovery Channel he's been completely fascinated by them. He daydreams about what it would be like to put a saddle on the back of one, and speed through the water towards the sun setting across the ocean.

Zomp is a master of all things Will Smith. He's been collecting Will Smith memorabilia since the first season of Fresh Prince of Belair. He owns six copies of his CD Willenium, and eight copies of Independence Day. If someone starts a conversation un-Will Smith related with him, he always finds a way to steer it in the right direction.

Zurk is a professional monster bowler. If you're not a monster, you probably don't know how monster bowling is different than normal bowling. They don't have to wear fancy shoes because there are too many different sizes and shapes of monster feet, and instead of a bowling ball they hurl themselves, tucked in a ball, towards the pins. Zurk is a three time champion.

When Zym was born he discovered that when he whistled he could summon bumblebees to him. While this frightened him at first, he soon learned that it was a blessing, and he was able to string 20 of them together and fly wherever he wanted

Romp was walking through the forest one day and his stomach was grumbling. He saw a ripe apple high up and couldnt reach it. He shouted at the tree and suprisingly, it dropped its apple. He shouted at all the trees and they all gave him their apples willingly. He made sure no one in his family ever went hungry ever again.

Vu is a monsterlympic gymnast. He is the master of many of the events. The horse, the balance beam, and the uneven bars are his specialty. He is a five time gold medal champion, and has been on the cover of MONSTERPOLITAIN magazine. He is the envy of all his monster brothers and sisters.

Konk is an environmental activist. Every year he plants 12 trees, one for each month. He's invented his own 2-wheeled monster car that runs on monster milk. (which is much different from human milk, it doesnt come from cows) He attached his exercise bike to his washing machine so he can get buff and wash his furs at the same time. We should all learn from him!

Mook spends his time in the fall frantically running around trying to glue the leaves back onto the trees. He feels sorry for them, and thinks they must be embarrassed, having to stand there for months and months completely naked!

Lom is the tiniest of all his brothers and sisters. While they all have grown their sharp toddler teeth, Lom's singular tooth hasn't even grown in size since his birth. It doesn't bother him much, though. The one tooth works as a great whistle and has turned his mouth into a fantastic instrument. Sometimes he whistles on the street for coins.

Pluf has spent all of his life so far making a giant to-scale model of Chewbacca from Star Wars. This may not sound too amazing until you find out what Chewbacca is entirely made of. Pencil shavings. Because Pluf is so small, he's barely gotten past Chewie's knees yet.

Gru is a master of crosswords. He once took a 100 page book of crosswords and finished it in a half hour. He claims the blank squares speak to him and tell him what they're supposed to say before he even reads them. His siblings all think he's nuts.

Onf is one of the handful of people who can say they have climbed Mount Everest. What's even more amazing is that he is the smallest creature ever to climb the mountain. He bounded ahead of all the other travelers, and was the first to reach the very top of the mountain. However amazing this is, if you ever meet him at a party, do not ask him to tell you about it. You will be there for hours.

Cru is a BMX superstar. After watching the movie Rad, and discovering the main character had the same name, he realized his true calling. He was not set back by the fact that he had no arms or legs in which to move the pedals or hold the handlebars with. He merely worked and worked his brainpower until he was able to move the pedals and keep the bike steady simply by thinking about it.

Bon is a candy connoisseur. She invents candies from the tops of her head and writes them down as she thinks of them. She sells them for thousands of dollars to the most popular candy companies. In addition to being a chef, she is also a critic. She has arguably one of the best jobs in the world, tasting, rating, and inventing different candy all day long.

& these guys are bigger than the mini monsters/monster babies, & my favorites.

Snex are quiet, and gentle creatures. Don't let their many sharp teeth fool you, they're not dangerous. They're only used to frighten off predators, and believe me, they have many. Natives of their country say that the Snex taste like a combination of cocoa beans, bananas and peaches, which makes the Snex the ultimate delicacy. Sadly because of this, their numbers are rapidly declining. I found these two Snex hiding in a rock face, huddled and hungry, trying to eat rocks for food. I brought them home with me, and they are now looking for new homes.



Took them down the street & had a photoshoot of them in the wilderness. Grin
