Recently a friend requested 2 plush Sam's, from the Halloween movie, Trick R' Treat.  I watched the movie to get a feel for Sam, and while I loved the little creepy cute monster, I was very disappointed that there wasn't MORE Sam throughout the film. Oh well.  Anyway, this is my take on that creepily adorable Halloween Spirit/Guardian.  Cheesy

I even included his little butt flap!

Here's the pair of them together.

I'm super happy with how they turned out, and I LOVE working with sackcloth now.  its got that rustic feel/look, but is still softer than other similar fabrics, like burlap.  I can't wait to make more creepy little things from this stuff.  Cheesy

Sackcloth IS creepy, just see the scarecrow episode of Dr Who. Your sackcloth Sams are lovely/horrible (in a good halloweeny way)

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Very cute.  I particularly like the little trapdoor flap in the back of his trousers.

That is the cutest thing I have ever seen in my life.  I love Trick 'r Treat and this just made my week.
I have one minor suggestion: Sam's footie is more of a red-orange that orange. Other than that, this is absolutely perfect!

Thanks Everybody!

Vader_the_White, Yeah, finding a matching color was one of the hardest things to do. I knew I wanted to use fleece, and they only had about 2-3 oranges. The other one  was SUPER BRIGHT FLORESCENT which wouldn't do at all.

Xbeautiful_disasterX Resin is a great idea as far as holding up and to get that clear effect. I was originally going to try and use the translucent polyclay but decided on just painting the model magic once it dried so it wouldn't be as heavy and sag down too much. He has little loops on his cuffs that you can slide the pop stick in and the model magic is light enough that it keeps up for the most part.
