Hey everyone,

It's been a while since I posted one of my Abandoned Toys. They've been getting a lot creepier lately, yet still adorable in their own disturbing way!

For those of you unfamiliar with my work, what I do is take abandoned or preowned toys and make them ugly to represent our throwaway society. I'm on my own personal mission to save as many toys from landfill as I can!

This is my latest creation, and he's the tallest one I've made so far! He stands over a metre tall  Shocked

I wish I had taken a before picture of this one! I usually do. He started life as a tall blonde girly rag doll with pigtails  Grin

I'm just trying to think of a suitable name for him, any suggestions?

That's a pretty disturbing face, especially the mouth!  The pink wig matching the shoes ties the whole ensemble together pretty well in my opinion.  Nice job on your creepy clown; if I was walking down the street, looked up, and saw that thing sitting on a tree limb above me, it'd definitely make me jump!

When I think of evil clowns the first name that always comes to mind is Pennywise, due to Stephen King's It.  Maybe have a look at this list and see if anything strikes your fancy:

Even without a before photo I imagine that was quite the transformation. As always, the teeth are such a great and weird addition. Nicely done and I appreciate your message.

I like clowns and don't really understand how they are creepy. I mean, ok, a bloody stitched up mouth is awful to contemplate on any creature but when clowns are portrayed as terrifying I just look at them and think, "How silly, clowns are fun!".

Here is my Bubbles, I love him.

Cotton Candy the Clown; at least it was the name that popped into my head when I saw the hair.  We do live in a throw away society so I love that you saved this doll and made it into a nightmare.  Kudos!

I am a big fan of clowns, and this one is delightfully creepy. LOVE!!

I might wear that outfit, if it came in my size...
