So, my college holds an annual Duck Derby. Basically, you pay $2 for a duck, decorate it, race it in a small river, and win prizes. Prizes are also given for decoration... and all proceeds go to a local children's hospital. I wasn't on-campus the weekend of the Duck Derby, so my ducks didn't get to race or be judged, but oh well.. they were fun to make..

Sorry the pics are so dark... I forgot to turn my flash on.. and I'd take new pics, but the ducks are no longer in my possession.

The pirate:




The cowboy:




Both hats are the little straw ones for dolls, coated in felt and then sewn/glued into the proper shape.
Everything else is super glue, pipe cleaners, popsicle sticks, and marker.

Cute, eh?

duck facial hair is genius.
the sight of a curly mustache and mini soul patch on a rubber duck was just what i needed this morning. 
awesome work!  you would have won for sure if they'd been judged.

Haha.. Thanks guys!

I agree about the pirate's facial hair. I drew it on and looked at him and just.. laughed. I was like, "This.. is absolutely absurd." But those seem to be the things I enjoy the most, the absurd ones, so.. it works.!
