I finished my Surprise Family!  (Jack, Stephen, Sophie, Diana.)

Disclaimer:  I did not make the bodies.  I just dressed and adorned them They're just standard little wooden manikins.  (Where did the spelling "manikin" come from?  What happened to "mannequin"?  Anyway, these are called 4 1/2" wood "manikins.")  (My art supply store was having a huge going-out-of-business sale, and they were only $2.50 each!  How could I resist???)


ETA:  As a joke, I made Stephen a temporary wig out of my cat's fur, but when I tried to photograph him wearing it, the cats became very interested.  In fact, Nemo ended up carrying it off in his mouth and destroying it.  I didn't mind.

For more pictures (including closeups of the fabulous wigs, and Stephen wigless and also with his messy!wig, see my photobucket album.  Do it!!!

"That head of yours will have to come off.  I don't know how, and I don't know precisely how it is attached, but come off it must."

A conversation I had last night with one of my newest CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS!  YES!  I now have Jack 'n Stephen Christmas ornaments!!

There were also many other conversations of a similar nature like:

"Jack, you must hold your arm still.  You must not use your arm.  Jack!  I NEED you to hold your arm still!  You will do very well, but you must not move your arm!"

"Now Maturin, you must not use your leg for a while.  I don't want you to put any weight on it, do you understand?  Now you just lie there and get better, all right?  Jack will keep you company while he rests his arm."

"Oh Maturin, look at you!  What have you done to your clean white shirt?  How did you get that spot there?  I just cleaned it!"

as well as the more ominous:

"Oh I'm sorry Jack.  I'm sorry Jack.  Oh I'm so sorry, I'm sorry!"

And now for the picspam!  First, I bought two Christmas ornaments that seemed most suitable for adaptation.  They were cute in their own right, but I wanted Jack'n Stephen.
