That phrasing is required by Mr. Cthulhu.
Still, I love Mr. Cthulhu. I just have to figure how to make him practical.
Princess Froglips didn't come out quite as nicely as I'd hoped either. I think it's because, excellent artist that she is, she somehow made the pink-lipped frog elegant. I'm only good at cute. Trying to copy elegant. (Which works about as well as you'd expect.)
And trying to replicate those eyes was not easy either. The back feet was my failed attempt at Fluevog style heels. (That's her weakness, if you ever need bribery material.) I should have just made froggy toes. I gave it to her anyway, thinking she might be able to dangle it somewhere at her craft shows for a Princess Froglips reference. Maybe set it somewhere and fill the mouth with business cards. (The silver crown is because I bought a scrap leather lot off Ebay to replenish my stock and it came with metallic silver, but not metallic gold.)
But that's my craftiness for the week. I'm still planning to make a larger version of Octopurse. I want to make Mr. Cthulhu functional. And I want to figure out a zombie purse. I'm also tempted to try again with Supersize and figure out how to add a cape and/or mask. Maybe embroider a giant 'S' on his chest -- for Supersize, not Superman.
Coming close to Christmas means I need to bake cookies.
