Presto Change O!

Postby scumonkey » 20 Apr 2014, 05:50

After scoring an exceptionally nice Doctor puppet by Mary Edwards,
I decided I would reconfigure another doctor that I already owned,
into a policeman- which I sorely needed.
The Doc to be transformed was beautifully carved by Daniel Hanton
I didn't touch the paint on his head, just the hair and clothes.
(hope he doesn't mind :oops: )?!

And here he is all dressed up for his new job!
I was lucky to get a nice badge for his hat from an ebayer in Florida (of all places).
This is the first time I've tried something like this, hope I did it the justice it deserves)?

I also have a pair of boxers I want to embellish, but I wouldn't want to
drastically make them over if they were made by a known carver (I doubt that they were) so...
Here is a pic of one of them, and if anyone can identify the maker I would be most appreciative.

Really nice PC costume. I envy that badge. It is a perfect size. I wonder which part of the uniform it belongs to.? ...
I think you may have to put that belt up a little higher though.

Very nice transformation.

Like CvdC I spotted the Helmet badge right away ...very nice stuff.

Finding things like that the perfect size are the finishing touches that really make all the difference.
I am soon to finish my new Policeman.

Fitting his cap badge into a carved helmet was a real fiddle ..but with the effort I hope
Looking forward to getting him painted soon.
