Piccolo (1)Migli

Picolo,  is a happy little fellow. He is 7” long. Made from lycra spandex and stuffing. His eyes are buttons and his song is somewhat like a baritone giggle. He is stalking Migly, but like many males of his species is mesmerised by her beauty. Oh my! What will the night bring? Dreams and fanciful trill and croak. Calling the lustful lover.

Migly the spotted fuzz fringe toady is 6” long. She is made from socks, stuffing and buttons for her eyes. Her soprano arias are a wonder to experience. She is rather hot to mingle with the Picolo. She vibrates her shoulder fringes which drives the boys wild.

ME BE ME BE (4)
MEBE, she is a special species of silly beetle, Serenensis Sillifus. Made from a hand built armature. She has a shell of metallic pig suede, beaded edges and head feelers. Her legs are posable and covered in black furry material. Her upper and lower shell designs mark her as the queen of her colony. Maybe she’ll climb into your window tonight. Her antique glass button eyes see everthing.  She has a story to tell I’m sure.
