Character one: a horn player

Standard

The hands and feet get attached

This is the try-out pair of hands (in white gloves) and booted feet going into action.

What big hands you’ve got

and short trousers over meat pie shaped bootees

and a rather startled look – ah yes, I failed to say that we’re improvising with all the instruments

Nice bit of fingering going on there but no keys to finger at the moment

Full figure: no shirt sleeves and horribly bulky cummerbund but both will be covered by yet to be made tail coat – note to self any other cummerbunds needed to be produced with thin fabric not ribbon.  He also needs some buttons down the front of his shirt, don’t you think?  I wonder if I can stick something on the cuffs too.

Well it looks like one tail coat to be made and it’s probably worthwhile having a go at four more sets of hands and feet for the other fellas.  Wish me luck 😉

ps:  Our friend here is built up and joined together with pipe cleaners, wadding and lengths of scrap fabric wrapped around his shape.  His hair is boucle yarn with the core thread that holds it together removed and the ‘wool’ bit combed out with an old toothbrush, his braces are 1:12 furniture or curtain trim and, of course the horn is a hose pipe and funnel.
