Menacing Masked Bandits
I have been working on this masked bandit series. It was nice to make sweet dolls for sweet, sweet people, but it has been extremely fun to make some villainous weirdos. I imagine them as a team of bank robbers. It cracks me up to picture them trying to outrun the law with no legs and stubby, awkwardly-placed feet.
I'll be posting them in my Etsy shop as I write their stories out. Burt's is done. Here you go:
Burt is a part of a team of masked, menacing bandits. He considers himself the master mind and he never has a shortage of heist plans, most of which involve duct tape. He sticks out amongst his crew because his mask is fuzzy with bunny ears and a menacing unibrow. He made up a rouse about it having to do with his love of "carrots" (diamond carats), which is half-true because he deeply loves shiny diamonds and has fantasies of wearing large diamond rings on each of his fingers and toes. But, the real reason for the bunny mask is that it covers his delicate ears which get horribly uncomfortable in the chilly air-conditioned banks. He's sure the bank presidents keep the air set so low as a way to deter him from his robbing shenanigans.
He is available here.
