A few weeks ago, The Angry Gnome saw an exciting announcement on Oma Linda’s Facebook!
“Hey, Martin!” said The Angry Gnome, “You and the guys need to come up with something ‘Altered’ for Oma Linda’s Oz Celebration. Don’t ask me nothin’ cause I Don’t Know! I can’t keep up with Dames and their Crazy ideas! Figure it out yourselves...”
“Hah! I don’t know why but I keep thinking about Toto! He’s one of my favorite characters!” says Ichabob.
“Yeh, when Toto puts up that little paw during ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow, I just get all melty,” sighs Horlicks.
“Look..here we can get some ideas. He’s got sticky-up ears...sort of dark colors...”
“Yeh, but he’s gotta be a bit different...can’t look exactly like this...”
“Let’s get all the stuff we need!” shouts Trinculo, “I’ll start the needle felting...”
“We’ve got plenty of felting Batt. I’ll help you,”says Ichabob.
“I’ll work on the costume,” says Flibbet
“I’ll handle the Mod Podge,”says Sam, “I LOVE this stuff!”
“I’m gonna find some Steampunk type stuff,” says Horlicks.
“And I’m gonna open up the Paper Clay and make some dog bones!” says Martin.
The Gnomes worked for a long time..humming and wiring and poking and fitting and measuring, UH OH- breaking Three felting needles, and drinking TWO bottles of California Champagne so they would have the needed corks! Finally the last minute accessories were added...
And here is their Steampunk Toto- Witch Hunter!!!!!
Toto has a French Escargot Tong for one of his arms and a pail for water, in case of a Witch! He has some supplies in the back of his coat and a convenient carrier for his dog bones.
And now for the Drawing Info to win this needle felted Steampunk Toto...
All you need to do is leave a comment that you would like to have your name put in the Hat for the Drawing....to take place March 29th.
