Newest Sock Monsters (February)

I realized this week that in my attempts to keep up with the demand for the Nubbins, I haven't made any new Sock Monsters to replace the ones that have been sold...and my Sock Monster population has gotten pretty low. So I tried to make a point of making a few new Sock Monsters this week (in addition to more Nubbins)

This is the Striped Galliwumpf...(as opposed to the Spotted Galliwumpf).

I decided this one gets the recent Give-Away winner's captcha name "Zogra". She looks very Amazon-ish to me. I love her hair. It kind of looks like cornrows. Normally all my monster hair ends up being pigtails, so I liked that I figured out this technique that makes the hair turn out a little different.

This little one never got the chance to be named, since she was snapped up last night at the Spot art show. The little girl that picked her out had a very hard time choosing which monster she wanted. For a while, her final choices were between this one and Zogra...but she ultimately went with the pink pigtailed monster.

I always love your sock monsters. THeir mouths are getting better. I like lips and hair. It really gives them personality. Sorry I did not get to "The SPOT", but I'm not sure I know how to get there at night....ha ha.
