Dobby...the House Elf



Dobby is one of the characters that I have secretly yearned to create since we started making several One of a Kind characters from Harry Potter... this gentle little fellow seemed like the Cherry on top of the cake to me and though we have many other character we will be making...I could wait no longer. With these photos it is a classic case of 'Photos do not do him justice' In person he is so small and peaceful looking...photos with a good camera make him seem to close and in your face. He is fully sculpted over armature and if standing would be no bigger than 3 inches tall (but I have given him a firm order NOT to stand on the stool!!) He proudly holds his little 'Gift' of a sock.... he is now his own House Elf..... a man about town!!
I will be putting him on ebay later today after Richard shoots a couple more shots ...
Hope you like this little fellow as much as I.... it will be hard to part with him....
Hugs,
Jodi

Oh Jodi, I just love him to pieces. He's perfect and looks so alive! He can breath I know it! Attach this warning: May cause triple take type neck injuries from trying to catch a glimpse of him moving!

I'd have to hold on to him a bit longer before sending him on his way (Who am I kidding, I'd keep him and carry him everywhere in my pocket! ha ha) No doubt he will bring some serious happiness wherever he goes! Fabulous and amazing!

Hugs!!! Love too!

I don't just want, I NEED a Dobby doll, soft and cuddly with floppy ears. In would never leave the house without it, wear it in a sling close to my heart. I am in love with Dobby.
