  • Bethene's 2011 prop entry

    well guys, here it is , such as it is, I was going to make something else and my sewing machine would not cooperate, so scrambled and came up with this little guy,meet:
    Slim Kringle, Kris Kringle's anorexic brother,, At the North Pole, every one wanted Kris, AKA, Santa, to be chubby and jolly, so kept bringing him food all the time, food that was also supposed to be for old Slim, but was brought to Kris instead,,, after many years of this, Slim is a skinny guy , but still helps out his brother with the toys and elves when ever he can,
    (goofy story, but what ya gonna do?)
    items used,
    2 pieces felt, 35 cents each= 70cents
    small glasses, $1.25
    google eyes, from a bag from dollar store, $1.00( i know it is only cents, but figured, what the heck,
    red fabric, $7.00 a yard, 1/4 yard aprox. $2.80
    fur scraps, $2.00
    beard : from garage sale ornament, $1.00
    trims, $1.50
    buttons,, $1.50
    holly leaves:with berries - $ 1.00
    jingle bells, $1.00
    5 glue sticks, .50cents
    cardboard shipping tube, free from work, not sure what price to put, but way under price anyway,,,,,,,

      How cool is that? Kind of like a Laurel and Hardy Santa brother team, right? Pretty nice of slim to still help after being left out on the food. heh

      Nice job, B!
      People really act weird at Christmas time. After all, what other time of year do you sit in front of a dead tree in the living room and eat nuts and sweets out of your socks?

        Great looking prop, Bethene! He looks like he could actually be Santa's brother with those glasses and the beard.
        Nice job!
