Stars and Stripes Skelly

Posting one more piece before the weekend..."Stars and Stripes Skelly." This little guy is the brother of the other two patriotic skelly figures and finishes the triumvirate. He is every bit the patriot they are, and proudly wears his Halloween-colored patriotic attire.


He wears a huge grin and is shown hanging on to his inflated star so it doesn't soar into the sky. He has a large collar with stars, a bow tie with stars and a vest with stars and selected striped pants to match his lovely top hat. (Those skelly boys really know how to put a patriotic outfit together!!)


He really is quite a dapper little guy!

Hope you enjoy him and have a great weekend!!

Thank you Sonia...have a great weekend!!

Allison,
I hadn't seen anyone do patriotic skelly figures either, and that is part of the reason I wanted to do a few...I really like the idea of figures being multi-holiday so that they can be left out longer. Of course I leave my OOAK Halloween and Christmas out 365!! I just love them to much to put them away.

Thank you both!!
Laurie
