The challenge was set as, must be fat Elvis and must have the eagle jumpsuit.
The biggest challenge was adding a few pounds to the doll, and having him still fit the stand. The extra "fluff" was made with a bit of teddy bear stuffing in the jump suit. The next biggest challenge was the "rhinestone" eagle motif. For that inherited tubes of fabric paint!
The hair is hands down my favorite part on this doll. I re-rooted in a little left over black hair up front for the quiff, flocked the sideburns, and concrete hair lacquered the lot in place.
Complete with box he cuts quite the zombie scene! (at some point I just need to make him a zombie chimp for a pet)
