William...a very happy Pumpkinhead!!!
William seems to be a favorite as he always finds a reason to be such a happy little guy! William is part Paper Mache and part soft sculpture doll. He stands 20-inches tall and about 13-inches when sitting. His body is made of muslin that has been stuffed and weighted for sitting. William’s arms and legs are detailed in acrylic paint and lightly wired for posing and holding very light objects. His legs can also be positioned to sit in different ways. In addition, he displays very well standing with the use of a doll stand. Sometimes, after shipping, the weight bag inside shifts a little and one may have to set the doll down with a little “thump” to reposition the weights.
William’s hat is fashioned as a leaf cap from paper clay and hand painted just like his head. He wears a wide ruffled collar with five layers of fabric that color coordinates with the rest of his attire. His fashionable shirt is in a green pumpkin themed fabric with a contrasting closure of black lace, black and orange decorative trim and shiny glass beads. Popping out of his sleeves are leaves trimmed with black and orange fabric and shiny black tinsel.
His orange and black checked pants are fastened with a shiny ribbon and cuffed in a coordinating but contrasting fabric. His little boots are larger around than his skinny little legs, and are accented with black, shiny tinsel and little bright faceted gold beads. William carries a rather Large Jack-o-lantern to light his way at night.
