Published Pumpkin Head Doll

Stan the Pumpkin Man

Here is another guy going into my Etsy Shop:


Stan the Pumpkin Man
by Carly Smith
Stan is soft a sculpture doll.  He stands 20 inches tall and about 11 inches when sitting.  His little head is soft sculpted into a pumpkin shape and he wears a small felt hat embellished with vintage style tinsel. His facial features are hand painted and his eyes peek out through glass pupils of highest quality and made in Germany.   His body is made of tea stained muslin that has been stuffed and weighted as he is a shelf sitter. 

Stan is a jointed doll in the same fashion that Teddy Bears are jointed. There are five moveable joints allowing him to be placed in many positions. The head, both arms and both legs are fitted with durable fiberboard discs using the lock nut system for jointing.

 His arms are colored with acrylic paint and are lightly wired for posing and holding very light objects. In addition to being jointed, legs are wired too and are very helpful in posing him in multiple sitting positions. His weighted bottom also assists him to remain balanced when sitting. Sometimes, during shipping, the weight bag inside may shift a little and one may have to set the doll down with a little “thump” or “bump” to his bottom to reposition the weights.

His shirt is fashioned from tea stained orange polka dot print fabric.  He wears a colorful ruffled, five layered collar around his neck. He wears a vest made of stained prim osnaburg fabric that has been embellished with hand appliquéd jack o lanterns in much the same fashion as a penny rug. His black and tan checked pants are fastened with a simple jute twine.
Stan sits perched on one of my large prim pumpkins and has two little owl friends that I picked up at a craft show some time ago so the crafter is unknown.

Stan may go home with you for an adoption fee of 225.00.  Travel fare is 15.00

My Best Always,
