Comic book illustrator and creator Jill Thompson is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to create an articulated fashion doll of her original creation “Scary Godmother.”
A fully articulated fashion doll of Scary Godmother! And the Boozle! Spooktakular! Like Monster High without the School!
Check out the video below for more details. There are only 3 day’s left in this campaign, so if you want in, now is the time!
Here’s some more information about the project from Jill herself:
I’ve been fortunate to take my creation from books and comics all the way to the Stage and Screen! Now I want to be able to take her to that next step, the place people have been asking me about ever since I wrote the first Scary Godmother Story. I want to create Scary Godmother Stuff! I have a notebook filled with pages and pages of Scary Godmother product ideas and I finally have a way to bring them directly to you….. starting with The Scary Godmother Fashion Doll!
I’ve been working for two years with sculptors and doll clothing designers who have been working from my sketches to create a Scary Godmother Prototype doll that I adore!
I’ve gathered quotes from factories to find out the costs involved to get her into the real world where people can love her as much as I do!
She will be articulated at her head, shoulders, elbows, wrists, ribcage, waist, hips, knees and ankles. Final articulation will be the hidden, unobtrusive articulation found in finer fashion dolls. The joints in our prototype are necessary for the factory to determine where she will be jointed.
She stacks up much taller and curvier than your other fashion dolls that are out there. Have a sandwich, other dolls!
She will have removable wings so you can easily change her clothes.
She will come with her basic costume and we plan on producing several outfits for her in the future! Her tights are real tights and not just painted on her legs, because that would be cheating!
She has fun shoes, She is accessorized with a pumpkin purse, and her ghost cat, The Boozle!
All we need to do now is get her into production. That’s where the crowd funding part comes in.
