Checkout this amazingly cool Kickstarter from artist Jill Thompson.
Halloween’s coming up, be sure to get your gear before it’s all gone!
From the Kickstarter page:
A fully articulated fashion doll of Scary Godmother! And the Boozle! Spooktakular! Like Monster High without the School!
WHO ARE YOU, LADY?
I’m Jill Thompson, comic book creator/illustrator. You might know me from my art on such comic book titles as Wonder Woman, The Sandman, The Invisibles, Finals or Beasts of Burden, to name a few.
Or you might know me from my wrestling gear and t shirt designs for WWE Superstars and Champions Daniel Bryan and CM Punk. But hopefully you know me from my own creation,The Scary Godmother!!
WHAT ARE WE HERE FOR?
This Kickstarter is to fund the production of a Scary Godmother Fashion Doll. Kind of like Barbie but much, much cooler. 😉 She’s bigger, better, redder, curlier, pointier, magicky-er and more meow than your usual dolls.
SO GIVE ME THE OVERVIEW OF THIS SCARY GODMOTHER, WHERE DID SHE COME FROM?
I created Scary Godmother as a gift for my first niece when she was born. I wanted to make a book for the baby and I also wanted to be her godmother. But, I thought about me in my black motorcycle jacket, pointy toed shoes and wild, red curls standing in the back of a church and mused out loud “HA! I’d be a pretty scary Godmother!” And it was one of those ‘light goes on’ moments…I immediately had a picture in my head of a goth, witchy type of fairy, flitting about doing Halloween things for people…I had to draw her right away! Once I drew her, stories and a supporting cast of characters started popping into my head! It was a runaway train of images I had to put down on paper! I teamed up with Sirius Entertainment to produce series of graphic novels and comics that were first published in the late 1990’s. All of the Scary Godmother Stories are currently being published for your enjoyment by Dark Horse Comics. If you’re not familiar with all of her adventures, you might want to check them out by visiting your local comic book shop or the Dark Horse Comics website, as well as other places online like Amazon.
