Just a couple days to go until the first ever Fuggler Event. You can, nay, should buy tickets for it here: http://www.makegoodfestival.com/tickets/
As part of the display, I ordered a metre tall sexy beast Fuggler cardboard cut-out. When it arrived damaged, I was sent a replacement, so now I have two of them (which is excessive in anyone's book). Therefore the first person to come up to me at the event and promise to take photos of the cut-out out in the wild gets to keep it. The idea of someone sat on the Tube with it, taking it home, appeals to me on a very basic level.
io9 covers science, science fiction, and the world of tomorrow. I don't know which of those Fugglers fall under, but I'm glad that they did.
With eerily human eyes, false teeth, and a few choice props, McGettrick creates felt toys that you might not want to watch you sleep
Teddy bears with terrifying human teeth
Pretty excited to see Fugglers featured on techno-culture website Boing Boing.
I know, as drum rolls go that was incredibly excessive. Sorry about that. However, I am pleased to announce that two fugglers now have new owner lined up.
Congrats! Or condolences!
Get in touch if you're one of the winners, and I'll make sure your Fuggler is sent your way.
Greetings Fugglerites. As promised, I am holding a competition to win a custom Fuggler. You can self Fuggle, you can ask for a Fuggler from tv, you can request an animal of your choice, the possibilities are endless!* *The possibilities are not endless. If it's insanely difficult I may not be able to pull it off, and so think of a back up plan or face crushing disappointment. For example, if you wanted Professor X, you are seriously deluded if you think I am constructing a wheelchair from felt. You may have Professor X, lying on the floor after some super villain has thrown him out of his wheelchair though. I'll even make him look a little bit sad about it all.
SO... Originally I was going to do a Guess The Fancy Dress quiz. But then I thought, Mrs McGettrick, you are rubbish at art and slogans. Why not make other people do the hard work for you, and disguise it cunningly as a competiton? INSPIRED!
So... Think of a slogan to help sell my Fugglers. Or make a poster, or manipulate one of the photos I have here on facebook or on my Etsy page. I reserve the right to shamelessly use the hell out of all the images/slogans used to promote Global Fuggler Domination, but I won't use them directly on anything for sale. Unless you want me to, and we can split the profits and go to Vegas and get crazy and wake up all married and surrounded by police forensic units, and be all like, whoops a daisy... (Don't tell Mr McGettrick)
To get the ball rolling, I experimented a while back with an online slogan generator. It came up with "DO IT WITH FUGGLER". I'm sure this will attract a certain client base, but one that makes me feel a little dirty inside, and I am NOT MODIFYING MY FUGGLERS AND ENABLING THIS AVENUE.
I've also included a poster my friend Ray made, above. He has set the bar very high.
Here endeth the lesson.
