Count Duckula

I've just had word that Count Duckula has landed at his new home so am able to blog him.

Blimey, me and he have had issues - so much so that he is almost (but not quite) a year late birthday gift! But this week, don't know what it was - I looked at him on the shelf, he looked at me and all of a sudden he was made!

I knew that Virgina wanted a duckie, preferably black and red to match her bathroom, with a True Blood theme. Didn't quite manage the True Blood... but a dashing vampire duck he is anyway.

I've just realised he is the first one where I haven't added a bow round the neck but I didn't think he needed it - all his decorations (tattoo's - he's a hard vampire duckie!) are velvety flocked - the ones on his side hopefully simulate his wings - Count Duckula gotta be able to fly, man!

Am so glad Virginia liked him, must admit next to Alice & Coraline duckies - he's one of my favourites :)

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Wonderful. Did you use a small rubber duck as the basis?
    I did a duct tape duck at Christmas and got so stuck up with the stuff.

  3. I like this...you can totally see the flocking on his tattoos :)
    Stupid me, I went to check out the other duckies and when I saw the Alice one I was thinking, that doesn't look like Alice in Wonderland? DERRRR! Sorry! Haha!

  8. He's amazing. Do you remember a song called the Sinister Ducks? Done by at least part of Bauhaus, I think...

    "Sneering and whispering and stealing your cars,
    Reading pornography, smoking cigars!
    Ducks. Ducks. Quack-quack. Quack-quack."

  12. 1) He is awesome!
    2) Did the cartoon 'Count Duckula' exist in the UK? I've not got the theme song in my head and it won't leave.
