The Funky Flamingo Cloth Doll Contest

The challenge is to create an original pattern for a sexy flamingo doll. Our customer, June Pierceall, describes the doll as follows:

“I can see this flamingo made of pink satin or a pink glittery lame fabric. Really tacky!!! On top of the head would be some pink feathers or something spiky. She would need long eyelashes, eye makeup and sun glasses down on her beak. There would also need to be some sort of stuffed bra top to give her some big boobs. This would be of some glitzy fabric also. The legs would need to be really long and skinny encased in black lace. A sitting doll could have some sort of high heel shoe. This might be more difficult with a standing doll.”

The object was to see who could create the ultimate tacky flamingo adhering as closely as possible to June’s description above!

The votes are in and the winners identified below!
