The thunder rumbled then a lightening flash!
It struck the coffin with a mighty crash.
Something sinister slept within,
Condemned to darkness and a life of sin.
His fingers stretch and eyes open wide,
At last his time to walk outside.
You must try to run, you must try to hide!
For he means to catch you and make you his bride!
I fear no matter what you do,
You will fall victim to Nosfuratu.
Nosfuratu is a six inch tall vampire bear. His head is grey mohair shaded with pastels. He has glass eyes and a silk nose. His head is jointed on to a velvet body with an internal wire frame. I have copied the shape of the original Nosferatu in the original film. He wears midnight blue velvet trousers and has black velvet shoes. His velvet shirt has a lace ruff and cuffs. He has a silk cumberbund and bow tie. His velvet cape is lined in vintage satin. I have embelished it with an antique chain.He comes with his own coffin made from paper mache. I have covered it in wood effect cotton and painted on top.Inside there is a padded velour lining. The viewing hole is embelished with a skull bead and a little bat sits on top.
I hope he makes you smile.
Hugs Diane xx
