When I was designing Steampunk Sue, this head was too small, so believing in the waste not want not theory, saved and decided to make into a toddler for daughters classroom. Bud is about the size of a 4 year old. Got his OshKosh overalls from thrift store. His shoes were pink,and had ink scribbles on them, so I dyed them red to cover that. For his legs I lightly stuffed and jointed at the knee, so when he's sitting his legs swing. Hands are articulated so he can hold crayons & books while in school.
His hair is fake fur. I found a baseball cap in dollar store just the right color for adding the symbol of the FSU Seminoles...Rachels Alma Mater. We tell everyone his mother is Steampunk Sue who met his father at Comic Con in Denver, who abandoned them, so Bud is going to live in Florida with Rachel where he knows he'll be loved & cared for.
