...almost done, and Aunt Phlegmmy's plumb tuckered out...
I had to spend the first half of the day salvaging a saggy gun, which really derailed the whole process. So, I'm happy that I'll at least have it finished and have a gun that's not trying to point at the earth's core.
It's finally finished, such as it is. In some ways it's worse than I planned, and in other ways it's better than I hoped. In any case, it is what it is, and within about 6 hours, it's going to be smashed to bits, anyhoo.
So here's the final flourish - exploding-confetti-Osama-head peeping out the hatch, which I just applied. I generally eschew hot-glue gun for this type project, but yesterday's derailment called for the immediacy of hot glue. I'm pleased how the egg cranium turned out, and the mohair yarn for beard gave a great texture. I'm also quite pleased with the turban.
By the way, the "torso" and hatch lid are made from a Starbucks™ corrugated cup wrapper and a cup lid. I'd like to think someone would be a little irked by my creative license, but that's just the kind of hairpin I am.
