Fiberglass and Feathers

A new project has landed on our worktable and the feathers are flying.  It's a one-of-a-kind figure we're making for the D23 Expo auction in August.  

Any guesses who this is going to turn out to be??

He is going to be the Peg Leg Pirate Parrot, outside the POTC attraction.

The Tiki Room Barker Bird?

Well let's see, I have your Tiki Room Barker Bird from the 50th. I think I will throw a vote for the Pirate Parrot. Where do I put my name on the list to buy!

Hmmm.... based on the color scheme and the oval shape on his chest, I'm thinking he looks a lot like old Peglegged Pete from the entrance to Walt Disney World's Pirates of the Caribbean

Looking forward to seeing him/her finished :-D

To be honest, Kevin, I think this sculpture of José Carioca is a bit off-model. Maybe he'll look better when you put the hat and bowtie on him and stick a big cigar in his beak. What's the matter - haven't you been to Baia? :)

Any way for people that can't attend to buy this(aside from ebay for ten times the sale price!)???

Looks great! I hope it's a larger edition size than the ol' Hatbox Ghost I didn't win last time... ;)
