Hey all, just finished my second VM custom! I've had this figure for a couple months with about a bajillion ideas going through my head (and more coming to me all the time). Well it seems the Christmas season has inspired me, so I seized it and went with it. And I wanted to get this finished and posted before the holiday, so yay I did it! lol :P
The other night I watched "The Muppet Christmas Carol", and it just struck me to base my next figure off of that. This is definitely my favorite Muppet movie, I just love it and I even have the soundtrack. "One More Sleep 'til Christmas" is one of my favorite songs from the film. The specific design for this custom comes from the last shot of the song where Kermit is looking up at the moonlit sky as a shooting star passes by. So I took the different elements from that shot and incorporated them into the design. The base is a nighttime sky covered with stars (I even added the shooting star on the back!) each having a touch of glitter. I then gave it moon highlighting and a festive scarf just like Kermit has. The holly berry was the final element, and I added that because I thought it would look nice and I like how it draws the colors of the scarf to another part of the figure.
Hope you all like it, and Merry Christmas!
"After all there's only one more sleep 'til Christmas."
