Meet Byron, your new room mate! Byron enjoys a good old fashioned cocktail party, he loves a mojito!
He’s made from 100% natural unbleached calico, beard and hair made from felted dyed 100% merino wool, clothes from stretch jersey and cotton and painted facial features. His chest hair is cotton embroidery thread, as are his nipples and his fig leaf is made of felt (he says it’s softer on the skin)
He’s the largest doll I do (currently) at 22 cm tall, which gives him more to love!
He’s a man of simple requests and asked me to show you his list of needs:
“Here’s list of things to do to best look after me:
Please don’t put me in a washing machine, if I get dirty gently wipe with a damp cloth or sponge (and I mean lightly, I have sensitive skin!). This won’t work with my hair or beard so gently try to get out dirt with a damp cotton bud trying to stay with the direction of the hair.
I try very hard to stay still when being posted but if my hair is a bit untidy just use a bit of hairspray on your finger and smooth down any stragglers. A gentleman needs to look his finest after all.
Kids are cute but I don’t like playing with them (my short legs mean I can’t run that fast) so try to keep me away from those under 3, not due to loose parts but to keep me safe from drool (and being eaten).
Try not to keep me in my bag too long at a time, the dark space makes me sad and lonely. Maybe place me around different places in your home, I like a change of scenery every so often.
Other than that I’m an easy roommate, thanks for letting me stay!”
