    His name is Starkley, and he is now more or less finished.
    i bought him from the whatnot workshop at FAO Schwarz a couple months ago, and have been shopping around for things to buy to make him how I want him to look. And just today i put the finishing touches on with the legs. (i'm also still looking around for a smaller hat) the shirt i bought for him just babies sizes etc.
    I also just put together clear arm rods, to use when performing him
    I'm still searching for a character/voice for him, but im kind of thinking a type of failed musician still trying to find his way

    Wow, he looks really cool. You should upload some videos once you figure out his character. The 80's failed musician sounds like a good call!

    the legs are from an old My Twin doll of my sisters, and there just attached to the inside front of him. so i can still fit my hand in normally

    put some glasses on him, if you want, and he'd look great!

    I'm curious: do you have a picture from the original Whatnot? (as in: when you bought him?)
