Hi ho!

Dearth (Nadir) here, otherwise known as Alex Newborn.

Well, we've got a brand-new forum with much easier photo capabilities, and I thought I would go through my old 21-page thread and group all my best photos here in a new thread without you guys having to link somewhere else.

From the Muppet Show:

Kermit in the O diorama (middle of O is hinged and shuts magnetically)


Group shot of various customs


"Simon Smith and his Amazing Dancing Bear"


I separated the Snowths so they could go on either side, the way they ought to be!


Princess Loina and Dearth Nadir... he's made from a daredevil Gonzo figure, a Darth Vader PEZ dispenser and a lot of Sculpey


Years later, I gave Dearth an alternate head for the way he looks in the credits, and finally made his 'Crypto-Anagon Transmitter' accessory


Sgt. Link companion piece for Patrol Bear Fozzie


Cheesecake munchin' on a cheesecake munchin' on a cheesecake!


Valerie Harper episode


Culinary Catastrophe Kitchen


Improved backdrop for the Newsman


"Just for the halibut!"


Say it with me... "Gonzo fiddles while George Burns!"


George Burns in the wings watching Fozzie's "Wotcher" number


custom "Pearlie" Fozzie (detail of back of coat)


Kermit and Jim sing a banjo duet in front of the "Henrietta's Wedding" backdrop


(a Fisher-Price stick puppet Kermit, minus the legs, gives the Jim Henson figure one of his proposed-but-cancelled accessories...)

And in case you ever wondered, here's why the Gingerbread Men didn't make more appearances...

Miscellaneous:

Muppet Babies with backdrop


Some hand-painted vinyl Sesame Street figurines. I did these in 1998, awaiting the birth of my first son.


modified Colorforms backdrop for Sesame Street Bendems


Dinosaurs


extra Frog Scouts


This is why customizers don't buy expensive re-decos of existing molds. Hand-painted by yours truly.

Comparison to regular figure


Likewise, this is just a Rowlf that I bought in 2010 for $7.50 on eBay, and then spray-painted him white and grey.


"Round Robin" sidekick for Adventure Kermit


Faux stone pedestal for Gonzo idol

No. That one, which I neglected to specify as mine in the title, can still be used for general discussion of customs and dioramas, and for anyone to showcase their works.

This one, though, is more the way I wanted my personal thread to look originally, but the old forum wouldn't allow me the flexibility. So it seemed like the perfect opportunity to start over from the beginning and get things a bit more organized (like grouping the pics in a pseudo-chronological sequence).
