We understand there have been rumors here at The Merry Ghost in regards to a Goblin's pumpkin patch....we acknowledge a full disclosure of events and those individuals involved is now required. And we're delighted to disclose and present:
The curious Pendergast, a Pumpkin Goblin. Pendergast takes great pride in his patch-he challenges any and all to find a greater example of these fine autumn fruits! Pendergast takes full responsibility for his lovely gathering and denies all rumors of Lieselotte Henceforth, the Lumina Witch. (He maintains there's a trick in her name if you say it quickly............) From September through October, Pendergast finds himself quite busy quelling pie rumors and swearing he has nothing to do with the local (short-lived) jack-o-lantern population, though his charges are a bit blue, what with gradually missing many of their friends over the span of a few short weeks.
Pendergast the Pumpkin Goblin is created from painted, aged, muslin. His features are hand-drawn with color-fast artist's grade pencils. His "suit" and dapper striped socks are painted muslin and carefully trimmed out in brown lace. He sports a "cravat" of mulberry paper leaves and a vintage button. Pendergast's nose is a cinnamon stick and his arms are button-jointed. His tiny "jack-o-lantern" is a hand-painted autumn decoration that we systematically destroyed and altered; he also carries a paper leaf wand (which he waves with immense authority!).
All of our work is of our own design and thoughtfully crafted with care--and a great deal of fun.
Signed and Dated.
Thank you for meeting "Pendergast"!
