Sir Steampunk with monocle and/or mustache, a handcrafted garden yard art sculpture from an up-cycled plastic flamingo. A unique Victorian gift for that formal gardener; this dapper dude looks great in formal Victorian gardens and funky gardens alike. An unusual home & garden decor sculpture. He's a reinvented pink plastic flamingo base covered with weather resistant paints, paper/aluminum foil structure, recycled materials, gears/wires, faux-copper make up the rest of the disguise. He has no real metal on him except for some wires and recycled metal and wooden gears. Steam Punk the future as imagined by the past (Scientific romantic fiction).

Sir Steampunk is quite proper in his optional top hat and monocle. And now with the option of a classy mustache! Each Steam Punk flamingo made will be slightly different because they are as unique as the parts they made from. These are handmade by me when ordered and completed in the order purchased to be fair to everyone. They take 3 to 4 weeks to complete and 3 to 9 days to deliver USPS domestic.

***Due to a large number of orders at this time, please check the Making/Shipping queue on my policies page before you order. If this an order for a special ocassion (e.g. birthdays holidays etc). contact me to see if I can accommodate your special date: https://www.etsy.com/shop/CedarMoon/policy

IMPORTANT INFORMATION, PLEASE READ ALL THE BORING DETAILS:
I've tried to answer the questions you might ask, however if you have any other questions after reading this, contact me by clicking the contact button under my name:

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?:
I only keep a few Flamingo Incognitos in stock. Usually they are handmade by me when they are ordered and completed in the order that they were purchased to be fair to everyone. Custom orders will be placed in a queue available to the custom buyer via a link. Flamingo Incognitos are always unique because they are handmade one at a time and are never exactly like the last one…truly one of a kind art.

Please allow approximately three to four weeks for me to create them before I ship them. Some take longer than others to create due to complexity, drying times and finishes that resist the weather. **IF THIS IS FOR A SPECIAL OCCASION CONVO ME! Please contact me through Etsy ASAP and I will try to work with your time schedule. The final UV finish coating (to protect them from rain and sun) is dependent on the humidity and drying time varies with the weather. I will not ship until they are completely dry. I don't want to pack and ship while they are sticky.

If you would like to see some photos of the process and explanation of why it takes so long to make, please visit my ‘Shop Info’ page.

*** VERY IMPORTANT SHIPPING NOTE***
The Shipping Profiles are a bit confusing. In the USA one Flamingo ships for $19, two ship for $25 (they will fit in a slightly larger box and with more padding). Convo me if you want more than 2 shipped and I'll estimate the price for the extra boxes. Thanks for your understanding.

HOW LONG DOES SHIPPING TAKE?
See your receipt for estimated shipping date. I usually ship on Mondays and Fridays. Please allow approximately 10 days for USPS delivery. I WILL ALWAYS KEEP YOU INFORMED ON DELAYS OR EARLY SHIPPING. Convo me if you need a rush order, if you would like more than one or need your Flamingo sooner. Shipping costs do not reflect multiple items per box accurately so convo me multiple shipping. *I CAN SHIP ANYWHERE however if the destination is not in our shipping profile, please convo me for an estimate.

WHAT’S UNDERNEATH IT ALL?:
Other than the basic pink flamingo beneath it all there is household plastic leftovers, post consumer recycled plastics, artfully sculpted aluminum foil, industrial strength tapes, waterproof glues, objects d’art from the studio junk drawer, creative theatrical use of outdoor-friendly, quality spray paint and large doses of imagination. The speckling is not glitter but a theater trick of speckling with paints (OK, ok…some dragons have glitter “snot” to represent fire-breathing).

These birdies have been tested in the Pacific Northwest weather (rain). They come with separate metal legs. They are art pieces, not toys and not meant for children to play with. Although weather and UV resistant, they are also not intended to survive really severe, outdoor weather. Since they are, after all, tropical birds down deep, it is also suggested that they be kept warm and dry during cold stormy weather.

Care has been made to make sure colors do not fade (a UV coating) but it is not guaranteed due to the variety of parts and paints used and severe weather conditions. They are not tornado, hurricanes, tsunami, earthquake toddler or small dog resistant. Rough handling may cause cracks in the paint and substructure that could introduce water, which may lead to some paint peeling. Remember these are up-cycled, recycled and only ‘water resistant’. Think of them like a rainbow or a soap bubble; fun and pretty while they last but they don’t last forever … except in stories.

DO YOU MAKE CUSTOM FLAMINGOS?
Yes, Custom Flamingo Incognitos are also available and price depends on how complex your imagination is; let’s talk. How about wedding birds, school mascots, a replica of great aunt Suzie, your boss, a Harry Potter interpretation, your pet pug or a wizard of OZ? Anything is possible, however please do not request copyrighted characters. All of CedarMoon’s Flamingo Incognito designs are fully copyrighted.

HOW BIG ARE THEY?
On their metal legs he stands about 32 inches high. Diagonally from tail to snout is approx. 24 inches. Height from top head to bottom of tail (vertical) they are is about 18 inches. If you were to lay him down and measure his thickness, he would be about 6 inches thick. You can slightly adjust the wings (if they have wings) slightly to bend outwards so he can fly after you take him out of the box...but I haven't had any of them fly away yet. Storks and Herons have wire in their wings. If a spine or curl or flame is bent, a hairdryer on low can help straighten it.
