My Octobabies have quite a story to tell! It starts out "Sometimes when a girl and a cephalopod love each other very much..."

Actually, they do have quite a tale. The "baby" is an antique German bisque porcelain doll. These were dug up on the grounds of an old factory in Thuringa which was active from 1880-1920. Almost all the dolls recovered were broken in one way or another, but it seemed a shame to let them go to waste. Clearly, what they needed was legs. Lots of legs. And some cephalopod friends to guide them, since most of them had cracked heads!

This particular fellow has a fetching octopus bonnet. The octopi and tentacles are made of polymer clay. He stands about 3 1/2 inches tall. Each octobaby is totally one of a kind (I will be adding several more over the next few weeks. They are signed on the bottom.
