Don't fear the Mini Reaper
I really appreciate the irony of having something so terrifying be so small and cute. That's why I created this Mini Reaper. That and the fact that I'm not willing to spend the money to buy a Kid Reaper from Kid Robot.
This figure is very small because it was originally a Dunny. I resculpted and hand-painted it, and I also sewed a cloak from some scrap black velvet. Every goth should have some scrap black velvet lying around.
Shown here without his velvet cloak. I plan on creating a scythe for him very soon. My wife likes the Day of the Dead feel that this figure has.
