Fairy Rings and Monstrous Things

The FeeJee Mermaid Sideshow Barker Box

After exhibiting the FeeJee Mermaid at numerous events over the past few years you can imagine that I became tired of explaining what she was, where she came from etc, so I had an idea...

I found an antique church collection box and installed some mp3 electrikery to create the 'Automated Sideshow Barker'.  Just insert an old English penny and an informative tale ensues!

Here are a few additional images of completed Feejee Mermaids.  Anyone familiar with my Mummifed Fairy Workshop kit I funded via Kickstarter a few years back may be interested to know that a Feejee Mermaid project is also in the pipeline so watch this space.
