You are on a great roll with these! I like the swan especially - great for a MOC. The jester looks very convincing as well... nice mix of colors to make a good jester costume. The red headpiece is also quite convincing.

Yet again, a great character. I, like everyone else, think the hat is really creative. I'll be looking forward to more in the future.

I agree with you. Even though I personally don't like the head on any fig, this is a great use of it.

Very nice figs, I reallly like the different pieces you've chosen to make each fig unique. I also really like your animals.

Ok. I don't know what in the world the jester's hat is; I see a red epaulette... but what the rest of it?

Hey Paradox! The rest of the hat is a scarf neckgear, inverted. I had trouble distiguishing it too at first.

Here is an exampleof a "real-life" jester hat (although it's something of a modern version).

I'd say that this is one of the non-custom hats I've seen for a jester - pretty creative use of pieces to make an uncommon hat.

Thanks Otto and Wunz (though Wunz more correctly answered my questions, so he gets double-points for those keeping score at home). :D

I'm glad that you all like the jester's hat ! :D
It was hard to find something appropriate for it.

Now the next character is the type of guy that you don't want to be confronted with during your life; the hangman!
Right here, he's preparing the cord for his next victim...
