29/11/2007 (Day 364) - Kaptain Potato Head

For my penultimate shot it was either this or nudity. I personally think that you've all got off very lightly ...


No photoshop; all of the bits were photographed, glued to thin card, cut out and then stuck to the potato.


No potatoes were harmed in the taking of this picture.

    Seen on your photo stream. (?)

    EXCELLENT. That would be a great toy for my kids. I might have to do that. Except I'd laminate my parts. And I'd probably use their parts. And some cat parts.
  • Gamma Infinity 7y

    VERY cool.
  • WeeRobbie 7y

    Bonkers - but extremely well done and very funny and very creative!
    I hope you're not implying that doing 365 has turned you into a vegetable :-)
    Looking forward to the final shot.....
  • Angus Blacksheep 7y

    Great idea
  • Alan 7y

    Thanks everyone. This was quite fun to do, although harder than I thought it would be.

    Ginger Blue: I look forward to seeing the results if you do make a personal Potato Head set. One thing you will need to think about is how to attach the pieces to the potato; I used BluTak, but then I only needed tham to stay attached long enough to get the picture. You may need something more permanent.

    Just a note: I'm going away this weekend, so whilst I will be taking my Day 365 on 30th November, the upload may not happen for a couple of days. Sorry.

    That's not you! That's King Edward! Mind you, given the ears it could be Prince Charles. ;)

    Did you get mashed afterwards?
  • sosij 7y

    Yeah, love his shoes! Blue tack genius. Good luck for your last day :(
  • Tulse 7y

    Oogh - hurry and cut it up for chips - take the poor creature out of its misery! ;)
  • Faith Spinks 7y

    Were you made into chips for tomorrow's photo?
  • Alan 7y

    : That would have been appropriate, but sadly that's not what happened. I think Kaptain Potato Head ended up being boiled ...

    We kept the limbs and facial features, though :-)
  • Emma Moore 7y
