Morbidly Adorable Octo-Munny


Art: Morbidly Adorable Octo-Munny by Artist Misty Monster (Benson)
Good morning everyone!! It's a wonderful time here at Morbidly Adorable Creations! I recently dropped off this darling little Munny of the Sea for the Record Exchange's Annual Munny Auction! She was so much fun to create! She is being auctioned off with all proceeds going to Radio Boise -- community-programmed radio! Tune in on 89.9 FM! The Morbidly Adorable Octo-Munny was dreamily sculpted and magically painted as a one of a kind piece -- all done by me! She is the only the second Munny Doll I've ever customized. (You may see last year's piece here: http://gossamerfaery.livejournal.com/2010/10/23/) I have such an affinity for water creatures, the octopus in particular, that I hope to see someone give this eight legged wonder a great home. Don't miss your chance!

Artist: Misty Benson (me!)
Munny's Name: Octo-Munny (or Munny of the Sea?! LOL)
Materials: Mixed Media (Acrylic Paint and Paperclay) I believe she is about 9.5" tall and 10.5" long from tentacle to tentacle.
About the Munny: This Munny of the Sea loves all things sweetly spooky, spitefully cute, and most of all, morbidly adorable! She has a penchant for shiny things and stuffed animals that frown! With one tentacled arm, the Morbidly Adorable Oct-Munny adds pretty coral to her hair while she clutches her beloved one-eyed bear with the other!Remember, here at Morbidly Adorable creations, Life leaves her feeling a little haunted but always enchanted. She lives in a place where beauty borders on strange and the strange is beautiful. Take her tentacle. Come in and play. Just make sure you leave all rational thoughts at the surface.

'What is a Munny?' you may be asking yourself!

The toy company Kidrobot who produces limited edition vinyl toys, created the Munny -- a blank character for artists to customize by drawing, painting, piercing, you name it!

This is how my Munny looked when I first received it! It was completely blank and up to me to decide what to do with it:)



I hope you enjoy this cutie pie! The Morbidly Adorable Octo-Munny is looking for someone who will cultivate her love of beautiful things along with her need to comfort the broken souls of forgotten toys!
