Spudnik: A Steampunk Mr. Potato Head

Spudnik by saritamarianyc.

Sarah received a challenge at her local design/craft swap - "old toy" as a material, and "steampunk" as a theme. So, she snagged a used, old-school Mr. Potato Head and created Spudnik using found materials from around her house. Wanted Poster by saritamarianyc.

Then, Sarah created an attached 'telescope' to house a series of clever, original documents that tell the story of Comrade Spudnik.   All in all, super creative, and super fun. We're glad people like Sarah are out there.

This is AWESOME!  It's a steampunk themed day here - I was just discussing some steampunk themed sculpture projects with some friends, and one of our local theatre companies just announced their 2011 project: Steampunk Dreams: Imaginary Technologies of the Victorian Era (http://bit.ly/bNA88Y).
