Hello all thought I'd start a thread for a project i'm going to be undertaking. I've always been a fan of British Icon Mr Blobby & have decided its time to finally build a replica of this icon. If anyone has advice or tips they are greatly appreciated. Or if anyone has seen the real Blobby & has dimensions i would be over the moon.

I've decided to start on the eyes as they look quite simple. I will update as i get into this Blobtastic project. Wish me luck ;)

Thought I’d do a short update as I’m slowly gathering parts. I decided to tackle the eyes first as they are quite simple. I managed to find a 100mm fillable bauble & gently cut off the tabs & I think it looks quite good. I also got some acrylic discs for the white of his eye & his iris. The iris is a little lighter in colour but it’s not a huge deal. I also managed to find spring wobblers( which are usually used for shop displays) & I think they work really in giving his eyes that iconic jiggle.

Adding the black stickers to his eyes really made it come alive for me. Obviously I still need to attach his lovely lashes ( which is going to be crepe wool) & his eyelid. But at the moment I’m happy. I’ve never done a project like this so it’s the little wins. Slow & steady wins the race as they say.

Let me know how you get on with dimensions, I’m trying to do the exact same, but been warned from the owners of mr Blobby that it’s a copyright issue etc so they won’t give out dimensions etc.

Hi mate the dimensions have been the bit that’s slowed this project down but I thought you’d appreciate this email that I got today from the prop store as much as I did

I believe these dimensions are for just the head & body one piece but I’m not too sure so if replied just to get confirmation. If not I’d say the legs are close to 2ft long which would take the entire costume when put together a total of just over 6ft tall which I believe is how tall Mr Blobby. Don’t know why I didn’t email the Propstore first when they were selling one last year. It’s always the last place you contact lol.
