Sneak Peek & Contest

Here's a sneak peek at the new slugs!
There will be more slugs with mini slug companions sold as a set, like Jonathan and Brad. Perhaps a mother and daughter who enjoy baking together...or a big bro and his little bro who idolizes him? Oh the possibilities! I'm really excited about a group of slug I've started calling the Gentlemen's Club Slugs! They won't be special edition by label, but these gents will certainly be special. Keep an eye out for lots of mustaches, ties and maybe even a pipe or two. There will be plenty, cause I just can't stop making those rad mustaches! The 3rd edition of slugs will also include some new and different accessories, like a bomb, a beer can and bubblegum (+ accessories starting with other letters as well, that was a total coincidence)! Of course I'll keep making some of the old (and popular) ones too: pizza slices, cupcakes, skateboards, cups o' joe, burritos and books. Got any ideas? Send them my way!
A couple of other noteworthly things about the 3rd edition: regular slugs will be more uniform in size as I am making them all out of the same amount of clay for the most part. So in this sense, the minis will really be minis whereas sometimes they were almost as big as the regular slugs in the past. I'm making all sorts of new colors as well, gotten really into tinting everything with black and brown for some rich earthy hues. I'm also offering GIANT slugs, 5 inches long by custom order only for between $20-25. And you fans out there might have noticed that yes, the prices have gone up a bit, but the slugs are looking better than a year ago and this is my only source of income. A girl's gotta eat!

This guy is one of the first new slugs. I'm all set to put him up for sale, but I can't think of a good name! He is definitely a sneaky guy, always up to mischief of massive proportions...he's got a bit of a problem with blowing things up! Send me your ideas via comment to this post and I'll pick the one that fits as I take naming my little slugs very seriously! Next Sunday, March 22nd I'll announce the winner of the contest and you get this explosive little slug for free! Don't forget to check back to see if you've won! But Martha, how will I get my dynamite slug if I win, you ask. This is how:

1.I'll post him in my etsy shop, reserved for you. (He will cost 20 cents according to Etsy because you can't list anything for less than this)

2. You add him to your cart.

3. You complete every step except the payment.

4. I see you "purchase" and have all your info to mail your slug out!

Fred is a cool name, esp for someone sitting with a bomb.

I've been thinking about this little slug all day today. here are some more names I came up with: TNT, gelignite, Molotov, nitrate, detonator and rupture. I think he is Swedish with a sexy accent. he is here on a green card working for the government building bombs. he's shy and doesn't talk much. blowing stuff up excites him and he smirks to himself every time he tests a bomb and it makes a big boom. he's also a voyeur and likes to watch how one reacts to booms. lastly, he loves carrot juice. - can you tell it's late at night and I cannot sleep?

how about Federico Kaboom? he's Italian and plays soccer. has a fascination with things round and loves the sound a boom makes.

I think he should be named Wylie! Like Wile E. Coyote who could never seem to get those explosives right to catch that roadrunner :0)

I think there is a definate air of mischief about this little slug. I think a name that brings a classic mischievous nature to mind would be appropriate... like "Puck"

Abby said...

I think he should have an unusual name, such as "Swerth".

Janet Slaughter said...

I thing he definately looks like his name should be...
Deton8 or Gusher

well I've been thinking about this a bit. So since he's a guy he could be The EVIL Dr Kaboom! or and I think I like this better Dr. E. Vil Kaboom ... if only he were a she then she could be Dr Eve L. Kaboom! lol

Ratt said...

Bob ... yes I think Bob. Bob is good.
