Cool Britannia UK with illustrator and comic creator Jess Bradley! Notice that Cool Britannia is being held up against one of Jess’s awesome prints “Tea is a rather spiffing beverage!”, of which UK definitely agrees!
Jess Bradley also visits lots of UK conventions. If you like her work from what you see in the photos, you can follow Jess Bradley here: http://squid-bits.blogspot.co.uk/ and here: http://squid-bits.tumblr.com/
After seeing all the shops at home filled with clothes, accessories and goodies with the Union Flag on them, I just had to make a doll of UK and dress him up in the little treasures I collected! He stands at 20 inches tall, and I named him “Cool Britannia” to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and London hosting the Olympics this year (fingers crossed that it all goes well)!
The doll is hand-made from fleece fabric (upper body), synthetic fur (hair), polyester stuffing and Craft Velour fabric (lower body).
The clothes and all the accessories were purchased from various shops in the UK and customised with glitter stickers and Union Flag ribbon. It isn’t in the pictures, but I also added a pretty, silver functioning pocket watch that also has the Union Flag on the watch-face.
This plush doll has been sold and found a loving home!
UK in his Cool Britannia outfit, minus sunglasses! He’ll be at London MCM Expo tomorrow (Saturday) with me.
