Summer Fuglies -- Ugliest bead ever

Okay, so during the cartoon challenge, I made some cute beads -- and then I tried Jabba the Hut, from Star Wars. The first one looked like melted dryer lint. Then I saw another version of Jabba in sort of a slimy green. Figured, okay, I'll try it again.

Well, I didn't have the right green, so I used Yellow Ochre. Disgusting -- and it only got worse from there! This Jabba didn't end up on the floor, but he should have. Big, heavy, ugly, wrong, and worst of all, I dropped him and he broke the ear off of one the Laidman Dog beads. Just one more reason to hate him.

The fugliest bead, on every count....

B

Re: Summer Fuglies -- Ugliest bead ever

It is not the most attractive bead ever, but it looks like Jabba the Hut. I knew it before I read your post. Now, Jabba is not a pretty thing either, so it looks just like it is supposed to. You ought to be able to find a Star Wars fan that would love it. I like him a lot, great character.

Re: Summer Fuglies -- Ugliest bead ever

Well, thanks. I was hoping to start a Summer Fugly thread. Consider it an invitation -- for anyone who made something butt-ugly this summer -- let's see it!!!!!

Hugs,
Barb, and the ever-disgusting Jabba the Hut

I too am a self-confessed Star Wars 'Geek' and I agree with your husband - it does look like Jabba! He's great - wouldn't look out of place in my Star Wars collection!!!
