When I received the email asking if I could make a Lobo Sackboy, I knew I’d have to take the commission. Good Sackboy dolls are the ones based on characters with very distinctive markings and costumes. The BEST ones are those that have the recognizable look AND also happen to be the baddest mofos around, like Kratos, Hellboy, and now, Lobo from DC Comics.
Additional photos and details:
Lobo’s facial hair and facial markings were crocheted from black mercerized cotton crochet thread using a size C hook. He wears a removable vest, silver crocheted shin guards, a black belt with skull belt buckle, and black skull knee pads. His weapon is a silver hook on a long chain.
I hand sculpted the hook, silver skull belt buckle, and black skull knee pads in FIMO polymer clay.
