Morbidly Adorable Tarot Fool

Morbidly Adorable Munny Charity Auction!

I dropped off my Morbidly Adorable Munny at the Record Exchange yesterday! I sooooo wanted to keep her! She is being auctioned off for the Women and Children's Alliance charity:) I was asked to participate at the last minute, so her bidding just started yesterday! She is at $25. The vinyl toy she's painted on costs that alone, so this is a great deal at any price! She is a fully painted, one of a kind piece, all done by me. She is the one and only Munny I've ever painted. I hope to see someone give her a great home. She needs someone who will buy toys for her coffin;) Bidding ends next Friday, so don't miss your chance!

Artist: Misty Benson (me!)
Munny's Name: Morbidly Adorable Munny
Material's: Mixed Media (Acrylic Paint and Paperclay) I believe she is about 7" tall.
About the Munny: This Morbidly Adorable Munny likes to play dress up and keeps her toys in a coffin. With a death ray, a bolt of lightning, and a can of Skelly Soup, she has all the necessary items to take over the world! I'm sure this dark little dearie won't mind if you add to her macabre collection!

'What is a Munny?' you may be asking yourself!

The toy company Kidrobot who produces limited edition vinyl toys, created the Munny -- a blank character for artists to customize by drawing, painting, piercing, you name it!

This is how my Munny looked when I first received it! It was completely blank and up to me to decide what to do with it:)


I hope you enjoy this cutie pie! The Morbidly Adorable Munny is looking for someone who will let her take over the world -- or at least let her think she is! 'Cause money changes everythiiiiinnnnng...
