Toothless and Hiccup
This is a story from back in the late summer. As you may have guessed, Toothless and Hiccup are very close friends and were going to fly to the hospital together.... though they took a plane because it was really too far for Toothless to fly himself. Here are their diagnosis photos:
As you can see, while Toothless just needed a bit of cleaning, Hiccup was in more dire straights. His original clothes and body were flannel, and it had not worn well with all the hugs and adventures he had had. It was agreed that Hiccup would need to be fully recovered in new fabric, except for his hair and ears. His clothes would be removed, and he would get new clothes, and a new vest as well. It was serious surgery, but otherwise he was in danger of disintegrating without some magical interference. I was actually pretty excited because I had the perfect fabric for his new vest and boot trim --- as you’ll see if you read to the end :-)
Here’s Toothless in his bubble bath:
Already feeling much better! Here’s his new rainbow heart being made and transplanted (with his original small heart inside too):
Next, checking on his chubbiness before he got closed up:
Just right! On to Hiccup’s surgery. Given it’s complexity, I didn’t pause to take photos, but here he is all better:
And here are the two fast friends, ready to fly home:
Their person is one of you dear readers, and she wrote:
Thank you so much! Hiccup looks great with the new clothes and skin. (I don't know how you do it because he looks brand-new!) I love how his hands came out. You have my permission to post the photos on your blog if you'd like, since I know the photos from other beloved toys make me happy.
So here’s hoping their story makes you happy too!
