technicolor coats

After the DuckTales trailer dropped last week, there were some fans who expressed relief/happiness that the show was restoring Scrooge’s broadcloth coat to its proper color of black and red.

However, Scrooge’s coat has been all over the color wheel throughout the decades, especially way back when Carl Barks was writing and drawing him.

With that in mind, I thought we could have some fun with this.

Here, then, is the first installment in a sporadic series I’m calling…

Scrooge McDuck’s Coat of Many Colors

or

Uncle Scrooge and the Amazing Four-Color Dreamcoat

From Uncle Scrooge #1 and “Only a Poor Old Man,” please direct your attention to Scrooge’s Christmas Broadcloth…

For the love of all that is good and holy will one if you talented birds of paradise make me a manip of Liam Payne as Joseph (and the amazing Technicolor™ dream coat)????!!!!!!?!?!

My mum phoned me to tell me she made me a bag to carry my notebook and art supplies, but warned me that she used “all sorts of colors at random” and that it looked “very weird, not sure you’ll like it”. Since my current bag is twelve years old and has been repaired five times already, I was like whatever, I’ll use the new one anyway, thank you very much!

So today she gave me the bag.

And.

Oh my god.

Just look at it.

I have no words.

There’s one thing missing, though…

Perfect.

So I am delighted to be able to introduce FrogMaster Raymond, wearing his amazing technicolor coat of the Dark Arts!

The idea of him actually being a frog came very early - I knew I could never find a doll that would resemble Master Raymond, and so thinking laterally, a soft toy frog seemed logical! 😀 But then I had to find one.

Obviously I have had to simplify the coat, and in fact have made it a waistcoat, mostly because of his large arms! 😆 And each panel picture has been somewhat simplified too, the bottom left one particularly : I’ve only embroidered one wing, but I didn’t want to overpower the panel with too much needlework (or my fingers, tbh)

And of course, he had to have a wig! 😆

So, completing the current line-up of dolls is FrogMaster Raymond, wearing his amazing technicolor coat of the Dark Arts!

The idea of him actually being a frog came very early - I knew I could never find a doll that would resemble Master Raymond, and so thinking laterally, a soft toy frog seemed logical! 😀 Then, of course, I had to find one. I did try and find a Kermit, but alas no such luck. But many Sunday mornings spent at car boot sales finally paid off!

With a little perspective, FrogMaster Raymond’s costume is one of the outfits I am most proud of. 😬
