Well, we're starting to lay the groundwork on our next toy in the "Carneys" series. This is Harriet "The Horrendously Hairy Housewife" as she looked a few years back in a rotation created for the Carney promo. With the toy line we kind of want to make the characters pop a bit more. I kind of copped out when I originally designed the outfits for these dudes. For some reason unitards made me laugh. Overall we want the toys to feel a bit more "sideshow" than they did in the promo. For most of the characters this will just mean outfit changes.

These are a few outfit options we came up with for the Harriet toy. We decided to give her a "burlesque on the beach" type feel. After all, carnival sideshows & burlesque shows go hand-in-hand.

As it stands now, this is what we're goin' with. It is still early in the game & there's a possibility this may still change. We're debating on possibly doing the dress as a separate attachment.

After deciding on the outfit, I went over the previous rotation adding the outfit change. I also made slight tweaks in Harriets structure... you may notice she now has a neck. So there you have it... Harriet! I wanna try & take you guys step by step through the production of our next toy, this being the first, hope you dig!
