Raiden Pipe Cleaner Figure by the-gil-monster
Raiden Pipe Cleaner Figure
A custom chenille stem figure of Raiden, the God of Thunder from Mortal Kombat.

Raiden stands approximately 3 inches high. His body is built completely of chenille stems, and his costume is felt and fun foam with a burlap hat.

Raiden is quite poseable, and his head and arms rip off for battle in AMPUTHEATRE- The World's Goriest Board Game!

I love your chenille dolls. I work in a similar medium (poms and felt with some chenille). Would you mind sharing your techniques?
