Lunchbox in Fairyland

I see I've been slacking off in the posting department, I thought I'd posted something since May, but apparently not!

Anyway, here's my Nibblefest for this month, it's called "Lunchbox in Fairyland"

This month’s Nibblefest contest theme is “Fairies,” and I was stuck for a model. Not one of my other characters was willing to play Fairy for me. I didn’t even ask Lunchbox because he’s a boy (fairies are more of a girl thing), plus I didn’t think it would work so well with his diaper, but he heard about my dilemma (from Soft & Fuzzy Johnson, no doubt) and really stepped up to the plate. He put on those fairy wings like a real trooper, what a good sport he is! 

If you look at his expression though, you can tell this isn’t his premium choice, in fact he’d rather be doing almost anything else. But you know what? He has his lunch-pail and his diaper, so everything will be ok. When you have your lunch-pail and your diaper, you can rule the world (or Fairyland at least).

Let’s hear it for Lunchbox!
