Soft Sculptures For the Hard Hearted

Gee “WIZ”!

A couple of months ago I was approached by an Etsy shopper who asked me to make characters from the 1978 Sidney Lumet film The Wiz. Being a total movie nerd, I immediately said yes, proceeded to watch the film about three times, and set about making the figures.

I made Dororthy (played by Diana Ross) and her little dog Toto:

The Scarecrow (played by Michael Jackson):

The Tin Man (played by Nipsey Russell):

The Cowardly Lion (played by Ted Ross):

And the Wicked Witch Evilene (played by Mabel King):

If you’ve only ever seen the original Wizard of Oz, do yourself a favor and “ease on down” to your preferred viewing source (because video stores don’t exist anymore) and watch The Wiz!
