Monsieur Alphonse Poissonnier by Cirque de Chaussettes

Roll up! Roll up! Ladies & Gentleman meet Monsieur Alphonse Poissonnier, Ringmaster extraordinaire, leader of the World Famous Cirque de Chaussettes. Monsieur Alphonse has been totally hand sewn from a new, clean, white sock. He wears a red felt fish tail coat, carefully embroidered in contrasting threads, with button detailing to the front & back. He wears three none matching pearl buttons down his chest. In his right paw he carries a hand sewn whip, made from felt & embroidery thread. Over his right ear he wears a hand sewn tophat with red trim. His rather suave looking face comprises of none matching button eyes, a tiny embroidered nose & a gorgeous black felt moustache!

Wow! He's great! And I love his description!
(But what is wrong with being made from used socks?)
