Apothecary Jiggers Arrives to View the Shop.......

I recently asked Jo Medvics of Pocket Pygmies if she would make me an Apothecary for Slug and Jiggers. Jo makes wonderful characters so I was delighted when she said she would love to give it a go.
Well he has arrived and exceeded all my expectations. I absolutely adore him.
 I had sent Jo a print of a medieval apothecary I found on the Internet for initial inspiration and I think he has the perfect medieval quirkiness I was hoping for.
 Jo always chooses fabulous fabrics too, he is a great match for the interior of Slug's and the chains are a super touch.
 The face is so expressive. He has a world weary, dour look as if he has had to deal with one to many Hogwarts student!
 I have a lot of characters now for The Alley but am slowing filling the gaps for key wizards or witches and Wizard Jiggers will soon be in place behind his counter.
Do take a look at Jo's etsy shop to view some of her current work or her FB page where you can see some of her own projects which are simply breath-taking

  1. He is WONDERFUL! I can see why you are so pleased with him.

    I wonder if anyone from Slytherin ever asks him if he has a potion to cure dark circles & under-eye bags.

  3. From the minute I saw him when Jo posted photos, I could just tell it was one of the owners of your shop! He couldn't be more perfect and fits so well with the decor you've chosen. I particularly like the hat with the chains!

    He is going to look perfect behind the counter! Will we be seeing a Mr Slug at any point or have we already met him a while ago? :)

  6. Hi Janice! I love this guy! What a wonderful look he has about him and the costume is spot on! You know with the hat and all he sort of looks like the actor that played "the apothecary" in the movie Shakespear in Love. A terrific movie and a great doll for your "Slugs and Jigger" shop. What a catchy name!
