Halloween Nonesuch Skelve Release info!

  • by

hallowskelve1The original Nonesuch Skelve was an instant hit, so of course we would bring back another version, and this time it is the Halloween variant!

Megan of Nonesuch Garden has been busy for weeks with her needle and thread getting ready for Bewitching III. All the hard work comes to fruition when these plush skelves release this Friday!

A low edition of only 12, these Skelves are in their perfect orange Halloween costume with their signature top hats. Have them sitting down or standing up, but act fast because they will walk out of the door fast. We will release these at various times all throughout the day on Friday, October 25 in the Circus Posterus store here. Keep checking back because only a few will go up at a time. These are limited to one per household and $150 each.

Scott Radke Skelves for INTERFACE

RadkeSkelve1We gave you a teaser earlier on some Skelves Scott Radke is working on for his show at Stranger Factoryand now we are pleased to fully reveal three of them! Scott takes the classic Skelve platform and combines it with his own defined style to create a brand new Skelve look. The Radke Skelves are both familiar and new, but they are undeniably mysterious and charming. And the details – that pointy burlap cap, perfect little painted heart and tiny rivets! Scott will have numerous Skelves available for the show, and so we don’t spoil it, we are only showing you a small sample. These faces grow even more expressive with each look, so study them carefully!




Scott Radke’sInterface” opens April 5th at Stranger Factory along with Kathie Olivas‘ “Scout” ”, and Stephan Webb’sEvolutionary End Game”. An opening reception will be held on April 5th from 6-9pm.

Kathie Olivas just sent us an image of her “studio mess” and it looks like she is working on a gorgeous Skelve for her show “Scout“. We hope to see more soon, but we definitely love fourteen inches of Skelve.


Look for this Skelve and more from Kathie Olivas‘ “Scout” April 5th at Stranger Factory along with Scott Radke’s  “Interface”, and Stephan Webb’s “Evolutionary End Game”. An opening reception will occur April 5th from 6-9pm.

The Nonesuch Skelve is here!

  • by


After months and months of planning, tweaking patterns, and executing the tiniest little stitches on the tiniest little top hats, the Nonesuch Skelves are ready for primetime! These precious hatted things are a collaboration work between plushmistress Megan Baehr and Brandt Peters and Kathie Olivas, and we love them!

A small, very limited, edition of 10, the Nonesuch Skelves will be appearing in the Circus Posterus Store this Friday for $140 each. Remember to keep checking the store because these may appear at any time!

We got a chance to chat with Megan about the Nonesuch Skelve too!

CP: Tell us about the Nonesuch Dolls!
The Nonesuch Dolls are little plush art dolls that stand approximately 4.75 inches tall. They are made out of merino wool felt, embroidery floss, polyester fiber fill, and a dash of love. They are hand sewn from my own original patterns that I designed specifically to be customizable. I wanted the possibilities to be endless while maintaining a unique style and point of view. I have not yet faced a custom request that I was not able to make into a Nonesuch Doll. I enjoy the challenge!

CP: What’s been the biggest challenge in translating the Skelve to plush form?
Getting the proportions right was a challenge. My Nonesuch Doll design does have its limits and the Skelve pushed them all the way to the edge. But I kept working at it until both Brandt and I were satisfied.


CP: What’s been the most enjoyable part of the Nonesuch Skelve process for you?
Finishing them! Seeing them all lined up on my work table makes me feel like some sort of mad scientist who has discovered the process of cloning. Muwahaha! However, while they all look similar, each one has a unique personality. This is the joy of handmade.

CP: What other adorable and awesome things can we expect to see from you this year?
: I have plans to expand my Open Edition Nonesuch Doll line with several new designs this year. I would also like to focus on some more Limited Edition and OOAK pieces that include my other art doll venture, the Sproutlings.


Above is one of Megan’s Sproutling dolls posing with a handsome bevy of Nonesuch Skelves. We promise that they will look similarly dashing in your Skelve OR plush collections. We definitely look forward to sending these squishy dapper gentleskulls onwards to their new homes!

And finally – here is a bad joke, courtesy of dear Megan.

UPDATE #2: Nonesuch Garden x Circus Posterus Skelve

  • by


It’s incredible what can transpire in the course of a few days with the entrepreneurial plush master Megan Baehr (of Nonesuch Garden)! We have been giving you progress updates on the Nonesuch Garden x Circus Posterus Skelve collaboration for a few weeks, and now we are in the home stretch!

Megan just sent over some images of the almost complete plush Skelves she’s been working on, and if my arithmetic is correct, we may only have a very small decuple edition on our hands. Painstakingly hand sewn with tiny little blanket stitches, the Nonesuch Skelve blends the Megan’s plush wizardry with Kathie and Brandt’s classic design, and will be a perfect heirloom piece. The only thing missing on these dapper apparitions is a proper fitted hat, …so, the next update will quite certainly be release information!

No need to practice your F5 stretches yet, we will have the info soon.


Greetings and Glowing Salutations

Earlier this month, we spotted the 5-inch resin mini Greeter haunting around Stranger Factory, and now there seems to be a herd of them everywhere! They are multiplying faster than gremlins in a bubble bath I think. For those wanting to see what these guys look like in the dark, we are lucky enough to have a picture of them in their natural glowing habitat below. Early reports say these will be coming out in about a month, but we will most definitely let you know soon.


Nonesuch Garden x Circus Posterus Skelve


This weekend, we were hit with a left hook on the Circus Posterus Instagram.

The details are slim for now, but there seems to be a Nonesuch Garden and Circus Posterus collab Skelve on the horizon. We talked about Megan Baehr aka Nonesuch Garden last October before Designer Con about her amazing plush work, and now it looks as if there will be a crossover of epic proportions!

The images are of a plush Skelve adorned with a proper top hat in the same fashion as Megan’s Nonesuch Dolls. This Skelve has posable legs – for a sitting or standing position, or just getting ready for some good yoga.

We are beyond excited for this release. More details soon folks!


Leecifer lets loose with “Long Dogs”

Sals go wha

Last week, we gave you a gander into Leecifer’s workshop and his progress on “Long Dogs”  this February at Stranger Factorybut now we can show you even more! That Boston Terrier Skelve is developing awesomely, and there is an arsenal of revamped Big Sals getting the Leecifer magic touch. It looks like there is some Limon and Olivas work as well, ready to be painted up in Lee’s signature drybrush style.  Lee isn’t holding back at all, and we can’t wait to see more!

Lee KO Lee Limon


Boston Skelve

 Leecifer’s “Long Dogs” along with Jason Limon’s “Foretell” and DrilOne’s “Empty World” open at Stranger Factory on Friday, February 1st from 6 PM – 9 PM.

Mini Greeter Spotted

Mini Greet

The Skelve has taken many apparitions over the years, but now a new 5 inch genus has been spotted known as the Mini Greeter.  This little fella holds a secret too, he glows. This found footage below documents just how amazing the luminosity can be! Keep on a lookout because the Mini Greeter, sculpted by Scott Wetterschneider of Shinbone Creative, will be making his haunts to Circus Posterus very soon.
