Fangula is no ordinary vampire, he is a new breed of vegetarian vampire who only suck the juice out of tomatoes.

Although sunlight doesn’t kill him, he dislikes it because he thinks sparkling in the daylight makes him look like Edward Cullen.

He goes to the hairdresser every week just to keep his hair close shaved and he likes buying his clothes from the costume shop.

Standing doll measures about 26-28 cm.

This pattern has 6 pages of photos, and written instructions so you can do it quickly.
