Sock Monkeys

Sock Monkey Ideas?
After last year's stroke of brilliance with the gay sock monkey cowboys, I'm having difficulty coming up with a concept for this year's Oscar contest prize. None of the movies seem as iconic or ripe for parody, you know? So I'm opening it up to you guys. Any suggestions? If I use your idea, I'll make an extra monkey and send it to you.

Jay and Silent Bob sock monkeys?

(I don't actually know what's been nominated, but Clerks II was one of my favourite films of the year, and the actor who played Elias totally should be nominated for an oscar...)

Hmmm. How to craft a "fat chronic blunt" out of socks...? :)

Hmmm...a sock monkey with a giant afro & mustache a la Borat. If only you could find an old PeeWee Herman doll & use the suit. :)

what about a sock monkey with either a knitted piece of cake or a rather large hair doo.. a la le movie last nuit

If you dare to venture into the world of foreign movies, Volve (Spanish) I think Penelope Cruz would make a brilliant sock monkey, or if you see the movie, the close family friend Agustine.

Little Miss Sunshine! If you haven't seen it, you should. You could do a monkey with velcro pants or something.

i have a few suggestions: - pirates of the caribbean... i know you'd have a great time making a jack sparrow monkey. - bond, james bond. you could have a bow tie and a little sock gun and everything! - the queen. how cute would that monkey be? ok, not so much cute as funny. - v for vendetta.

Mr Crumpet suggested Jack Sparrow and Davy Jones last night as well...

Hmmm. Jack Sparrow has definite possibilities... (Davy Jones? Is he trying to KILL ME?!)

Uh, does anybody have a still from the final dance scene in Little Miss Sunshine? I had another idea. :)

Borat or Jack Sparrow. Though I woould love to see a sock monkey Borat in that lime-green speedo/swimsuit that he wears - would be too funny!

Do you want stills of Olive? I can probably do a screen grab in the morning.

I'm just amused by the idea of making a sock monkey with a fake pot belly. :)

But I'm leaning more and more towards the Pirates...

Perhaps you could do Marie Antoinette.

Or Kenny.

I'm having Way Too Much Fun with this...

If you should need it, I put a grab at http://www.miftik.com/images/lms.jpg

Excellent! Thanks for that.

Roger Ebert. He could have 1 thumb up and 1 thumb down.
» Tricia on January 5, 2007

just a thought. What about an actual Oscar monkey, all gold and what not.
» Amy on January 5, 2007

Hmm. Sourcing gold metallic socks, though? (I do still have that paint from the Harry Potter coins...)
