A KT action figure? Interesting! A bobble head would be hilarious. :lol: Would totally need a Lucky Luke one too. :p

A really fun idea. First hit on Google: http://www.custombobbleheads.com/?gclid ... hwoddXLTbQ

I've no idea if they could produce something we would like though.

Did a walk thru of the website, looks like they could do one with a guitar and be able to do a Luke behind a drum kit too. I think you'd be looking at $300-400 US. Okay I'll go back to my chair now.

Love the Bobblehead idea.

Wake me up when it's time to PayPal. You FB'ers know who you are! :smt015

I'm already laughing at the idea of a mini KT bobbing her head non-stop! If we do this, someone should videotape KT's reaction when she sees it :lol:

Here's another one stringed diddley bow from Etsy. It's a bit cheaper, but the other seller has prettier boxes in stock :roll:

PS. Nat, I think I'll be paypaling, post offices are a real chaos here atm.

I'm in. And I'll Paypal, Nat.

I like a lot of the ideas. The book seems like a nice pressie, Kim, but it'll be hard to get her smt original? I wouldn't know which book she would prefer, but than again, I don't know her half as well as the others of you here ;)

The Diddley bow is great as well. And the bobblehead would be hilarious, imagine that :p

I'll get started on my card over the weekend, me thinks.

I found one for $80. It'd just be her though, no Luke, But it's fully customised so we could probably have her exact guitar :lol:

This is awesome. It's $140 though and I don't think we'd get enough :(

Well....I'll pledge a $20. Not expecting people to state their pledge numbers, just saying that some might be willing to go that extra bit because we might not have been all that generous in the past.

That's pretty cool. I can't donate as much through, I'm poor atm.

Can we set like a general amount of 5-7 pounds perhaps?

I thought £5. But if people want to donate more then they can.

I like the Bobblehead idea, I think she'd love that. I can put in $10 like I did last year.

I absolutely love the bobblehead idea. We'd have to settle on what era of hair, though. Classic brunette ETTT-era, DF-era with little blonde swoops at the temples, TS-era with the wild unbrushed mane and lots of random blonde, the recent "tribal shave," etc.

Not The Fringe, though. Christ, not that. ;-)

:lol:

I think the blonde bits would be best.

If we want to do that, it's custom made so it would take a while. So it'd need to be ordered as soon as.

It's quite good in that you can send them about 5 photos and they'll combine them to make the most accurate likeness.

I'd be all for the style at the beginning of the PTKA video (would that be the "blonde bits"?) It bridges the older styles and the new styles nicely.

Feeling sort of pervish here. :twisted:

It's only her hair, it's not too pervy :lol:

I'm thinking plain tshirt and black leather leggings?
