Vote for Pedro

Hello Polished Lovelies!!

Welcome to day 9 of the Lazy 15 Challenge - Disney movies/characters.  I wanted to do something out of the box for this one, I realize now this isn't "out of the box," but it is an obscure Disney character I found using good ol' google!  Pedro the Chilean airplane - according to wiki Disney, Pedro appeared in one of Disney's collection of shorts called Saludos Amigos.  As you can see, Pedro is a small airplane that takes his first flight to pick up the mail in Medoza.  Wiki says that cartoonist, Rene Rios Boettiger (Pepo) was disappointed that Pedro was the image that the outside world had of Chile, so he created one of the most famous Latin American comic magazines, Condorito. (paraphrased from wikipedia)

I used a combination of photos as the inspiration for this one, mainly this one here and this one here.  Yay, you can watch the short on YouTube, click here if you have a mo to check it out - so cute!

Ugh, I wish the top coat I used didn't bubble, this is extreme macro though, so it's forgiven :)
