i don't get it. is the ghost bathing in the washing machine?
maybe if you added a bottle of bleach the joke would be completed.
I think the ball and chain is meant to keep the ghost from spinning in the wash cycle. Very cute:)
since it's a ghost, it can only bathe in a washing machine? i think something like that.
still cute $5!
i thought it was the spirit of the washing machine.. and he's chained to it
nice picture but i don't know what's going on.
It needs to be more clear... it took me sometime to realize it was a ghost.
btw, congrats for your printed 'Beginning', pandaluna! ^^
I love your designs!
I'd bet money you were french
Ghosts often have a ball and chain to symbolize being chained to the mortal life. Without it, I'd be a lot more confused as to whether the figure is a ghost or not.
very very very cute but confusing
It took me a second to see the ghost but then it came together...well at least the way that I see it.
People often use sheets to dress up as ghosts...so where else would a sheet ghost take a bath than in the washing machine?
I Love the idea and concept. Just wish the ball and chain weren't there and the ghost was just a tad more...obvious (though I am not sure that how that could be done)
Still, I like it $4.
I disagree with mizzmarvel. The ball and chain is usually only used on a humanoid ghost (think Jacob Marley.) The quintessential "sheet ghost" is often less realistic and more cartoonish, rarely depicted as a tragic figure bound to life. It's actually more recognizable as a ghost without them.
Other than that, the design is adorable. $5.
nice and simple illo~ yea, chain is quirky but i dont get it
I think the ball and chain might have been necessary for me to get it at first, but now I can see that taking it off could work just as well or better. I can't decide! Agony...
Lotsa discussion on the ball and chain...but i must say it adds nothing to the design and confuses a very simple but fun-loving joke.
aaaaaaaawwwww! this is very cuuute!!! 5
