Purple Monkey ^o^

More images for reference available on Deviant Art

Sup humans,

Sorry it's been a while since the last post... I've been really busy with school work these days...
Anyway, my friend asked me to make her a purple monkey [she has always liked purple monkeys] She also has a purple monkey phone case which looks like this:
Image from polyvore.com
This case is like really squishy and rubbery and protected her phone well. She dropped it down the elevator crack [20 floors] and it's unscratched! The only damage is that her home button doesn't work. XD
