A big fan of both the Horatio Hornblower and the Temeraire series, Gnelson leapt at the chance to add a little swashbuckling swagger to his style for the masquerade ball. Rummaging in his attic, he pulled out his great uncle’s baldric and is ready to jig his way through the evening!

This version includes directions for a knitted sword if you cannot source a small prop sword!

He’s available separately or as part of the Grimblewoods Collection Volume 2.
