Regular visitors to the BeastieBlog might remember Pirate Beastie, who went to live with Pirate-in-Training Thom last Autumn.
Pirate Beastie, by CrawCrafts BeastiesThey’ve been having some great adventures together ever since – they even got to meet Captain Jack Sparrow at Hallowe’en! But it seems like these two daring buccaneers have run into some difficulty lately – namely, how do you get at treasure that’s trapped in a sunken shipwreck?

So a special request was put in, and this little monster answered the call!
Did Somebody Call Diver Beastie? CrawCrafts BeastiesUm, can you really get down to the ocean floor like that? Where’s all your Beastie dive kit?

Oh, super! There it is. Don’t forget your flippers, too…

And now it’s time to put it all together! First of all, he has a belt with a felt dive knife…

…Then it’s time to put on the flippers!

His oxygen tank is mounted on the back of his BCD (buoyancy control device, the black vest-like thing), and it’s connected to his regulator and dive mask…

And that leaves just one more thing to do – a little research on some of the interesting creatures he may encounter on his underwater travels!

(Diver Beastie is reading “Unusual Creatures – A Mostly Accurate Account of Some of Earth’s Strangest Animals” by Michael Hearst. Great fun for those of us interested in nature’s oddities!)

I can’t wait to see how this Diver Beastie settles into his new home. And thanks to Noémie from FocalHeart for welcoming another Beastie into her family!

Don’t forget that Friday posts are back, so we’ll see you later in the week for more Beastie antics with Paddy and Plunkett!

    1. Don’t worry! I’m sure this monster is in safe hands… His new friend has a great imagination, and will know that imaginary oceans are far more interesting than taking Beastie into the bath! The Beasties appreciate your concern, though 😀

  1. Yes I can confirm that he is fine, he is at the wheel of his new ship… Pirate Beastie is happy to have a break from steering and is now enjoying his new functions in the crow’s nest. Our third Beastie is also on board, doing what he does best…

  2. Diver Beastie is extremely well made, a lot of care and thoughts have been put into his creation, from the first sketches of the design of all the accessories to the packaging of the parcel which was a treasure chest! this is true craftswomanship 🙂
