Just wish I'd got to meet him. I often pass the spot on the Long Mynd where he posed his girl on his bike and I think of him every time as it's such a great area. The tribute only touches the surface of the man from looking at his legacy here but still hits the spot to show what a great character he was and for those who look, an inspiration for all doll lovers and bikers. Thanks Midi.

A very touching Tribute Midiman. The feeling and effort that went into its making, by all involved, shows clearly in the well presented Video.

I too never met Wetsuit, I had read many of his threads here and on TDF before I got to Bob's announcement and this tribute thread. It was with sadness and a sense of loss that I read those comments.

Your's and Bob's great tributes will be there to tell Wetsuits story for all who come after us.

Thank you.

Sadly, I never had the opportunity to know Wetsuit but, going by the level of love and respect in which he is held, I wish I had.

A most moving tribute. Thank you Midi.

Thanks for posting the link and for the DVD Midi.

I'm sure Wetsuit would have enjoyed talking bikes with Wulfie and Cosy at this year's Meet.

I still miss him, and still regret that I didn't make it to the UK in time to meet him in person.

Had some old friends around yesterday, some I have not seen since 1975. My dolls are all over the house and they were most impressed.

Made tea and coffee, and got out the spare mugs. "Who is Wetsuit?"



I explained about the fabric dolls and how he made their outfits and accessories, and about his vintage motorcycles (one of my visitors is a former moto-cross rider) and that Joe died young.

We don't have his TB in a wetsuit pic which is a shame as it was brilliant but we do have his albums and posts, or what's left of them.
