I have a push on to get all my doll requests finished before I begin my summer job, so here's the latest: Captain Jack Harkness, from Doctor Who and Torchwood. Played by the lovely John Barrowman (a sane man's Tom Cruise).
The face was probably the most challenging. It still needs some tweaking here and there. It's not so noticeable here but I did sew a little cleft in his chin.
The suspenders, however, I will never stop loving. They're made out of stretchy elastic straps.

- men, women, humans, aliens...he's a very well-traveled man).
