Introducing, Bruce! My 2ft tall poppet. He's a gift for my aunt-in-law who lost her husband last year. This is supposed to represent him. I wanted to make her something that she can cuddle and hug when she's feeling down.
I apologize for the bad lighting and pics, my flash is broken on my camera.
So Bruce was a very naturally spiritual person, and he made the most beautiful dream catchers. I made this one for Poppet Bruce, which I have to say, isn't as easy as I thought! You really have to keep the tension just right or it looks all wonky.
He made his daughters these necklaces and wore one very similar to it, so I used Shrinky Dinks to make him one. In the upper left hand corner is a photo of the ones he made for his daughters.
He's a pic of him before he was finished. It kind of shows off his tshirt more. It was an old tye-dye shirt from a family member that I bleach-screened a peace sign onto and reconstructed to fit. The jeans are from another family member that I reconstructed to fit.
Here's a nice photo of Bruce. I tried needle-sculpting his face to match those cute round cheeks and button nose, but it looked weird, so I left the face the standard poppet face.
Here's another of Bruce in his usual attire, denim. The shirt the poppet is wearing is one of my old shirts from a bank I worked at. I'm a plus size gal, so reconstructing that to fit a poppet was CRAZY!
And finally, just a shot of his hat. I would have liked to have made the beaded band for the poppet hat, but I'm not that patient! Instead, the faux leather band I used was from another family member's wedding centerpieces.
Sorry for such a long post, but I was so excited to finally post this! My aunt-in-law hasn't received him yet (she's in another state), but I hope to give him to her soon. I hope she likes it! Any questions, just ask!
