Am I nuts to think I can have 3 of these done by Christmas?! One of them is my boyfriends World of Warcraft toon, plus one for my mom and one for my sister... I think the worst one is gonna be the WoW toon - so detailed! >_<

Jerkie, your poppet is adorable - love her hair!

Krista, If you want human ears that lay close to the head, sew them on after assembling the head.  I used this for my Spock Doll and it worked well, just don't add the points Grin  I cut two pieces in a vague gord-like shape, sewed them right sides together, turned them and added stitching to mimic the patterns on my ear.  After finishing the head, I handstitched them to the sides of the head at the front lower part, where my ears join my head.   Undecided  

Here is where he is posted if you would like to see the ears.  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=249557.msg2770177#msg2770177   Hope that helps!

That is exactly what I was looking for! That helps a whole lot, although he'll be wearing a helmet most of the time, when you take it off I don't want him to look funny! =] I've bookmarked your thread to go back to to look at.

Spock looks great! How was that hair to work with?

Check the pictures of the 'Elenore' poppets that are more human.  I believe the original had hand-painted or iron-on features.

Yeah I have that pattern, was gonna use the arms from that for a more "human" look. =] I was thinking of smaller pure black eyes for male eyes and funfur or something for the hair?

I'm also working on a human. What I did was draw the ears as little half circles then gather them a little bit before you put them into the head. Make sure you place them lower down so they are in the right place. Works great.

Did you make the ears roughly the same size as the ears with the pattern or a little smaller? Are you making the Elenore arms for your human one?

Any tips/suggestions on how to make the head/ears human like? I want to make my boyfriend his lvl 70 character from World of Warcraft for Christmas and he's a human... hrm...

Oh true! Good idea!
Then I use a toothpick and put e-6000 glue on the eyelid. I have a little pattern piece I use to get the same shape each time.
Then I stick the eyelid to the eye. Usually I have to add a little glue to the corners of the lid since I always seem to miss that spot. But using the toothpick makes it pretty easy.

Any possible way of sharing your eyelid pattern? =] I've done it once, but it's nice to see what other people do!

I can. It's sized for 18mm eyes so if you use a smaller size you'd have to trim it down. Um I can't share till monday though ans the usb cord for my scanner was killed by my adorable yellow lab.  Roll Eyes

Awesome thanks! =] Aww those adorable fuzzy helpers - gotta love em! No rush on it, no where near the eyes on my next one. =]
