Looks good! This definitely encourages me to try some of the Blythe patterns - I just got a Hujoo Wings not too long ago, and having a heck of a time finding boy clothes, but plenty of Blythe t-shirts and sweaters and pants should work just fine.
Okay, so ... way later in the game ... I'm finally getting around to making my second poppet. I decided this one is going to be a kitsune, but for now ... all I have are fuzzy cell phone pictures. I'll HAVE to get better ones when I get the obi done on the kimono ...
Posing in front of the cat, and no, we don't have eyes yet. I'm looking for my paints, cuz I know just how I want them to look.
You really can't tell, but the back of the kimono is 2 separate pieces. I'm quite happy with actually getting the pattern to almost match up perfectly
So, a couple more months here and I get to be a granny. YAY
my stepdaughter wants me to do a blanket, which is cool, but she saw one she fell in love with. She said it was a square blanket, with a circular swirl coming out from the center in like a burnt orange and wine purple. (sounds odd, but I've seen this on other things and it works) ... but I don't think I've ever seen a swirl pattern except for a jacket thing that was worked in like 6 colors and confused me. LOL
Any suggestions where to look? I'm not having much luck finding anything like it. Cheap patterns are good, free is better to be honest. MUCH better.
It's not lame at all. I've got sheets I've bought at thrift stores because I liked the print and SOMEDAY they will be shirts or something. Fabric-store fabric (or Walmart fabric) is expensive, and I'm pretty broke most times.
My friend has a construction barricade, looks kinda like this - http://www.trafficwks.com/cart.php?m=product_detail&p=7, but it's wood and metal instead of plastic. Well, I have it now, because I mentioned seeing a site somewhere that showed how to turn one into a folding chair.
Of course, now I can't find the site ... Has anyone else seen this? I tried looking here, thinking this is where I see a lot of really cool recon ideas, but no luck. Maybe I'm searching for the wrong thing? But I swear I couldn't make something like this up
Wall art is good (I remember hearing Robin Wood's husband's sales pitch on how for for ten -or was it 15- dollars, you, YES YOU, can have your very own collection of 78 miniature Robin Wood prints! lol ) I kinda like the idea of fanning them out or doing some artsy arrangement into a poster frame.
My answer is a bit more detailed. It's a jointed nekomimi doll. The style is popular in japan. Neko means cat mimi means girl. Thus cat girl. She has ears, a tail, and paws rather than hands. People are always like !OH! I can see the lightbulb go on when I explain it like that. My mom and grandma are even telling people about my catgirl dolls! lol
She;s looking great so far!
Thanks! And I just realized I did the joints wrong, so ... first project, take apart and redo the shoulder/hips. THEN the clothes.
Yeah, I'd lose them at the word nekomimi. Unfortunately, I work with a bunch of ... I guess the best word is mundanes? (since normal is so subjective) They're wonderful people, but me reading vampire stories is odd, and the fact that I understand quite a bit of gamer speak stuns them.
I think the discussion at work is back to am I creative or just insane, because I never have "normal" answers when they ask me what I'm making. Told them it was a doll, a poppet specifially, and when asked why it has a tail ... "Because it goes with the ears. Ears like this seem kind of silly without the tail."
And my project for the weekend - clothing for the poppet
