I'm a big fan of Gundam and other mecha/robot series so I'd love a swap for that stuff. Would anyone else be interested? I'm thinking both anime/eastern series and western series should be allowed, as well as stuff dealing with the human characters. Examples off some series I'm thinking of:
Gundam (obviously) Macross/Robotech Transformers Big O Megas XLR Mazinger GaoGaiGar Votoms Gurren Lagann Code Geass Evangelion Iron Giant
Made these two yesterday using Nuno's mini mermaid pattern and a variation on said pattern. The dark-skinned one is a mermaid, the blue one is a naga/lamia/yaun ti/snakeperson/whatever you want to call it. The latter was made using the same old shirt my Mew poppet was made from, btw. Pics.
I've made yet another poppet! She's Ku's superior and fellow Shinigami (death god). I made her from some fabric I picked up at Wal-mart the other day. She was made using my eyeballing of the Elenore pattern, though her boobies did turn out a bit... large. But I'm okay with that, I think it suits her very well!
Waiting for some clothes...
Chillin' with Ku
I plan to make her some wing covers later so she can have large wings for flying (like Ryuk from Death Note). More pics soon, hopefully!
Hope this is okay and not against the rules. I didn't want to try to dig up Ku and Mikah's old threads, plus many of the pics have both in them, so I wouldn't know which one to post the photos in Plus I have another poppet to show off! He was made for a friend's sons birthday a while back. He's supposed to look like the Pokemon Mew (like Mikah, except not shiny) because his owner (the friend's son) LOVES Pokemon. He also has a shirt with a basketball on it because that's another thing his owner loves.
Ku didn't know the camera was on!
More pics might come soon. In the meantime, some of that aforementioned picspam of Ku and Mikah.
By a local spring/fountain that was covered in algae!
A girl on a doll forum came up with this wonderful idea of making angel wings from paper and wire a while back. I decided to try my hand at it to make temporary wings for my doll Lex. Only I had to modify her method a bit to be able to include *six* wings (he's supposed to be a reincarnated fallen Seraph BTW). Warning, he might be a bit offensive to those who have somewhat conservative religious beliefs (with the stigmata and all).
LOL kind of cheesy, but you can see the wings the best in this pic.
I know, can't really see the wings too well in this pic. Just wanted to throw it in because I think it looks cool[/attention whoring]
Yes, the "feathers" were all laid down individually. Didn't take as long as you'd expect though
I was bored the other day and decided to draft a pattern for a somewhat poppet-inspired raptor plushie. After sewing one and realizing the head was too small, I altered the pattern and made a second, using some fabric donated by a friend. Pics:
I'm thinking of making a few to sell at Anime Weekend Atlanta. What do you guys think?
I decided to make an Obitsu doll of Gundam 08th MS Team's Ayna Sakhalin a while back. I knew I wanted to make her a normal suit (Gundam's equivalent of a space/piloting suit), and finally got around to it a while back. Here's a pic I used for reference:
I still need to make her belt, and I need to try and get the fabric glue stains out of the places I don't want them. The entire thing is made from fabric from bookcovers, foamies, and fabric glue by the way. What do you think?
About a week or two ago I decided to make another poppet out of some black cotton. I think I had just finished his legs when I got the though "Hey! Wouldn't it be cool if I made him a SHINIGAMI (Japanese death god)?!". So I did. He took me about a week to complete (mostly 'cause I had wait to get some hand needles and yarn) and his body has some major, MAJOR mistakes (his pieces had to be entirely machine sewn due to the fact that I didn't have any hand needles at the time). But I finally completed him today at a friend's house! Take a look.
I made sure to give him long robes to hide said mistakes, so I think he looks pretty good. I made his wings out of pipe cleaners, fabric paint, a Wal-mart bag, and fabric glue (it took a few days for the glue to dry though, so that slowed things down), and then sewed them down to permanently attach them. His robe was inspired by my friend's doll angel costume and is pretty much and uber-simplified kimono that isn't sewn up at the sides (so I can slide it over his wings), with the ends hacked up by scissors (wanted it to have a ratty look). I made his hair the same way I made my other poppet's wig, only I glued it to his head (didn't see a reason to take it off, plus I wanted him to have short hair and a wig would easily fall off). What do you all think?
Yesterday a friend and I got together and decided to make out *male* Obitsus maid uniforms in honor of a joke from a certain webcomic. She, being more advanced in sewing than I am, drafted the pattern and sewed a bit of mine. So I guess she gets a bit more credit than I do. Anyway, I did sew most of mine on her machine. The hem on the apron is messy (it was done on machine. I plan to rip it later) and the collar is fraying a bit (it's just that type of fabric, considering we put fray-stop on it), but over all I think it's decent for a beginning seamstress. Pics:
Scary thing is, I think my boy could very well pass as a girl dollie to the untrained eye
