Holy progress, everyone! You all have been so busy and inspiring. I'm finally getting around to some crafting, started my Halloween costume yesterday and I'm pretty pleased with how it's going. I'm late on this one this year, usually I start crafting for Halloween months in advance. It's exciting to see it finally coming together though. Now onto my husband's!

I've been lurking here (silently oohing, ahhing and coveting all the nifty things that've been shared so far) and flip flopping between this and the HPC - because I am too much of a slow crafter (or I feel that way at least) to be able to keep up with two sets of prompts. But I decided that the NB prompts seem to suit me better so..........here I am! Cheesy

Prompt:  September - Chemistry
Team: Multimedia!
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Rick Grimes Art Doll
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=450572.msg5415558#msg5415558 (all dolls in one thread)
Brief Description: I'm a huge fan of The Walking Dead so I made mini art dolls! (See what I did there, big & little? Ha, I amuse myself way too much). So, Everybody, I'd like to introduce you to Rick Grimes. I had an extended pondering session about how to do the mini shoes and decided on gluing (that looks wrong but chrome is giving me angry red underlines at glueing) the pieces together. I also had to glue his faux sheepskin jacket detailing.  His facial hair is also attached with adhesive -- a very important addition to be sure. Ordinarily I like to sew everything, but at this scale (20cm/8inches) sometimes it's just not possible so I was very thankful for the invention of the humble glue!

Prompt:  October - Statistics
Team: Multimedia
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Negan Art Doll
Project Link:
Brief Description: Dude. This guy's jacket had me scratching my head for dayyyss. I've never made a leather jacket, nor owned one, and couldn't figure out how the patterns for these things work. It took a lot of research -aka, staring at his jacket from a dozen different angles to try and decide how to put the pieces together.

It took me a long time and a lot of failed attempts to get it to work. I ended up painting the (real) zipper from black to silver, and since the zipper pull was comically too big, I made a little one out of craft foam.

Sorry about the instagram pic, but I think it shows the jacket better than the staged pics I took.

Prompt:  October - Calculus
Team: Multimedia
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Michonne Art Doll
Project Link:
Brief Description: I was especially proud of Michonne because she was made almost entirely out of my stash. Her vest and belt were repurposed from a handbag, her pants were upcycled from an actual pair of human-sized pants and the belt loops were the actual belt loops from those pants. To top it all off, her shoes were made from another handbag.

Prompt:  October - Arithmetic
Team: Multimedia
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Daryl Dixon art doll
Project Link:
Brief Description: Everything I do needs to be done in a certain order - for instance, I can't make clothes patterns until the body is done, and can't attach the head until the clothes have been added (curse of the giant head). But Daryl's vest presented its own set of challenges. I needed to make the pattern (and test it), scan the pattern, bring it into photoshop, position the wing design, export it into embird, digitize the design, stitch it out, then sew the pattern pieces together. But all in all, the step-by-step process worked out pretty well in the end.

Wow! This is fabulous. I envy you for getting a sweater done, even if it did take 10 months. I'd probably take me 10 years. Smiley

Lol, it was actually a year and 10 months!

@noodle-bug: I'm so in love with the tea cozy!  And your coat looks fantastic.  Actually it's about 4% coat, and 96% you.  Wink
