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.

YAY! When is the next poppet along??!?

*jonesin and in need of poppet clothes!*

~Sullengal

Do you mean poppet swap?

Um yeah. Sorry, was multi tasking last night trying to finish my Halloween costume of Hel and Loki!

Poppet Swap. I've been trying to hop on one since I need some wardrobe help for my two (almost three) girls.

I'd love to try and get in on the next one.

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?

Nope I'm using the regular arms because I can't do those fingers for the life of me. I ended up making 5 arms to get 2 that worked because I tried to make the fingers. I used fun fur for his hair though and brown eyes with eyelids, but no lashes. I made the ears smaller, but it is up to you how big you think they should be.

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?

When I did human ears, I placed the bottom of the ears even with the botton of the nose.
It seemed to work well.

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

His hair is faux fur and cut into 8 or 9 pieces.  I e6000ed it on to keep it still while I was sewing, then handstitched each piece to the head and its hair piece neighbors.  My first attempt was the wig pattern that was in this thread, but I had trouble with the size and how the hair laid, so ripples and I sat down and cut it to lay correctly.  Really it wasn't too bad (if you ignore the toddler/preschooler interuptions) just make sure that you cut from the back of the fur with an exacto if you want the hair to stay the length you bought and work in a place that you won't lose small pieces in!  I think the couch ate a couple of sideburns Grin 

As for the pieces, there was one bangs area, two sideburns, two top, two sides, and one back head I think!  Let me know if you need anymore information, and I'll try to tug it out of my memory Wink

When I use faux fur I take my piece and shape it to the head. Cutting slits for side burns and such. I pin it in place and see where the ripples and such are, then trim to the desired shape. Then I cut little slits where those ripples are and they will lay flat. I then take the "wig" off and slather the underside with fabri-tac. Place back on head and work it around until all of it is laying flat. It turns out very nice and the hair isn't going anywhere. It is hard to explain how to shape it to the head, but I hope that gives you some idea. I did it to Chuck the Classy Monster and the current poppet I'm working on.
