That's the fabric I used for my dragon!  I just picked up the same print in brown, but I don't know how I'm going to use it yet. I love how you did the eyes.  Those colors will work well together.

ambiguous.miss she is beautiful!!


goldfishpollywog I really like that combo, I can't wait to see it all put together Smiley


So inspired by the awesome wonderwoman poppet I decided to do a superman one for my nephew (who is in the hospital today having heart surgery)  I thouht it would make a cute gift for when he came home.  He wont play with it, he's only 2 months old LOL but my brother was a superman freak when he was a kid so he'll appreciate it.

I decided I wanted the human hands for this one with the rest of the regular poppet body.  Man on man those hands are tricky! LOL  It took me 2 tries and they still aren't perfect but they don't look too bad.  I'm gonna have to practice more though.

I have a question for you all though.  What do you think I should do for his hair?  I don't think regular wefted hair will give me the look I need.  Any ideas?

And one more question for all of you who've done poppets with very straight hair.  I bought yard that looked like it would be straight but after unrolling it I realized it wasn't it was wavy from being rolled up.  So how do you get the hair so straight?  Is it a special kind of yarn or do you do something to it to make it so straigt?

TIA Smiley

I think a fur wig would be good.  If you find the undead threads site there is a pattern for BJD fur wigs.  I think the ones for SD size should fit.  It's really easy, I promise.  I made about 6, and I hate fur.

I totally agree I think that would look the best.
For the hair being kinky. lol. What you can do is un-ravel it around a chair back. Tie in a few places with scrap yarn then place in some warm watter for awhile. The heat should help loosen the yarn.
Let it sit in the water for an hour or two, then take out and hang in your bathroom from your shower head. If it's still wanting to curl you can use a spray bottle to weigh it down a bit and that should help it dry straight.
there's an article on this in the knitting daily website....

http://www.knittingdaily.com/blogs/daily/archive/2007/11/02/from-the-frog-pond_3A00_-questions-and-answers-.aspx
The first is the actual article the second is questions and answers about the article and more tips in case the other methods for straightening the yarn doesn't work.
psst I'm the first person who's comment she answered in the second post. That made my day!
