This is the pattern I use when I want to make 5 fingers since I am no good at turning the fingers most times it works well then I sculpt the fingers. Hope this helps.

Well I'm working on Mr.Storm trooper again. He has to be finished by Friday. My brothers birthday is technically next week but I am sick of seeing him bald and sad on the craft table. He's been lingering for over a year now and needs to go!  I gave him hair today. (so not fun.) And am working on his armor. Working on the body first, then the legs then arms and helmet last.
I drafted patterns for all of it. And I'm using felt and top stitching little details. I'll also be painting some too. But that requires that I go to walmart and get paint. I want to do that like Thursday and let it dry overnight.

that's where I'm at. no pictures right now maybe tomorrow when I have more work done since last time.

My brother is also into Star Wars. i can't wait to see pictures of him.  Smiley  i'm always in awe of all the great creative poppets. i'm new here and working on my first poppet. i've been inspired by so many wonderful poppets. Cheesy. i love reading the thread and there's so much helpful info. thanks everyone!

Just used it with the current problematic poppet and now she looks all normal, yay"^.^"

I look forward to seeing the storm trooper! We are all avid fans of Star Wars here:D

I'm looking forward to seeing him too. (if that makes sense) My brother is really into the storm/clone troopers and collects them. I've had 3 action figures in my possession to pick from as to which one to make.

I was originally hoping when I offered to make him a poppet he'd want nightcrawler from x men. lol that would be so much easier. Perhaps I'll have to make him for me instead! Wink

I shall hopefully have more done tomorrow! Off to work on him some more before bed!

DizzerSpinninRound glad that it worked for you. I love the look of 5 fingers but struggle to turn the individual ones and got the idea to do that from the toes. Hope your poppet behaves from now on.

I am with everyone else too cant wait to see the new one and the storm trooper one.

Nightcrawler easier? Really? With all of the tats and everything? You must be a sewing genius Shocked

Thank you so much, I'm so glad that she looks more human like"^.^" While making her wig tonight I was contemplating making it detachable, but seeing as she has no ears (my first poppet is a panther and her wig cap is held on by her ears), I was thinking of doing this with velcro...only to remember that I have no clue where my velcro is Sad Oh well, I guess it will have to wait until my next poppet. I thought about snaps, but I'm not so sure how easy that would be with the sew on snaps I have.

Right now, she has the finished 360 hair cut (multi layered hairstyle) wig safety pinned to her head and is jointed and completely in the nudies Grin I'm trying to think of what clothing to make for her seeing as she is for a swap and I want to make as much as possible since I probably won't be able to make more for her again Undecided

Artisic lisence. lol I would probably do more of this nightcrawler:

I like his street clothes but with blue skin. Smiley

I have a storm trooper with body armor now. I'm working on leg armor a bit. Should have an in progress pic later today...

Dizzyspinner-perhaps if we saw her we could help you come up with clothing ideas? I'd be happy to look at her and help brainstorm. You could message us with the picture url so that your swap partner doesn't see it. Smiley

I've still not had time to finish my first girl. I'm messing about with her. Working on getting the legs right. I'm kind of intimidated be the hair, I think, so will have to take that on soon or I'll never get any further.
