Here's the poppet I made in the poppet swap for hardyswanton01. She need new batteries for her camera, so I'm going to post here.
During the swap I had a few question for her to find my direction. One of her favorite poppets is Le Tigre & she reminds her of Amy Winehouse. She also wanted a more cat like poppet that is goth.
I found some pretty leopard fabric and I used Amy Winehouse as the model for hair and makeup. I'm not sure I got the goth part down very well, but I tried. I think I ended up a little more with a punk style.
When Miss. Poppet arrived at her new home she whispered her name to hardyswanton01, Amy Von Meowhouse. I love that name. I think it fits her well.
On to the pictures.
Here's her close-up.
She's not shy.
The first outfit I made was this one. She loves her tutu and bat's. I think this was the tutorial I looked at a long time ago. She used to have more really cute pictures there of her in her tutu. ?? I didn't leave any space on the elastic. That little tutu is a full 1 1/2 yard of Tulle!! http://www.flickr.com/photos/ambrosialove/522118984/in/set-72157594412881706/
This one was next. I used craftsman's pattern for the circle skirt. No ruffle and I cut it longer. I made the same top as the bat top.
After I made the black and red circle skirt, I thought it would make a great Poodle skirt. So I redrew the pattern so that it has no seams. I used poppet ears turned on the side, pointy side up for the halter top piece. Then I put them together into this dress. I love it! I'm not sure if you can tell, she has a spider charm on her pearl necklace.
One mix and match outfit.
Last, but not least. I just thought this one was really cute.
