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.  Wink

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.  Shocked

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.  Grin


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!!

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.  Wink


Last, but not least. I just thought this one was really cute.  Cheesy

What a great poppet. The clothes you made her are fabulous!  I especially love the bat dress/outfit, and the skull poodle skirt.  And the spider/pearl necklace!  I think you did a great job making her goth.

Thanks guys. Maybe she's a little more goth than I thought. I might be a bit confused about what's goth/punk/emo? lol

I think there are cute things about each style.  Maybe I blended it.  Grin
