Hey all!!

I just finished this and HAD to post pictures of it.  I've been working on this poppet for about 2 weeks off and on.  I spent the last 3 days in bed with a sprained ankle just handsewing the clothes.  Holy cow that was soooo time consuming, and I'm not 100% pleased how they turned hot (tight here and there)

Anyways here's what the character looks like (there's very few pictures on the net of him)



And here's my (slightly modified) poppet version of him





I'll be sad to let him go but he's for a swap, hense the no peeking in the subject line.

Let me know what you think!

Rofl.
I haven't seen the movie, but guess what I was just going to watch!
It's a sign that I <b>have</b> to watch it.
The poppet is absolutely amazing. Cheesy

I think I may have to marry you now.


Tongue Just kidding!  But I really do love this poppet!  Baron is one of my all-time favorite Miyazaki characters, and I think you definitely captured him here.  Very dashing in that suit, which is also really impressive.  Good job all around, you have one lucky swap partner!

The Baron! How fabulous is he?

Did you have much trouble making his clothes? I'm completely loving his coat tails, btw. :-)

shdwstrm - Did you post a pic of this or at least a link on the Poppet-along? People who follow the Poppet-along don't always catch these posts and we all love to know what is happening with the pattern. Cross reference is much appreciated.

Hope your ankle is feeling better. I'm not good at hand sewing seams myself.

He's kind of a mix between the two.  The Whispers of the Heart Baron has a green vest and a red and yellow polka dot bow.  He also has more pointy ears

The Cat Returns version has the purple vest and blue bow, and he's more human like in appearance
