I am a member of the twilight_crafts Livejournal, and I offered to make a poppet for the winner of our most recent challenge.  The girl who won let me have free creative reign other than saying she was Team Jacob (great minds think alike!).  So I whipped out my scissors and machine and went to town!

Introducing Guadalupe Uley!


Here's her story from my deviantART:

Guadalupe is the daughter of Sam and Emily (Sam being the alpha of the main Quilette pack) some time in the future. She takes after her cousin Leah, and hangs out with "Uncle Jacob" so much that it really shows in her behavior and fashion sense.

She is also good friends with Renesme and doesn't mind being around the vampires as much as her father. She and Nessie bonded over having an odd up-bringing and both being hybrids.

Lupe, as she prefers to be called, wears her hair short and in a mohawk. This causes her wolf form to have shorter fur except for a long mane down her head and upper back.



Lupe also has two tattoos, a dream catcher on her arm and wolf and human prints on her abdomen (the abdomen tattoos were based on a tattoo that I actually have!).





  The jewelry she wears was passed down from one of the original pack members.


Lupe was made using the Pretty Poppet pattern and stands a little over a foot tall. She was my first machine-sewn poppet and I love her! Her hair is faux fur that was attached by hand, and her tattoos were done with a scrapbooking marker (non-acidic). Her jewelry is made out of some turquoise chips and small red wooden beads.

Sorry that some of the pictures are blurry, she just wouldn't sit still!  Lupe arrived at her new home this weekend and the winner absolutely loves her, so I succeeded! Smiley

Great job!
Love how well your tattoos turned out.  The winner must have been so excited to receive a Twilight Poppet of her own!

Ooo Firefox ate my first comment. =( I really love her, even though I've never read the books or seen the movie. I'm totally digging those tattoos, especially the dreamcatcher. You did an AMAZING job and that's one lucky contest winner.

Thank you guys so much!  I love the tattoos too, they're my favorite thing to add to poppets (maybe because I have so many?).  My own personal girl who I've yet to get pictures of has some too, she was my first try at tattooing poppets.

Thanks!  I mostly starting sewing without a plan, and then her personality developed along the way. Smiley

She's so cute... As with everybody else, I LOVE her tatoos. (They should be praised! You deserve it!) ...I would have been hesitant to give her up if I had made her.. all that work... must have been kinda hard... that's SO cute!

Aw, thank you!  I love her tattoos too, granted I love all tattoos so that's probably why most of my poppets end up having them!  It wasn't so hard for me to let her go because I knew she already belonged to a good home, but my mom was so attached.  She kept giving me a fake pout and saying "You can't give her away!"  Haha.
