This is my first Valentine ever with the person I want to be with for the rest of my life, so this special, silly gift is in celebration of that! Cheesy

I made my boyfriend art dolls that are pretty faithful to what we look like and what we wear (yes, I do frequently wear a leopard print playsuit and he wears 70's jackets with big lapels... Go figure!) They're not finished yet, I've still got to put shoes on, add some little details here and there, neaten them up and package them so they look awesome. Still unsure of how good they look.... Any ideas you guys might have would be greatly appreciated. Matt's a record freak so I thought I might make some mini records/ record player etc to go with the doll like barbie accessories... Smiley


The faces look better in real life


And heres some links of the pix i used for reference

Will add pix when theyre completely done.

I love this idea and the dolls are adorable, both of you look great as dolls (maybe a little older than in real life  Roll Eyes). The idea of accessorized them is awesome, maybe you can make tiny jewelry and please add some awesome pair of shoes. Great gift!
