I had brunette_bombshell as a partner in the Mini Poppet Swap. She's a costume design major with leanings to the 20's, 30's and 40's. So the gangster and flapper poppets were born!



I was originally only going to make the flapper, but as soon as the idea for her fixed in my head, she was already insisting on having a man with her, and she wasn't even cut out yet! But any poppeteer out there knows it's useless trying to argue with a poppet, so I gave into her. First time I've ever had a poppet insist on being arm candy though.

This is Leila Madison



Her dress is made with layers of hand stitched fringe so that it will really move when she's doing the Charleston



And her headband, complete with rhinestones and feathers



And this is Leila's boyfriend, Leo 'The Blade' Sorocco



Without his hat



Close up of his pinstripe suit. The tie's real and actually comes of and ties like a regular tie!

Another picture of them together



I have to admit that while I started the project with only Leila in mind, I ended up liking Leo better out of the pair.

C&C welcome!

I like them both. That has is astounding though! Is it your own pattern or did you get it from elsewhere?

Wow, the gangster suit is amazing - you've done a great job! I so admire people that can make miniature outfits for their dolls (I just wrap and sew mine and hope for the best!!) and Leo's is one of the best I've seen. I love them both xx

I just love them both. They are so cute and I dont blame her if I would chose to be arm candy too if I could.

Now I have "Mr. Pinstripe Suit" stuck in my head!

Great names, too...Leila is a fantastic flapper name.
