I originally made this poppet for a personal swap (but that fell through...oh well  Smiley). Arwen has been finished for a couple months, all except her dress, which I finally finished hand sewing this afternoon...I hate jersey knit...but...Yay! I have no idea what to do with her... Cheesy

The (gray cotton chamois) slippers took 5 tries to get right...hahaha...I suck at shoes.  Cheesy I based her description more off the book than the movie. She is an Elenor poppet with a ton of hair, really long fingers (wired), sparkly silver nail polish-painted eyes, lashes, elf ears!...  Smiley  Her tiara thingy is silver polymer clay (it was hard as a rock) mixed with mold-making clay that softened it up and made it flexible after being baked...then I painted it with the same sparkly silver nail polish I used for the eyes...added some bling... The underbust corset is the same material as the slippers and has eyelets on each side, and silver leaves and more crystals on the front. Well, here she is...my #6:






Thanks for looking!  Wink

You should be proud. She turned out gorgeous. I love her head dress and her under bust corset.
