Hi everybody! It's been a LONG time since I've posted anything.
My friend Ronald asked me to create a Jack Skellington doll for his girlfriend's birthday. After working long and hard, here he is!





I put a penny in there to show that his eye sockets are actually sunken in. This was the most important aspect of the project for me, and I had never tried to do anything like it before. I think it's my favorite part of the whole doll.


The best full-length shot I could get. I apologize for my foot and the bed, my computer is being fiddly.

I designed him to be one-of-a-kind, and I didn't write the pattern down. I want her to have a doll that no one else has. He was a hand assassin with all of the tiny seams, but he was totally worth it.
So, what do you guys think?? Questions and comments welcome!!!


R.A.

Wow! Thanks to everyone for the great comments! It's nice to come back and see so much positive feedback.
It makes me want to post more often. I've come up with at least 2 new ideas since finishing Jack, so maybe he was damming up my creativity or something.
