I decided (a year ago) to make dolls for my friends for their birthday. I thought it would be a nice way to show I cared. Yeah, no experience making dolls made these.



My best friend loves Dante's Divine Comedy, so I made her a Dante doll. I modeled him after illustrations I found of him. I embroidered laurels onto his cap and included a rope for his belt because he uses it to descend a level of the Inferno.




An Edward Cullen doll. Yeah, he's creepy. I tried to make a peacoat for him. Made this for a friend as well.



Finally my attempt at Inigo Montoya. Another one of my friends really likes Princess Bride so I decided to make her Inigo and the Dread Pirate Roberts, but I only go to Inigo. I can't get his hair right. I added a goatee and I need to add facial features (like a nose and mouth).

Comments and criticism are more than welcome!

I love Inigo!  I see no need for a nose or mouth.  Noses are so hard to recreate!

Debbies only get respect in the knitting world.  How unfair is that?

Because Poe wrote on both of them.

Anyone up for a Jasper Fforde swap?

Great job!  Inigo is definitely my favorite, but you did an awesome job on all of them.

Thanks for the feedback! I'm glad Inigo is recognizable. All I need to do now is make him a sword.

lovesclutter that is awesome! You're the first person to wist anything I've made. And, let's face it, who wouldn't want to have their very own Inigo?

Well, wists are there for that reason. I don't believe I've been wisted yet. And I'm past leet. If I had knowledge of the other characters, I would have probably wisted those as well. Great start.

I do poppets. Fun and fantastical. If you become a friend, I think you can pm Ghilie for the pattern. It has great instructions. You will be assimilated, as she says. I started here in January and I have made 8 so far.
