Well, he's been about six months in the making (on and off, of course, and allowing for the time my sewing machine was broken) but he's finally finished. He was a commission from a friend.


Link, he come to town, come to save the Princess Zelda . . .


He's very stern.


From the back you can see his sword sheath and shield hung on his back as well as the pouches on the back of his belt. The pouches have snap buttons to close them and both of the belts have snap buttons hidden on them as well so they are fully removable, as is his tunic, leggings, gauntlets, arm . . . lings, and boots.


Close-up of gauntlets and boots.


He has pipe cleaners in his fingers so he can hold on to both his sword and shield.


Another angle.


The back of the shield, showing the arm straps and the little strap that holds onto the hilt of the sword when he's wearing them on his back.


Holding onto the sword. His fingers are so cute! The sword is made of foam with a popsicle stick core. The yellow is painted on there and the triangle symbol is carved into the foam itself on both sides.




The shield is made of foamcore board and painted with acrylics, then finished with woodfinish to make it shiny.

He also has an ocarina.

It's made of sculpey. The yellow tri-force is painted on and it's coated in woodfinish as well.







I was really please with the way he came out and he was a little bit hard to give up, but my friend really likes him, so that made me happy. Still, there is an empty place on my shelf now Cry Haha, but he was really fun to make. I love all the little details the character has and I had fun plushifying them. I used ghilie's poppet pattern as a starting point, but resized and altered most of the pieces to make him look more masculine and whatnot. Anyway, hope you like and thanks for looking!

 Shocked Holy cow! I love all the details! You did a fabulous job on him. I'm totally blown away by all his accessories - the ocarina is so cool, those tiny gloves look awesome! And, his hands! They're so perfect and cute (sorry, I have a weird thing about doll fingers... Undecided)....I love seeing him playing the ocarina!

Did you use acrylic paint for his face? His features look so nice and neat (I've always just used the safety eyes).

You did an amazing job! I hope they compensate you well for all your hard work! The details are what makes him perfect. I think the ocarina seals the deal. It' just makes the doll so much more special. The poseable fingers are great! And I love his sword and shield. You paid attention to every detail I can think of!
Great job!

Thanks! Haha, I was really pleased with his hands as well. It took me a few times drafting but I finally came up with a five fingered pattern that really looked like human hands. And yeah, I did use acrylics for his eyes and eyebrows. The black line of his mouth and the ones around his eyes are fabric marker. I gave the commissioner (hahah) the choice of several different methods and he chose paints. I like the safety eyes as well, though, my own two regular poppets have them Smiley
