Pee-Wee's friend, always a nice place to sit, Chairry!  I made one that I just totally redid; she was too skinny, this one's nice and chubby Smiley  I know she's not really to scale with her playhouse buddy, but if I'd made her bigger she would have been HUGE and now she's a nice doable size!

Posing them, uh, posed a problem.  I have tried straight pins to stick things together and that usually works great but Pee-Wee didn't really want to sit!  I was wondering if any of y'all had good tips on securing your amis together for photos?  Safety pins?  Grateful for your help!  Thanks for lookin'!

Okay, so, when I saw the thumbnail for this project on the main page, I gasped out loud because I was geekin'. I geek-gasped.
I love, love, love, love it. When I showed my fiance your Pee Wee post a couple weeks ago, his reaction was "Aw, sweet! He's totally awesome. He needs that chair that freakin' talks, though." His gonna dig this probably as much as I do. She's perfect!

For posing--do you use wire in your amis arms/legs/torsos? I use wire armatures in my human amis, and its helpful for creating and maintaining sitting positions.
