I decided to make a poppet for my cousin that recently lost her mom (and grand-mother 2 month after that, the very same way her mom died).
I was going to make a random blue fairy, when another cousin that was home when I was attaching the legs said it looked like a Na'vi...Of course!
I lost contact with that cousin, but I've grew up with her, and I'm 110% SURE she adored the movie Avatar. So I went for it! Here's Neytiri!
She's stuffed with polyfill upcycled from teddies. Her body is blue felt, and I've painted the pattern and "lights".
Her cloths are some kind of a fake leather I had.
The face is done with acrylic paint.
The feather in her hairs is I believe from a roster, the beads are wooden and her bracelets are various glass & acrylic beads.
Her hairs are chenille.
She's a tad more carveous than the regular Na'vi!
Her necklace (made with feather in the movie...) is done with I think sea shell sticks which give a close enough effect
I'm still thinking of a way to make a spear or a... you know those things that throws arrows? (LOL at my french not wanting to translate tonight! >_<)
I would have made her googles but I have no acetate on hands
thanks for looking!
if you have any comment to improve her, I'm open, as She's not given yet!
edit to say: Aww! thanks for the features
it's my first one! And thanks for all the nice comments! The Googles are comming!
