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 Smiley



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 Sad

thanks for looking!
if you have any comment to improve her, I'm open, as She's not given yet! Cheesy

edit to say: Aww! thanks for the features Cheesy it's my first one! And thanks for all the nice comments! The Googles are comming!

C'est magnifique! I think it's beautiful, and my boyfriend says I should make one, too! I love her ears Cheesy

Do you mean a bow, or an atlatl that throws spears?

For her goggles, you can cut a piece out of a big coke bottle.

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

I'm sorry to hear about what your cousin is going through, but I'm sure she's going to love this.  Smiley

I totally thought of making an Avatar way back when the movie posters were first coming out, but I just never got around to it...
But she looks really great!
I think that your cousin is really lucky to receive her
