Here's a poppet I made for a personal swap for Alchamy513. She said she wanted a zombie or something steampunk, so I decided to do both. I didn't take too many photos before I sent her....too excited to see what Alchamy513 would have to say. On her belt that you can't see in the pics, it has gears on it. I also didn't take any without the aviator cap and goggles on, but she has stitches on her forehead kinda hidden byher hair that have some blood dripping. Anyway...here she is. I like how she turned out....hope u do too!









I finally feel that with this poppet and the one I made Silverwing for the mini poppet swap came out just like I saw them in my head. Figured out the eyes and how to make the noses with clay.

She is so amazing!! I haven't tried the poppet pattern yet, but I could never make something this awesome!

Those eyes are really cool- did you paint them yourself?

She is fantastic! The eyes are amazing - both the shadowing and the bloodshot lines. Love the details in the outfit like the ruffled pantaloons and the pins on her boots.

Oh gosh Linda!
She is gorgeous!
Her eyes are perfect! And I really love her blushy-bruised cheeks! I think I am going to really have to put clay in my poppets noses, I think it will make a really big difference...

Everything I have done and learned have been because of all the wonderful poppet makers here on craftster. The eyes were painted using Alwaysinspired's tutorial on how to make inserted eyes. She doesn't just show to insert them, she shows how she paints them...so thanks Alwaysinspired!!

I just used scrapbooking chalk in black and green and just used my fingers to rub into the eye area before adding the eyes. I always liked how Malibukasey made her eyes with the liner and tried using sharpie, and it looked nothing like hers. So I found if you cut out a cat eye shape slightly larger than the eyes in felt and add them to the back of the safety eyes...you get that awesome look!

I have had help and inspiration from Clonedbravo for the pantaloons, and the easy peasy dress pattern by Ghilie, and the corset pattern from Craftewoman...I hope I got the names right...if not I apologize. Also the boot tute from Eliea. It really has been a combined effort whether they realize it or not. So a HUGE thanks to everyone!!  Wink

Averyg...I never used clay until this poppet and the one for the swap, and I love the results...it makes it even more unique I think cuz we all seem to sculpt different noses.

She's super cute! Very Jim Henson-esque. I love how those long eyelashes make her look so sweet and demure even though her intentions might not be...

I am new to the site and new to crafting.  I would love to make this poppet or anything with a cute zombie motif for a very special friend.  I saw on another post there is a poppet pattern.  How do I find these?  Thank you so much, this is just amazing!

For those of you who don't know...just PM Ghilie for the pattern. Then the rest is up to your imagination!

Also check the poppet along for friendly help, ideas, and most importantly to show us your amazing creations!!  Grin

Oh wow. That is one fine poppet. I was morbidly fascinated when I saw the title, I'm so glad I looked!

Must say, I LOVE those stars on her outfit. What an adorable touch!

Thanks! I was trying to make the stars look like something from an aviator uniform...cuz that's what her coat is. I also put wings I made on the side of the arm.

I really appreciate all the comments from everyone! Thanks!
