Oskar has so much personality - where would we be without mad scientists, eh? Tongue I especially love his goggles and boots, and his hair is absolutely perfect, too. Your post describing him just tops off the whole package perfectly. Smiley

I've never quite been able to figure out how to best use synthetic fur for hair on dolls - if you don't mind my asking, how did you make and attach his hair?

It started out as a sample about 3x5
I smooshed it on his head and trimmed lil triangles off the back corners, under his ears. Cut a dart in the very back.
I cut lil slits near the front and pulled his ears through, then i stitched it to his head. Still needed something, so I took a triangle I'd trimmed off, and gave him a widow's peak.
I love the way it turned out.

Hope this made sense (I've had some serious lack of sleep time this week! Working on an addition to the house!!)
