A NEW day, a NEW doll... another poppet!

« on: August 14, 2010 10:31:09 PM »


Hi all!  This little gal sailed across the ocean to live with Averyg.  It all started with the Poppet Mini Swap 2. Averyg made Alice in Wonderland for me after I received the Mad Hatter.  She really liked the poppet I made and said it reminded her of a cross between Esmerelda and Pirates of the Carribbean.   Taking those cues, I did some online research and based her loosely on Calypso, the witch.  When all was done, she needed company on her travels, so I sent a little monkey friend along with her.

Here's the link to the Poppet Along: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=205341.0

And now on with more pics. Front and side views.


In her undergarment, edged with lace at bottom and sleeves. Underneath is a black crinoline and turquoise blue lacy panties... can't find a pic of that folks, sorry. Sad


Earrings, tiara and hair detail:

Mother of pearl, shell and string belt detail:

Monkey:

And gratuitous nekkid shot:

Thanks for looking, Q's & C's always welcome!

Wow!! She's lovely!!  WHere do you get the eyes?? I'm assuming they're the paint-your-own, but I can never find any.

You did a fantastic job and I love her!!

YAY! I love her so much!
I will try to get a picture of her crinoline for you!
I think she "ROCKS"! (but I might be biased)

she is adorable. and the monkey is great.  He must have been fiddly.  Actually the whole thing looks like it took ooddles of patience. 

i want to make another poppet, but I am procrastinating as it was sooo fiddly last time (not helped by the fact I made Deema out of suede and not stretchy fabric).

Thanks blossom1044. I had to redo the monkey's face because I cut the chin out at an angle and it stretched funny.  I know how you feel about "fiddly" - I find that flannel was easier because it didn't shift as much.  And it's easier the 2nd time around, so go for it!
Thanks beth8144, I had fun with the hair, using 3 different yarns. It was nice sewing each piece straight onto her head - better for controlling the look. Wink  I really wanted to make her a kimono because she looked like one of those Japanese lion warrior guys, haha!
