Personal poppet swap? PM me!

« on: February 19, 2011 05:15:12 PM »

When I first came across poppets about two years ago I knew that I had to make poppets of characters from one of my most favourite book series ever, Cassie Clare's "Mortal Instruments" series. Well two years later/ countless poppets later I was finally starting to feel comfortable in my poppet making abilities to attempt making Jace and Clary.

These poppets were lots of firsts for me. Jace was the first boy poppet I have made. This was the first time that I have made individual fingers and put pipecleaners in them (which may look intimidating but isn't as hard as you think it would be), my first time making actual clothes (SQUEE! I have only ever made easy peasy dresses before- and pants? Yeah, I was so afraid to make them for so long but they are actually extremely easy), my first time making humanoid poppets, and my first time painting a poppet (I used acrylic paint and a BBQ skewer to paint the runes on), oh! And my first time using eyelashes.

Here are some reference photos:

Here is Jace and Clary together:


And here is their clothing in more detail:


And a close-up of Clary:


And all of Jace's Runes:






And as always I have to thank ghilie for sharing her fantabulous pattern with us! And I have to thank craftewoman for her wonderful clothing patterns!

Well done.  I like the six pack.

My first poppet was a male created for an Angel swap and it was a challenge. (I have it as one of my personal accomplishments on my page)  I agree that the clothing presented the most work.  I had to create a pattern for pants, a dress shirt, tie and trenchcoat.  (I know dumb for a first?)   I DID not add any extra anatomical appendages.  Maybe nest time. LOL

I may try the poseable fingers for the next one - AGAIN - well done.
