I've been wanting to do a poppet for aaaaaaages, but I was so scared, cos they all look so good (and I thought they looked too hard), but I finally plucked up the courage, and asked for some beautiful skin coloured fake suede for my birthday, and here are the results...



I know it's my first poppet, and I still have a lot to learn, and improve on, but I am actually quite chuffed with my little dingleberry (yep - I know what the word means, lol!! Grin ). I used ghilie's fab tute and pattern.

Here's her little head pre goth-up: I saw a tip on here somewhere about scratching the back colour off the eyes, and colouring it in again, so I did, with black and gold.
Her hair is a crocheted yarn wig, using the amazing ghilie's tute (thankies!), and normal DK black wool split down with a 40p ball of scrap pink wool with silver from the market!


Here she is in her nekkid glory (at least she had the decency to cover her modesty, lol!) I tried boobie scultping. And I failed. Badly  Cry but at least her corset covers up the worst of it!


Close up of her face (sorry about the weird photo colour??):
I used fake human eyelashes, and shaded round her eyes to give the goth look, along with a ton of earrings and a nose stud. You can't really tell from this pic, but her hair is HUGE!!!


You can't really see it, but her corset is made from teeny little hooks and eyes, and she has crocheted lace knickers. Her tutu is fluorescent pink and black layers, and she has some ribbon detailing on her leg and arm, with a little tattoo round her wrist.


Gratuitous cat shot (fat lad is quite taken with her - she needed taking away before he got up to no good  Cheesy)



Phew!!! Can you tell I'm rather pleased, lol?!

Any comments/criticisms gratefully received to make my next one better!!

She is amazing.  I can't believe she is your first.  I've been wanting one for a while but was scared as well.  I thought about starting today (instead of studying like I should be doing).  However, my printer is broken, so I can't print out the pattern pieces.

I'm not much of a poppet person, but, I like her.  And, she's not over the top goth either.  You did a good job on her!

This might sound kinda funny, but the if you make the pattern 100% on your computer screen you can actually hold a piece of paper up the screen and trace the pattern... That way you don't have to worry about your printer!

Anyways, her transformation from just a regular poppet to a goth poppet is amazing! I love what you did with her eyes!
