I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but it's the best that I can think of. Let me know if it should be somewhere else!
I'm making my first poppet, using Ghillie's pattern, and the legs seem way out of proportion to the rest of the body. They're half an inch longer than the torso (including the neck), and several inches longer than the arms. Is this supposed to happen? Do poppets just have freakishly long legs?

I love personal swaps!

That sounds about right, actually. It looks strange until you get the whole thing stuffed and jointed. Then, it's cute! Chances are, your legs (from the hip down) are longer than your torso, and longer than your arms, too.  Wink
