here's an Inigo Montoya doll i made for the lovely FoxyBlue in the Princess Bride swap! Unbeknownst to me, she collects barbies, so it was a WIN!

I started with a ken doll and went from there.....





it just goes to show.... there's nothing you can't achieve with a lil hot-glue and a good photo-editing program! Grin

he started out as the guy on the right in this pic....

I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

haha thanks guys! i (mostly) made his outfit but there was a lot of cheating involved. his pants are the jeans he came in except painted brown. his shirt i cut scraps of linen to appx a shirt pattern, then laid lil lines of hot-glue along his body where the seams would be and pressed them on. easy to tailor as i go! and the same with the vest and boots - scraps of soft leather i had laying around hot-glued on in pieces.... and the hair - also hot-glued on!  Wink i went to a hair shop here in town and bought a package of hair extensions - parted his natural hair and glued tracts of extensions all down in between the hair he already had. before i gave him a haircut his hair was longer than he was!  haha late one night while working on his hair (i do my best crafting when i ought to be sleeping) it occurred to me - you know you've crossed some kind of line when you realize that none of your friends would be all that surprised to discover that you were up til the wee hours of the morning hot-gluing hair extensions on a ken doll!  Grin

I know too well the crafting till the wee hours! The bad part for me is when I'm up so late I start taking shortcuts just to be done! Great work!

He looks great.
I also may need to steal the altered barbie/ken doll idea for swaps as I think it is brilliant.

This is so cool. I so that Princess Bride Swap gallery and thought you purchased that doll. You've done an amazing job. I'm sure that Barbie collection is overjoyed about such a wonderful new edition.
