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....

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
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!

"Sword sold separately".  Cheesy This is awesome and so much better than Ken dolls! There needs to be a line of Princess Bride dolls. Or at least a Westley.   Roll Eyes A girl can dream, right?
