I just finished my very first Swap and made my partner some little cast members (park workers) from two of her favorite rides.  I did a bunch of research & picked my Disney addict hubby's mind and came up with the following:

Female Cast Mini from the Haunted Mansion


I used some fabric markers to get the stripe details on the blouse and apron and cut up some lace for the, well, lace trim.  My favorite is the lacey/batty headpiece.  It's just a little fleece and lace, but it really looks like the real deal.



Male Cast Mini from Tower of Terror

(sorry for the blur; we were trying for an arty look that didn't really happen)

He's not as elaborate, but he's got his details too: seed beads for buttons and gold yarn trip on the hat (along with some more fabric marker details) and sleeves.  I was going to try the great coat that the cast members wear in the winter, but I ran out of time.

Faces were stitched with simple french knots & straight stitches.  Dark shoes are just painted on with acrylics

I'm sorry the pictures aren't better and I didn't get any great detail pictures.  I modified a pattern from a Japanese designer, Runo.  http://dollmaker.nunodoll.com/mini/mini.html  I love her patterns.

I'd love to hear what you think.

These are so very cute! Adorable! Those are my two favorite rides as well! (Hi, my name is Spooky Pooky and I am also a Disney-a-holic. Cheesy)

And thank you for the pattern link! I love these mini dolls! Will definitely have to bookmark it. Again, great dolls! Love the attention to detail and such a good, original idea to sew dolls from her favorite ride!
