Introducing Severus Snape. He stands 16 inches (42 cm) tall. Severus holds his wand in his right hand.
This doll is cloth with a needle sculpted face with colored pencil shading and acrylic paint features. He has  posable fingers. Snape is a completely original doll from my own patterns. Okay. now get ready for picture overload!











You can't tell from the picture, but I took care in sculpting Snape's wand. Too bad it's now hidden in his hand and all of the detail is lost.

Knowing now that Snape sacrificed himself for the good of both the wizzarding and the muggle worlds, makes me feel a tenderness for this poor character who lost love to someone else, and lived all of his life with such rancor. So he was not an evil character that I made a doll of. I would NEVER make a doll of "He who must not me named!"

Snape is off to his new home tomorrow. Tell me what you think. I'd love to read your comments. Did I portray him well in my sculpting?

It's great. His face is full of bitterness and anger, just right.  I agree with you, he is an amazing character, to have been through everything he did and to hide as Dumbledore says "the best of you" from nigh on everyone.

Thanks for all of the kind comments. Sharalee, you obviously haven't seen the movies or read the Harry Potter books. He is Professor Severus Snape the potions teacher at Hogwarts school for witchcraft and wizardry. A man with a mysterious and sordid past. One who was once thought to be a villain, and then later discovered to have been undercover and so sacrificed his entire life for the world of wizards and Muggles (non magic folk). Once hated and now revered by Harry Potter fans the world over.
