So you don't get to see it in the movies, but in the books, Dobby does wear clothes and he puts together some pretty zaney outfits. That is what inspired this doll.







I hope that people don't think that he likes Slitherin because of the green tie. He just likes all colors!

This is awesome. I really like the style. He reminds me of the old marionettes.
I'm curios as to what he's made out of. I like the texture of the face, but I can't tell if it's the material or your paint job that gives it that look.
I was also wondering how big he is?

Thanks for the kind words.
He's made entirely out of cloth. His face is needle sculpted and then tinted with colored pencils and the painted using acrylic paint.
He stands about 9 inches tall.

His face is cloth. It's a 4 piece head. Two for the face and two for the back of the head. Then it's needle sculpted. Remember those cabbage Patch dolls from the 80's? It's the same technique. Stitches are pulled and the stuffing underneath is manipulated, and sewn into place.

I'm blown away. I just looked up needle sculpting on youtube, and can't believe you pulled off Dobby's head so well. I would have guessed you had used sculpey or something.

It is just so rad. I still can't believe it is cloth.

I bow before your talent.
