This is my second poppet, made with a lot of help from my mom. Smiley It is a depiction of Loial from the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan.







He has his long eyebrows and twitchy ear tuffs. The jacket has a working pocket that holds the green book perfectly (which opens and works!). He has buttons all over his jacket (cuffs, jacket tails, the front). The pants have a latch and open and close. The only things I would change would be the fabric of the shirt (it looks very hawaiian...) and give him eyelids. I did attempt that, but it didn't work out... Smiley Still, my last poppet had eyes painted on, so that was an improvement! I think the nose in particular helped to make him recognizable.

The hair was made from faux fur. I'm pleased about that because I haven't seen that method done before. Smiley
