Meet Barbra Gordon. She's a librarian by day.




Her hair was done using the method that lanikins used for her Leslie poppet. It's rather messy, but gives wonderful results.


And what does she carry around in her bag? Why books of course.


But Barbara isn't just a librarian. She's also Batgirl.


Close up of her mask. I made it based on a simple fleece hat, and just added slits through which I stuck the bat ears. (The entire outfit is made from butter suede and felt, so I left raw edges as it wouldn't unravel.)


A view from behind showing off her cape.


Her gloves. (I spent a lot of time figuring these guys out.)


And her boots.

She was made for batgirl, and is now hanging out with her.

Wow, so much work went into this, I can tell - it turned out amazing! I can't quite seem to get the hang of poppets, so I love seeing other people's work. Hitting *this rocks* because it totally does. Smiley

She came out AWESOME!!!  That hair method is a pain in the rear, but it really does make for a more natural looking wig, and you pulled it off wonderfully.  GREAT WORK!!!! Grin

It is AMAZING!! I can't even believe it! I'm not even sure which "look" I like best, they are both phenomenal. I can't believe how lucky I am to own this. I was just looking at a Batgirl Pullip doll and suddenly this arrived, and it's so much better. It is seriously probably the coolest thing I have ever received. I wish you could see it in person, it's so professional and well made. <3
