So a friend of mine had a small tube of rubber- probably a shoelace or something- that was black and flocked. While fiddling around aimlessly he threaded it onto a piece of wire, and inadvertently created a Poppet- sized whip. He instantly asked me for a Poppet to use it. Thus Roquel was born. She is made with the Elenore bodice with Poppet everything else.


I discovered that a pair of pants my grandmother never sewed together were cut from a skin tone knit with a tiny bit of stretch- perfect!- and with these optimal needle-sculpting conditions tried out for a collarbone and shoulder blades. I'm quite happy with them.



I could have sworn I had a pic of her with the whip, but I'm not finding it, so here's the obligatory naked pic- her hair is braided because she went through a brief middling phase of maybe being a Celt.

She looks so professionally done! The body looks amazing, and the eyes and ears look so great. WTG!

Thanks all!

You know, looking at her now, with that hair she totally could have been Merida from Brave. If that movie had been released at the time.

Artista83, sadly the fabric was just an unsewn pair of pants in my grandmother's craft closet. She could no longer talk by the time I found it so I couldn't ask her, and was not there when she bought it, so your guess would be as good as mine. It is a very even knit, kind of like a jersey except with only a little stretch and without the tendency to roll at the edges.

Unhelpful, I know.
