For the poppet/ami swap my partner Smeddley loves belly dancing stuffs so I crafted up an awesome pair of Bunny belly dancing poppets =D I trolled her pinterest for a few, then I trolled pinterest in general for every belly dancing picture I could find for some ideas XD Well I wont torture everyone with to long of an intro =D so here they are!

(Pardon my terribly un-imacculate pond in the background XD)
The lovely pair


Some of the little details on the little bunny girl, her ring (craft wire, some of my japanese glass bead collection, and a random diamond shaped bead I found in my box of belly rings =D) Her little gold bangles and a jade/quartz composite ring...and ofc some of the beading on her little top


Her little zills, which I made using those little shank buttons that you cover with fabric and snap together =D, well the innershank that has that little metal piece that actually gets sewn to w/e your sewing it to (im brain fried pardon my lack of proper terminology haha) xD I snapped that little metal piece off and glued the ribbon in a loop to the top of the inner shank, then glued that (love that e6000!!) to the inside of the outer button and voila!


Her hair, which is extra soft yarn which was unraveled strand by strand till her hair was ultra soft then braided into this cute braid I found on Smeddley's pinterest =D


Her fluffy tail which is a pompom (made from the same fluffy yarn as her hair then brushed out to fluffy perfection), her necklace (the back of it) which is twisted and beaded pink craft wire, and her awesome tattoo's which were done with Sharpie's Stained* fabric pens and colored in with Elmers Painters* fabric pens


Her adorable little toes and her anklet made to match her necklace


A nice close up of her face which is all hand sketched and designed, the Scorpio tattoo on her ear and her painted fingernails =D False eyelashes and e6000 epic combination =D


Okies, here's the guy (I didnt get as many upshots of the guy cause my camera died right before I boxed them up haha)

His face is also hand sketched and painted on, His little collar was modeled after something similar on Smeddley's pinterest =D and his hat was to go with the collar but contrast and match the beading on his pants for a little exotic flare


His little pants and a lovely shot of his bad ass abs =D and ofc a shot of his tattoo's, a cute tribal bunny (ha ha get it!! he's a bunny with a bunny tattoo!!) his harem pants are entirely my design (and what a pain they were!), the beads were done by hand to add flare and color


His cute fluffy tail, made ofc just like his partner (the girl bunny) brushed to fluffiness, his hair however was not seperated by strand so his hair has a different look and texture to it...you can sort of see the side splits in the harem pants which were sequined all around the splits for the awesome look and it finished off the edges nicely...and OFC his wicked wings tattoo's =D


Ahhh there we go, the better side shot to show the side splits in the harem pants as well as his awesomely buff arms and fingers =D I couldnt find any little gold bangles that would fit over his hands, so unfortunately his little wrists are kind of bare =D but his toenails and fingernails were painted an off white just to add detail


All the outfits were entirely made by me, no patterns just random shapes I messed with until I got the look I was pleased with =D The waist bands are elastic so they are form fitting without having snaps or velco to take from the look, and the bands around the bottom of the guys pants are elastic'd as well to give more poof to the center of the pants =D

Another cute shot of the little dancing couple


Hope everyone likes them!!
Comments most welcome!

Yeahhh the pond is usually crystal clear with awesome 1-2ft long koi  in it, but a few years back someone poisoned the pond and killed our rare black n blue japanese koi as well as my brother's prized golden butterfly koi, both koi were about 1 1/2 feet long...atm there's two 8in shabunkin in there a red n a blue one, but you cant see em atm ofc haha

I also failed to mention that both their outfits were made from a single standard fat quarter of premium quilting fabric =D (in their own respective colors ofc) and aside from the girl poppet, the boy poppet's underwear was made from some random scrap fabric from one of my daughter's dresses XD

I'm definitely I got them done before I started on the yard work, between the wretched mosquito's and the damn poison ivy allllllll i do now is scratch XD though funny thing happened XD my mom came down to admire those two poppets and forgot they werent here hehehe!!
