I feel kind of weird posting this guy when so many of my projects are currently taking up space on the board but... I'm going to anyway.  Wink

My new 'Chibi' doll pattern is short and a lil chubby, so the tall and lanky Sherlock seemed like the perfect character to make. Totally logical, right? Tongue



He is approx. 13inches tall and stands by himself with a little coaxing.



His fingers are needle sculpted - another new thing for me.  Can you tell I like new things? Cheesy



Because of his weird(ly cute!) proportions, I had to omit some details, but had to add the little cute do-dad (technical term Wink) on the back of his coat.



I decided to give him shiny shoes to break up the matte black of the rest of his clothes. That's also new, and I like it! Probably a lot of shiny shoes in my future.



His coat and scarf are removable - and you can better see his proportions without them.  He has cute little doll buttons on his shirt which is unbuttoned in true Holmes style.



And that's it! Thanks for taking a look, and sorry for clogging up the board! Wink

Didn't clog it for me. I just took a trip down cyber lane, to try and find a name for that doo dad.  Shocked
It led me to some interesting things, but not the name for it. Sorry.
I know it is British in origin. It has to do with a placket. But I can't find what that button buckle/strap thing on the back is called. And wondered why they put it there??? I have seen them, but have not known what they are for.

They say, curiosity kills the cat.  Grin I don't agree. That just makes me smarter than the mouse!

Very interesting doll you have crafted. I like him. Short is good!!! I am nearly 6 foot tall...and a girl! I am used to short people. Try finding someone to dance with? I wear flats. Just so I fit in. But short is cute, all the same.

You did a great job with your little guy. He is very cute. Love the blue eyes. And eyebrow details, too. His clothes are nice. He looks very professional!

Love him, as usual!  I so hope I can own one of your dolls one day!

I've seen those pieces on the back referred to as "back belts" but I don't know if that is what they're actually called.  The buttons are usually traditional decorations on frock coats, and Sherlock's is kind of a frock/trench coat mash-up.   Cheesy

Love him! I love the way his hair turned out. And I'm really liking the embroidered faces. Makes me want to get an embroidery machine. 

Wonderful job! We love seeing your creations here on the board.

What she said!  Great job as usual! The face is fantastic.  Are you designing them yourself or have you found doll face software somewhere?

Haha, I love Craftster, every day I learn something new!  You can probably tell I have zero knowledge about 'real people' clothes - or what all the technical terms for things are. Wink

But thank you, so much, for the amazing feedback!  Cheesy You all are wonderful. <3

@MissingWillow I design them myself with Embird. Smiley
