This was my first cupcake doll.  I made it for pioneer9 in the Winter Nerd Battles swap.  I followed ghilie's pattern, but I didn't joint the doll in all the recommended places.  I did a trial, and I thought he could stand up better when I only jointed the knees, and I thought the joint in his elbow made him seem less muscle-y, so I left that out, too.  Cheesy





I thrifted some t-shirts to cut up for his tops, after many attempts at using other materials.  It was also my first boy doll, and I went through many, many iterations trying to figure out his hair.  I ended up using fake "grizzly fur," which was a challenge, but I think it turned out okay.



I saw during my research that he seemed to have a belt with a side release buckle...which I just happened to have, so I made him a little belt, too.  It ended up serving a purpose, though, because I had to make his pants a little larger to accommodate the big feet and narrow waist.  Cheesy



I just cut out a hexagon and drew his tag on paper because I couldn't find an acceptable metal alternative.



Over all I think he turned out pretty well, especially for a first attempt at cupcakes, boy dolls, and character dolls.  Grin  Thanks for looking!
