Er yeah.. when I was making the body of the doll I was thinking that she looked like a stargazer, then playing around with her afterwards I ended up with zombie poses, and the "Hail Illupalazo" pose from Excel Saga.

Anyhow, she's all hand made, stuffed with recycled scraps from other sewing projects and done in the Waldorf style of dollmaking, except for the wool stuffing part o_O She's about 13" tall. Her hair is mohair, skin and eyes are cotton, clothing is some kind of acrylic mess and lace XD.

and pics...



The hair, as it was being looped in, and after I finished it. Right now my hair is green, but when I started the doll it was pink, and just before that is was purple and green. So I did the hair rainbowy colour because my hair colour changes a lot.


Naked! Also the stargazer pose.. looks a bit wierd o_O Note the flowery button arm hinges Cheesy Arms and legs move.



In her panties, note the snap on the back of the lacey bra Cheesy I had a half hour argument with my roommate while playing scrabble in swedish (which I don't speak XD) about whether or not the panties should be lacey. He won. Also, since taking these pics I've trimmed the atrocious loose threads.




Fully clothed. Front, Back, Zombie shot XD The sweater is a lot like my favourite sweater, but a lot bulkier. The pants are the same as a pair I revamped to fit me recently. They also are just turned up instead of being hemmed. I'm a lazy bugger that way XD


Close up of the face, hopefully you can see the labret piercings. No mouth. The reason being that the style of doll really isn't supposed to have a face put on it at all becuase the child (though this is definitely not a children's doll) is supposed to imagine the face of their doll.

Comments and criticisms welcome.

She's adorable!  Love all the details (and the photos)!  Since you are "the child" I think adding the few facial details very appropriate.  How many Barbies have gone the way of hair cuts and magic marker make up?  Many... very many....
