1  silly gallic doodle! :P in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by Graciechan on: November 08, 2009 07:21:20 AM
Well hopefully next year I'm spending some time away at school in France, to meet new people and improve my French skillz Tongue and I was thinking about how I'd have to be super stylish to contend with the Paris girls I'll be staying with lol. So... I did a random doodle thinking about clothes and colours. Feel free to laugh at my ineptitude XD

3  Cleo Lorretta the Easter Leopard Lolita Poppet!! (image frilly!!) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Graciechan on: March 16, 2008 06:23:18 AM
meet my fourth poppet, Cleo the Easter Lolita!!

in this photo her head looks wierd, but it's cute really!!

I couldn't get any photos that showed her eyes well *sigh* they are brown 16mms, eyelashes from malibukasey!! thanks mk!! leopard fabric from the lovely kimscosykitchen!!! thankyou!!!

show us your pretty dress!

it was made from ghilie's easy peasy pattern, with a heart printed sash, lace and a halter ribbon.

a bad pic of her eyes::

she's an easter lolita, so of course she's gotta have a basket full of chicks!

why do ALL these photos make her head look lumpy? *grr*

side view:

'nother front view!!

i'm sorry about my finger being present in some of these pics, it just kept getting in the way!!

purple flower headband:

just look at her huge pink hair!! it was 2 balls for 1. I was planning to give her black hair, but this was all they had, and i was in a rush...and it looks cute!! i'm glad of my non- crafty craft stores...

from the back:

I hope you like her!!! a huge THANKYOU to malibukasey and kimscosykitchen!!!
have a very happy easter everyone!!!!

ok, here is a lacy dress i whipped up for the lovely Sparkle:

it looks a bit loose on her, but that's because it's not got snaps on yet (it has now)
she loves it!! It's a "cheats" dress, i used the ruffled front of an ugly vintage shirt my granny gave to me  Wink
it looks a bit wonky here, but that's because of one side folding under itself. it's perfectly symmetrical really!

princess peach, get out of the background! you're up next!! *such a poser Cheesy*

here is the beautiful, super cute dress ghilie sent me for princess peach. it fits her lovely!! it was posted in this thread before by ghilie herself, but I thought i'd show you it being modelled by my girl Smiley

she wouldn't leave off the cutesy "look at me" pose!! but i must say it suits her perfect! it even matches her hair Cheesy

once again, THANKYOU GHILIE!!

6  NAMED: Sparkle du Snowbelle , the snow princess!!!(img frosty) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Graciechan on: March 09, 2008 05:50:07 AM
Thankyou for the beautiful name suggestions everyone!! I loved them all.

Ok, this poppet took me AGES to make, because my machine broke down halfway through  Cry
But yesterday it got fixed, and today she is finished!!

She is a shy snow princess. She loves icicles, snowflakes, penguins, winter, springtime and frozen lollies Cheesy but she doesn't like heatwaves, geometry, and sports lessons.

here she is:

she has the HUUUUUGGGEESSTTT hair EVER, because it's made of about a million tracks. you can make good pigtails though  Cheesy

here she is again:

she has snowflake printed felt for the inside of her ears, and it's really sparkly!! but I couldn't get a good picture  Sad

say hello  Smiley

I'm sorry about the pics being blurry, they weren't on my camera  Huh

the poor girl's a winter poppet, obviously, so she was a bit confused by the daffodils:

here she is with the spring flowers again!!

her dress is made from ghilie's wonderful, easy peasy pattern. It's got teeny tiny strawberries on it Smiley

I've got some marabou trims and stuff to make her a coat, but now she's used to the springtime (she even said she liked it) she needs some spring things!!

she was partially inspired by Malibukasey's Fable,the snow sprite poppet, so thanks MK!!

but she has a problem:: once again, I can't think of a name for her!! can anyone else??
one beautiful name FOUND

I hope you all like her, I'm really proud Smiley

EDIT::she's got some close ups of her eyes plus eyelids!!

I'm sorry about how HIDEOUSLY blurry this pic is. Here eyes are green, it makes her look very sylph-like Smiley

In this one she looks as though her nose is deformed. It reallly isn't!! the shadow made it wierd.

It shows the colour of her eyes a bit better.

Thankyou for all the LOVELY comments people!! I think she is my best one yet *shhh*

ok, some pictures I couldn't resist:
sneaky peeky at poppet 3!!

remember,Teddy,(my cat no.1), poppets are friends, not food!

(shortly after this photoshoot teddy decided poppets were food, after all. A rescue team was sent in after poor madylin.  Cry)

Pumpkin,(cat no.2) meet princess peach!! no, look at her,not the camera. look at her...

Pumpkin showed no interest whatsoever in Princess, but it's a cute photo, dontcha think?

urgh, I am captivated by this pink nekomimi from runo dolls!! I think I could use the poppet pattern to make it, or try *gasp* the other pattern!!

ok, here is a crappy tut for adding volume to your poppet's hair. I don't know if you even need it, but I find it useful, and so easy!!!

cut some lengths of yarn the length of your poppet's current hair, in the same yarn as your poppet's hair (or not, if you want her to have highlights!). tie it in the middle like so::

then fold it over, so you have a little bundle of hair. I think you know where i'm going...

that clown hair is making my mouth water!!! I am drooling to see!!!

now you have a good little volumizer, choose where you want your poppet to have some BIG hair and sew it on, UNDERNEATH your top layer of hair like so:

your poppet now hopefully has bigger hair!! or more anyway  Cheesy
I find this method REALLY useful for doing fringes as well, as you can sew it on at the top of the head and next to each ear as well.
