1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Roquel, the dominatrix-ish poppet. on: June 06, 2013 07:32:36 PM
So a friend of mine had a small tube of rubber- probably a shoelace or something- that was black and flocked. While fiddling around aimlessly he threaded it onto a piece of wire, and inadvertently created a Poppet- sized whip. He instantly asked me for a Poppet to use it. Thus Roquel was born. She is made with the Elenore bodice with Poppet everything else.

I discovered that a pair of pants my grandmother never sewed together were cut from a skin tone knit with a tiny bit of stretch- perfect!- and with these optimal needle-sculpting conditions tried out for a collarbone and shoulder blades. I'm quite happy with them.

I could have sworn I had a pic of her with the whip, but I'm not finding it, so here's the obligatory naked pic- her hair is braided because she went through a brief middling phase of maybe being a Celt.

Meet Piper

She's my second poppet, and a dryad. She's made, very very carefully, from a woven upholstery suede. The yarn I used for her hair inspired her theme. It just screamed "TREES!" at me.

It probably helps that I've always really liked dryads...

3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Aurora, My first poppet! on: June 06, 2013 03:59:17 PM
Hello all!

Aurora was born far too long ago. I am terrible at posting things :/

Here she is before clothing and a proper hairstyle:

I made her from some black microsuede that had absolutely ZERO stretch, so needlesculpting her was quite a task. She has some strange creases as a result. I didn't have the jointing locations down at all, so she's a bit wide- legged, but she still stands!

I hand painted her eyes with student's acrylics, but opted not to put lashes on her, given they would have been invisible on her skin anyway! She's wearing a sock- sweater I made using this tute- https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=216844.msg2333354#msg2333354, and a super mini circle skirt.

Turns out the yarn I used for her hair (moonshine or something similar, long out of make I believe) will just tear apart at the slightest tug, so her buns and braids are permanent now. I made her little mini scrunchies!
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Long Legged Sock Monkeys! (pic Chubby) on: June 04, 2013 07:49:14 PM
I've been away from Craftster for a while, but I'm back with pics of some of the monkeys I've made in the interim!

The first monkey I made for my boyfriend at the time, a sort of in-costume-portrait of him in sock monkey form. The man in question being on the slender, tall side, I opted to make the monkey from a knee high sock, and the results were surprisingly cool. So, here is Lanky the pirate sock monkey!

Here he is with the man in question.

They get along swimmingly!

My lanky monkeys were quite popular- here is another one I made who's original sock ear went missing and needed replacing. His name is wonky, and he has socks and gloves.

Some normally sized monkeys- the wench was for the sister of Lanky's owner.

And finally the mini monkey- made with a child's sock. I got a bit obsessed with figuring out the results for different sized socks. Actually made one tiny tiny monkey from an infant sock- size one for whatever that means- which was adorable, but sadly I didn't get a photo before he was snatched up by a friend. He is sitting next to a recipe card for reference, so Aussie commercial supermarket shoppers will know how big he is  Smiley

Alright, sorry for overloading you with monkey pics!

5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / poppet/elenore on: July 14, 2008 01:08:11 AM
ok, so i have printed out my lovely elenore pattern, and come to realise that it significantly larger in sise than the original poppet pattern. I had intended to make something of a hybrid, using the elenore body and mainly poppet limbs, in the sise of my existing poppets, it being about as big as i'd want anything that has to live in my college room with me. Does anyone know how much I would need to shrink it down to match the original poppet pattern?

6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / MLP paint and glue removal on: May 21, 2008 07:31:15 AM
Iv'e done my research, and I know exactly what I DO need in order to get the paint and the hair glue off of a my little pony, the problem is none of it is available to me. So my question is this: I did successfully find some acetone- bottle of pure acetone- a couple of towns over, but would that hurt my pony vinyl? Does anyone know? Help would be greatly appreciated!
7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / colour choices... on: October 11, 2007 04:54:39 AM
I plan to make my dearest a sock monkey and miniaturise a pirate coat I'm making him at the moment (or will be once the fabric comes in) for the monkey to wear.
The monkey in question will be a sort of portrait of the man, but will probably also double as the monkey on his shoulder when he dresses up pirate style.
Went down to my local sock shop and had a look around, and am now tossing up some brown socks for monkey-ness or some black/white or red/white striped socks for pirate-ness. The brown socks are stripes of different browns, and come in a lighter and darker variety, so I was thinking of making a corresponding wench monkey in a duplicate of my usual outfit, but I'm so indecisive about the colour! I mean it's just as easy to use the non brown for a similar effect!
Argh! I need a decisive person to choose for me! Help!
