181  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Captain Jack Harkness [Torchwood/Doctor Who] plush doll. on: May 18, 2008 10:39:09 AM
I have a push on to get all my doll requests finished before I begin my summer job, so here's the latest: Captain Jack Harkness, from Doctor Who and Torchwood. Played by the lovely John Barrowman (a sane man's Tom Cruise).

Cpt. Jack:

Doll Jack:

The face was probably the most challenging. It still needs some tweaking here and there. It's not so noticeable here but I did sew a little cleft in his chin.

The suspenders, however, I will never stop loving. They're made out of stretchy elastic straps.

And the first time I've made removable clothing, if only his trench.  Grin

Roses for Ianto?   Kiss


girlfriend has highliiiiiights.
His hair was a little too dark so I took a toothpick and streaked some gold paint through, then rubbed it off with cloth (some paint stays but it's less obvious that I raked paint through his hair  Cheesy )

Add Jack to the stockpile of dolls I've yet to get out to people. Sita, two Krishnas and Colin Meloy from the Decemberists.

Jack, really now.
(if you don't watch the show, Jack's from the 51st century where sex and gender are irrelevant, and as a result he will sleep with anything - men, women, humans, aliens...he's a very well-traveled man).

That's better.

I wouldn't fault someone for trying something new. If she's really changing up identities every so often, the crafty thing will pass. It may not, and she might discover a new skill - a skill that anyone can and should be able to explore. You may be the 'resident crafter', but I'm better there's lots of people at your school who craft at home, or outside of school. I wouldn't take it too seriously.

 I know it can be annoying, but it's not like she's about to surpass you in skill or talent. If anything your stuff will hold up better in comparison. Bugging you in class is solved by giving her internet/book resources and gettin' on over it.

I don't know this band but the resemblance is so accurate. I LOVE his hair.

 At the time I wasn't familiar either, so I'm glad the doll looks like he's supposed to! I was worried his manly, manly jawline wouldn't come out right  Grin

Someone asked me to make them a doll of Colin Meloy, from the band The Decemberists. Specifically, from the video '16 Military Wives' (see it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Mbhd4LGR-g)

 So! I gave it a shot.

 Here's what he actually looks like:

 And what I came up with:

 I think I've fixed that wonky eye already. The hair cracks me up, though. The emo slice was easy to render in yarn. Cheesy

The glasses are huge! haha. I used a wire frame, covered that in paper mache and then spray-painted them black. It occurs to me now I can get the same effect by wrapping them in hockey tape.

I actually TIED the little tie. Being a girl who doesn't wear them, I so rarely get to display my tie-tying abilities.

He took his own Myspace photo  Lips sealed

Full outfit

tout fini!

I hope she likes it.  Wink
