191  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Re: Hindu Gods & Goddesses (image heavy) on: May 03, 2008 01:16:53 PM
Those are SO fabulous!  I want to make some!  Did you make up the pattern or is it something that is available somewhere? 

 The patterns I used for the bodies are Runo's "Nekomimi" doll (available here for free! - http://dollmaker.nunodoll.com/nekomimi/), but with some changes, especially to the face - I just made a nose separately and stuck it on. For the clothing, I decided to just wing it, since I had no idea what I was doing.  Grin

  Krishna's pants I affixed at the waistline and then ruffled the fabric, attaching the folds together to get the enhanced effect of a dhoti. The saris for Saraswati and Sita I made with just a long strip of cloth and tied them the way a sari would (generally) be tied (folds in the skirts made the same way Krishna's pants are, just gluing where they puddled together). The undershirts I made using the body & arms patterns (there's a dress pattern that comes along with the original Nekomimi doll, that might be of some help. It didn't occur to me to use it).

   The jewelry are chains & beads I found at the dollar store, using crafting pliers to pry them open & closed. The crowns are scrapbook decals (another dollar store find), and the peacock feathers I found at Michael's.

these are way cool Smiley

i love that you did the four arms, and i bet it was a challenge... it's hard enough to get 2 the same sometimes  Wink

and, when i saw the thumbnail i thought "cool!  somebody made krishna!"

perfect shade of blue for his skin Smiley  also, i love their hair... is it yarn or special doll hair or what?

I was lucky, I found an old bedsheet that was the perfect shade of blue!

And the hair is yarn, a really thick kind (I've lost the label for it by now, but I did find it in WalMart). It's attached in mostly separate strands to the entire back of the head.

My Hinduism class had the option of making a creative project instead of writing a midterm, so...I jumped all over that one. I made Krishna, Sita, and Saraswati. They went over pretty well, and Saraswati lives with my professor now. My second, third and fourth attempts at doll-making, so I'm pretty pleased with them.


Krishna, Saraswati and Sita


four arms! A challenge.




Some separates:
Saraswati


The veena is detachable! It was made with wooden sticks, a napkin ring and glass beads.



Sita:


My first adventures with broadcloth. Undecided

Krishna:

His nose is SO HIGH. Haha.


Everything on him means something so I couldn't leave anything out. Except his flute, which I forgot to include in the pictures. Woops!



Hanging out with Sita and....Tuxedo Mask?  Cheesy
His crown broke, but has since been fixed.

LOL sweet nostalgia! I was so excited when I saw this thread title! Grin You did a great job with him. I love his cape! He is wonderful. I expect your friend will be thrilled! Smiley Great work!

Thanks!  Grin
It brought back some childhood memories, for sure. Of Tuxie always off to the side somewhere, yelling things.
"You can do it, Sailor Moon!"
"Tuxedo Mask? You're right! I can do it!"

I made bubble paper like that yesterday! Yours looks great.
Did you get that from 'The Big-Ass Book of Crafts' by Mark Montano? Both those crafts are in there and I can't wait to start making my own envelopes.

you are too funny!!  "I regret nothing"  "Looks wonky...cause it it"  Good job!  Looks great!!  Fun to do I bet!  Did you paint the eyes on with acrylics?

 Why thank-you Cheesy
 Most of it was acrylic, I believe. I mixed the blues to get the hue as close as I could to the original character. Big shiny anime eyes were harder to render than I thought!

Oh! He's adorable. great job. I like that he's a little wonky. It gives him character. Is this your first doll?

  My fifth doll, but first time making a tuxedo!

My friend was waxing nostalgic about Tuxedo Mask, the character from Sailor Moon (her dream guy, haha). So for her birthday I made a Tuxedo Mask doll, since she was never satisfied with the official merchandise. It's mostly sewn, but I cheated in a few places with hot glue. I regret nothing. Cheesy





The eyes crack me up. They are HUGE.


A little ambiance. Or something.


His vest looks a little wonky from some angles. Mostly because it is.  Grin


Excuse the messy kitchen, it's in the process of being painted  Roll Eyes




I have to say, I do love his cape. It was an old pillowcase I found in a thrift store.


tout fini!


The pattern I used was Runo's "Nekomimi doll": http://dollmaker.nunodoll.com/nekomimi/  , albeit with some major changes.
