These are all really good! And look so much like their models. That last one is adorable!

Can I ask what pattern you used for these dolls?

Thank you! I made my own patterns, the head is similar to the poppet pattern Smiley

These are great; it's so fun to see the actual people with their "mini-me" partners!  Cheesy

I love when people send me those pictures with their dolls!  Cheesy Cheesy

I would like to show you my work of this last Christmas, I had some orders to turn people into dolls. I really like this kind of dolls, they are pretty difficult sometimes though.
This first doll was the easiest one, lucky she was only wearing the green dress and I found a similar fabric. I really like her face and hair.

This guy is a guitarist of my island (I'm from Canary Islands, Spain). I found a miniature guitar just like his favourite one, so he flipped out when he saw the doll. He is wearing the clothes of his last show, you can see a picture of him playing guitar  Smiley (that one is a different guitar)

I made this doll actually on last summer, but never show it to you. His girlfriend wanted to surprise him with a Walking Dead inspired version of himself. That's why he is wearing a katana sword and leather gloves. Unfortunetly, he cut off his hair one week before his birthday  Angry haha! but he loved the doll anyway, and took that picture with the doll. I love that they both are wearing the same clothes  Cheesy Cheesy

I accidently delete the photos of this girl, but I show you the doll anyway because she is so cute! I think I need a bear hat like that one  Cheesy  This doll is still on its way to his destination, but I hope she loves it  Smiley

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Cheesy

Cartoon Lydia! You made her as a doll and movie her too and Miss Argentina oh my goodness! You have filled me with much fan glee! Cheesy

I tried one time to make a plush cartoon version Beetlejuice and now I want to try again. If only I could find my fabrics...

In any case though, you are amazing and I am so happy right now that these exist!

I also want to make a Beetlejuice doll! I made a felt brooch once but it was awful  Cheesy Cheesy
So glad you like my dolls!  Wink

"If I knew then, what I know now, I wouldn't have had my little accident."

While she didn't get much air time, she always struck a cord with me--probably because she was so vibrantly colored.  It's a shame she never had a figure in the Kenner Beetlejuice toyline, although, given that's she's a suicide, I can understand why she wouldn't be a terribly appropriate play thing for children, if for no other reason than she'd bring up uncomfortable questions for their parents to answer.

Anyhoo, great fabric rendition of the character.  You should send Tim Burton some photos of your work, I bet he'd get a kick out of them!

I feel the same about her character, I was a kid the first time I saw her and I fell in love with her green skin and how fun she was, even when she was talking about suicide. Thank you so much for your words, I would freak out if Tim Burton see my dolls! Cheesy

Thanks everybody for your nice words!  Smiley Smiley
7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Miss Argentina (Beetlejuice) on: January 08, 2015 01:13:38 AM
After I made two dolls of Lydia, one of the main characters of the movie Beetlejuice, I made another character that only appears a few minutes in the movie, but she is unforgettable!
In the movie someone says that people who commit suicide become civil servants, and we see Miss Argentina working as the receptionist of the "Afterlife Office". I had so much fun doing this doll, I tried new things like sewing the cape with wire inside, so its neck can be fold the way we want. I love her hair and her green zombie skin  Cheesy
I hope you like her!

This is Miss Argentina in the movie Smiley

How clever to show off your sewing talents!  Both you and your doll, dressed in matching outfits, are lovely!

Do you get a lot of requests to make your dolls from people in their own costumes/outfits?  I am curious because I have been asked to replicate wedding dresses for dolls.  I think it is is too much work.

Yes, it is too much work and people don't usually want to pay for it. People use to ask me to do dolls of their relates or friends, but once I've made a budget for an especific doll, they refuse to pay for it.
They think it is so expensive, but it has lot of work, as you said. And I don't wanna think about a wedding dress, but it would be such a beautiful work to make.
I don't know where you live, but here in Spain the idea of customized dolls for gifts is not very popular, people keep thinking "dolls? Thats for kids!" So sad! Embarrassed

Two weeks ago, I had a stand in the Manga Festival in my island, and I wanted to make a special outfit. My stuff is always inspired by fantasy characters, so I  thought I would look nice in a witch dress  Cheesy
So I made a "mini me" for the Festival, to show everyone I can make a doll with the outfit you are wearing. I really love this doll, her dress was pretty easy to make, and so the felt hat. Hope you like her!  Cheesy

And this is me with my "Mini me"  Cheesy She is prettier than me, I forgot to make her glasses  Cheesy Cheesy
