1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / doll crafting quesiton on: November 17, 2011 11:06:02 PM
being the great mult-tasker that I am I've decided to make another plushie.  I'm almost done with a Halo Reach Kat "doll."  She'll be 18-20 inches tall once I sew her head/helmet on lol.  I used black duck cloth  to make her body, lame' for her mechanical arm, and felt for her armor and it's turned out pretty good.  But I was just wondering if maybe there was a better material for making bodies.  My next project is Bleez from Green Lantern comics and she has a pale blue/aqua skin so I don't know if they make duck in that color so I again I'm looking for possibly a better material.  Here's a link to what Bleez looks like in case anyone was wondering http://www.comicvine.com/bleez/29-58255/all-images/108-218598/atrocitus_bleez_5/105-2077068/.  I'm open to suggestions on any of it really lol.  I was thinking about some kind of wire thing for her bone wings...but idk if that is even do-able in stuffed "dolls."  I know I won't be using felt for her costume, b/c her costume is too smooth and felt is just...not lol.  Anyway...thanks for any help you can provide  Cool

here's a pic of Kat just in case lol http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-5Vo4bDRt5Kk/TWZ_x4rsBlI/AAAAAAAAH3U/35sNzh2eNLI/s1600/HaloReach_KAT_3.jpg
