I like the idea, but did you take into account the ceiling lamp shade may get hot? Dripping Crayolas then?

@Stillatthetop: I didn't say he NEEDED a change. I just explained why people may see him as sad and how to alter that. I did not want anybody to see that a a command.

Sad. It's the upper eyelids, giving the impression of sagging eye corners. That reads as "sad". Furthermore, you gave him two highlights in the eyes, both of them looking rather oval than round. That, too, translates as "sad" in human eyes (in fact, it translates to wet eyes like in "swimming in tears").
But he's cute nevertheless, but if you want him to get rid of that sad look, you'll have to change these.

Just a quick example: get rid of one highlight per eye, make highlights rounded, get rid of "eyelids" and accentuation:

It looks beautiful. But, just to achieve perfection, you should either widen it a bit at your hips OR shorten the back. See last picture? The fabric gets folds because it rests on your lower hip instead of gliding further down.
(Since the dress doesn't look to tight at the hips I'd shorten the back. Just take in that fold.)

It was, indeed. The weather was just fine enough to train Quidditch outside. When everybody got thirsty, I started the potions class. Of course I did Snape honor - I took so many house points away from the kids, I bet they won't be back in black numbers until they are oldngrey. >;> And they just loved being told off by "Snape". We crafted our own wands of polymer clay wrapped around pencils. And we had a wonderful "Nagini"-Snack consisting of a gherkin, cut in rounds, and between each round I put a "pumpernickel" (special bread from germany, made exclusively of rhye, baked for about a day - you can get it readymade, don't worry) with fresh cottage cheese on top.

It made me laugh out loud! (But my hubbie doesn't get it. Poor him).

Love it!

What, like a milk-maid, or like, just "maid" as in young, unmarried girl? Cuz I immediately thought milkmaid.
ARGH! Most of these cheap dirndl costumes really hurt my german eyes... *shudders* I'd go for this one:http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_TgZU5tQSskI/TELxqSSqrOI/AAAAAAAAA_4/Dsmv2NL6gSE/s1600/Maidservant:door.jpg

Like in this rhyme?
White blouse, long skirt made of rectangle twice her cirumference (at least), vest without sleeves (but with makeshift-lacing, just pin a cord with safety needles to the front), and, most important, little white bonnet.

It looks great. But forgive my asking, since I'm german I have no clue about this "Homecoming". I sure can translate it, but what's its meaning?

Hm, no, I'd think there are gussets set into the seams. Look at this picture, there you can see it better:
