After seeing Fantastic Beasts recently, I've shifted into full-on Harry Potter mode again. My favourite character is Snape, so when I decided to play around and tweak some of my usual doll patterns, he was the perfect subject.

I always flop back and forth over what style appeals to me the most; super chibified or stylized realism. So... I did what I love to do; refuse to make a decision and craft both styles instead, because clearly two Snapes are better than one!~ Wink

This is Snape version 1:
He's 13inches, made of suedecloth and various fabrics (whatever had the right feel and draping properties in my stash cupboard). Faux fur for the hair and hand-painted eyes..



Oh, and a basic armature in his arms to allow him to be gently posed..


Annndd.. Snape version 2:
Super chibi! He's 13.5 inches, made of suedecloth and a variety of fleece fabrics. Faux fur hair -- which made me have to completely rework my head pattern because the bigger the head, the shorter the pile of the fur appears. I also gave him oversized individual fingers to go with the oversized feet and head. His eyes are needle felted; I usually do a darker colour of their eyes around the outside, but being black it kind of voided that idea..




Sorry about the photos -- black on black on black is surprisingly difficult to photograph. Tongue

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Your Snapes are spot on. The perma-scowl on the first is very Snape like, and the super chibi version is adorable!

They're both awesome; I can't pick which I like better.  The super chibi one is even kind of spooky looking in my opinion.

And I agree: photographing black-on-black things can be super tough.
