I like the two color duo on hair too. You have to be careful though, not to make them even amounts, otherwise it looks funny. The easy peasy dress shouldn't be too complicated to fix. The other clothes I've drafted won't be so easy!
All of the bottoms will have to have the waist taken in a bit. The corset should still work. The peasant blouse will have to be enlarged. I'm not sure about anything else.
She's pretty Ghilie.
Babyangel, I'm looking forward to seeing that Geisha. Well, actually ever since MK said she was making one! Where's the Geisha?
hey, for that matter, where's MK?

Thought you might all get as much of a giggle out of this as I did...

I was at a party on the weekend and there was a girl there who I'd never seen before but there was something about her that was incredibly familiar. Throughout the party I was trying to work out what it was about her that had caught my attention, but I couldn't work it out. Then at about 4am in the morning when I was lying awake with my insomnia for company, it hit me- she looked like a poppet! Her face was a similar shape and she had long, thick hair. I think that's a sure sign I've been spending a little too much time thinking about and looking at poppets! And it may also be a sure sign that I'm a little weird. Cheesy

lmao, dont worry. Im sure your not the only one. I went clothes shopping - Autumn means new warmer clothers - and I kept picking up things and thinking that would look really good on a poppet or that would make a really nice poppet  Roll Eyes I didnt manage to buy anything in the end lol


glitter it, no seriously, just add glue and glitter, no one will notice

Inez - lovely choices. Those eyelashes are something else. Did they cost a lot?
I'm having trouble finding some I can afford.

Thanks for all the praise *blush*
Yeah, I thought the disembodied eyes were creepy, but the pics of her didn't show her lashes off all that well. I just bought the eyelashes in the make-up dept of Meijer ($3 Amer.)...just black, no glue included. I laid them across the eyes, cut off the excess, then laid the excess over the first layer....I used the whole pkg on her (I had to copy the gorgeous steampunk poppet!).
She still needs hair, a name and some clothes...right now, she's borrowing Miss Revlon's fleece dress and she's swimming in it (Miss Revlon is my 18" antique dolly).

Very pretty! I'm really wanting to make another poppet, must finish swap stuff first. ^-^

Those are some fantastic eyelashes! I wish mine looked like that. Oh, my poppets do too ^-~


I'm bringing sexy back, I think I dropped it somewhere between the donut shop and the Cheesecake Factory.
