Aaaack! That picture is too close! Could you pull back a bit? I feel as though I'm looking through someone else's glasses!

I was just going to say what craftewoman said. Another shot with everything in the proportions of a poppet.

Thanks for all your lovely comments.! haha

The dress is exactly what I'd want if I had enough of that fabric. It's amazing. haha. I don't know if it would suit me, but I love it so much.

I was going for the rock star look more than cruella de'ville, it's growing on me. Smiley I need to work out a way to fix her hair style a little though. I think that the placement of the hair weft's could have been better. I couldn't find a tutorial on that, But it looks fine.


I hadn't realised I'd put her eyes alot higher up than the other poppets. Thanks for pointing that out. I think it gives her more of a daydreamer style impression, It's the kind of personality I was getting from her while she was being put together.

Interesting. Smiley

I love poppets I think I'm addicted.

goldfishpollywog, hard to tell from that extreme closeup, but from what I can see, I would give it a big thumbs up!  Brown and green are my fave colours, especially together (which is why my first poppet was done in those colours!).

Oooops!  Sorry, clicked the wrong photo.  I was distracted by nudist preschooler. Embarrassed

Lets try that again.  I know it is blurry, but maybe with your imaginations, you can pretend it isn't?

That's the fabric I used for my dragon!  I just picked up the same print in brown, but I don't know how I'm going to use it yet. I love how you did the eyes.  Those colors will work well together.

ambiguous.miss she is beautiful!!

goldfishpollywog I really like that combo, I can't wait to see it all put together Smiley

So inspired by the awesome wonderwoman poppet I decided to do a superman one for my nephew (who is in the hospital today having heart surgery)  I thouht it would make a cute gift for when he came home.  He wont play with it, he's only 2 months old LOL but my brother was a superman freak when he was a kid so he'll appreciate it.

I decided I wanted the human hands for this one with the rest of the regular poppet body.  Man on man those hands are tricky! LOL  It took me 2 tries and they still aren't perfect but they don't look too bad.  I'm gonna have to practice more though.

I have a question for you all though.  What do you think I should do for his hair?  I don't think regular wefted hair will give me the look I need.  Any ideas?

And one more question for all of you who've done poppets with very straight hair.  I bought yard that looked like it would be straight but after unrolling it I realized it wasn't it was wavy from being rolled up.  So how do you get the hair so straight?  Is it a special kind of yarn or do you do something to it to make it so straigt?

TIA Smiley
