Hey everyone!  I know you're probably pretty tired of seeing these little guys, but I can't stop making them!  It's addicting.  Anyway, I just wanted to show you guys what we've been doing.

You can see his whip, his bag, the magic stones, the holy grail, and the little golden idol in this pic.  And of course his hat, which I thought was going to be really hard, but it turned out to be pretty easy.

My sister is making a tiny muslin shirt for him, but I couldn't wait for her to finish with it and I made a felt one instead.  I think muslin will look better, though.  The felt wasn't giving the open, flapping feeling that I want--although I do think what we ended up with is pretty cute.  My boyfriend actually made all of the sculpey pieces before I had even finished making Indy!

Okay, and here's more Star Wars:

Finally, Luke!

But wait!

His hand comes off!  He he, I thought that was so cool.  I pretty much giggled about it to myself for a whole day.  It's a magnet.  And of course, his awesome lightsaber is made, once again, by the boy.

And here's a custom order we did:

It's Boushh, the bounty hunter that Leia dresses up as when she goes to rescue Han from Jabba the Hutt.  Her helmet is removable too!  And more magnets (I love putting magnets in stuff): the thermal detonator can magnetically attach to her hand.  So cool!

She was pretty complicated, but I think she turned out great.

Let me know what you guys think!

Those are very cute and really well done. The magnet idea is great.

These are so awesome. The Star Wars ones are totally getting me in the mood for the big Star Wars exhibit in Philadelphia I'm going to see in two weeks. The details are awesome! and I love how Luke's arm detaches. What a wonderful touch.  Wink
