I have a push on to get all my doll requests finished before I begin my summer job, so here's the latest: Captain Jack Harkness, from Doctor Who and Torchwood. Played by the lovely John Barrowman (a sane man's Tom Cruise).

Cpt. Jack:

Doll Jack:

The face was probably the most challenging. It still needs some tweaking here and there. It's not so noticeable here but I did sew a little cleft in his chin.

The suspenders, however, I will never stop loving. They're made out of stretchy elastic straps.

And the first time I've made removable clothing, if only his trench.  Grin

Roses for Ianto?   Kiss


girlfriend has highliiiiiights.
His hair was a little too dark so I took a toothpick and streaked some gold paint through, then rubbed it off with cloth (some paint stays but it's less obvious that I raked paint through his hair  Cheesy )

Add Jack to the stockpile of dolls I've yet to get out to people. Sita, two Krishnas and Colin Meloy from the Decemberists.

Jack, really now.
(if you don't watch the show, Jack's from the 51st century where sex and gender are irrelevant, and as a result he will sleep with anything - men, women, humans, aliens...he's a very well-traveled man).

That's better.

 Thank-You!  Cheesy

 Her hair is made from a thick black yarn (I'm kicking myself for throwing out the label, but I did find it at Wal*Mart), attached in single strands from a hairline located in the middle of the head (I started at the black of the head and worked forward, gluing them with hot glue). The effect is mostly due to the yarn, because it doubles so well as hair.

 The noses are made from a frame of wooden skewers (cut off from longer shish kabob skewers, or toothpicks could work too if you added more for desired thickness) - I made an L-shape two skewers wide, then added one to the 'back' of the nose, so that it'd have some support to stick to the face (making a triangle shape). If I need a certain shape of nose I just bulk it up with hot glue before covering the frame in fabric, then sticking it to the face.
  ...maybe it'll make more sense in (quickly, badly scrawled) picture form:

Oh that is just adorable.  He's even got the suspenders and everything.

How pathetic am I?!

I'm SO jealous of a doll! I've been dying to make a coat like Capt. Jack's since I first watched 'The Empty Child.'

You did an amazing job!

He's so fricken cute!
