Hey,

So I'm super proud of this figurine I did for a swap. Wanted to share it in its rightful home, in the poly clay section.

This is Rory Gilmore from Gilmore Girls, specifically from the "You Jump, I Jump Jack" episode, where she and Logan jump off the scaffolding holding umbrellas in formal wear. If you haven't seen the scene, look at this; go to youtube and put this code in the search bar: BU5LUrKetpM

She is about 6" tall; here she is from the front:


Her dress is tissue paper and ribbon. And the side:


Her hair is doll hair, and her umbrella was a drink umbrella. From the back:


I'd love to hear your comments, and if you like her, please click "this rocks"!

Thanks for the compliments! Seriously recommend checking out the youtube video that I mentioned in the first post (with the pictures); I'm quite proud of how similar to the actual character my girl looks.

Thanks again!

The only thing I couldn't quite copy from the actual scene was the embroidery on her dress. I wanted to work with tissue paper, because it reminded me of clothes pin dolls I used to make as a kid, but I couldn't find any flower appliques or anything small enough to glue onto the dress. Anyway, I improvised with those tiny silver beads you can get at the craft store that don't even have holes in them. I think the effect is good, and still gets the point across.

Thought I'd mention it, as there are bound to be some diehard detail-lovers who'll notice that in the show, her dress has flowers, not beads. Smiley

The hair: as I was doing this on the cheap, I actually just cut some hair off of a Bratz doll and glued it onto the head. I thought it would look cheap and obvious, but because she's sorta "falling" through the air, it actually works out! I also was really, really careful about placement.
