This is a doll of Integra from the manga/anime Hellsing. I made her for a swap.

Integra scrutinizes.

She's a ragdoll sort of doll, meaning that she isn't jointed or really posable since she has no armature or anything, but she is soft like a plushie. Her hands, however, do have some pipecleaners in the fingers so she can hold things. I drafted her as a more feminine version of my regular ragdoll pattern. I drafted the head as well, though it was basically a variation on the head from ghilie's poppet pattern. Her skin is alova and her features are painted/drawn on.


I made her glasses using some of the clear plastic that they make packages and boxes out of for kids toys and things like that. I cut them into little circles and punctured them with an upholstery needle and then threaded some wire in to connect them and make the little ear parts. They actually wrap around her ears so that they don't fall off.

As for her clothes, they are all removable. Her shoes are felt loafer sort of things, her suit is made of a linen that really looks like tweed or suiting of some kind. Her gloves are made of white knit jersey, and yes, they are removable, too!

Her jacket is double-breasted (though only the outside set of buttons has actual buttonholes, so I guess it's sort of mock double-breasted). Her blouse is made of some shiny shirting I had lying around and her tie is just a bit of hemmed broadcloth, though I did make the little wrap with the cross with a hook and eye closure in the back so that it would be the right shape and not too hard to take off.

From the back.

Just some of her outerwear Smiley

Le gasp! In her shirtsleeves!

I even put the little crease down the front of her pant legs, though you can only sort of see it in this picture

Her hair I did by using one of those plastic net bag thingies that are sometimes around candy or cheese and I latch-hooked an enormous amount of very light blonde yarn onto it and sewed it down on her head. She looked at me disapprovingly the entire time, but hey, now she has hair. I painted her eyes and used fabric marker for her mouth. Her eyebrows are light so I just penciled them on, haha.

I just like that picture.

Whae-hey, your attention to detail is phenominal! The suit looks fantastic, and I'm just wowed by the removeable gloves. I envy your partner!  Grin
