I made this poppet for katara in the Poppet / Amigurumi Swap, and wanted to keep her for myself! She's definitely my favorite poppet I've made.




I handpainted her eyes, and her ears are poseable. Unfortunately the lashes I used started to fall apart, so I hope they were still intact when she made it to katara!


This shows her dress(es) better.


Her underdress doubles as a nightgown. She's also got lacy bloomers under there  Cheesy


I used this tutorial: http://www.cdhm.org/tutorials/making-fairy-wings.html to make her wings. It took me about 5 tries, until I realized that regular metal wire was never going to stay glued properly.  I planned to make them larger, but the fantasy film is really narrow. I was really worried about shipping the wings, and decided to make them removeable so I could wrap them up separately. They attach by magnets - the outside piece is covered with the skin fabric, and the wings are glued on. The inside piece is glued inside her back, so she looks completely normal when they're removed (well, there is a small lump).


I'm especially pleased with her cute little feet!  Cheesy
