Hey everyone! Long time no see. After a long break from crochet, I made this doll which I think took longer than all of my other projects combined!  Cheesy

So here's a cute chibi version of Thrall from World of Warcraft.

I crocheted the body from sport weight yarn. Some of the costume parts I crocheted from fine thread, other parts are hand-sewn from fabric, felt, or leather. The eyes are embroidery.The beard and eyebrows are made from sport weight acrylic yarn, which I brushed out and straightened with an iron before sewing it on as wefts. The long hair was made from the same yarn. I split the plies and ironed it straight. After styling the hair, I brushed out the last inch or so to feather it. I like the way the long hair looks, but it's quite delicate and has the tendency to shed fibers when handled. It's also clingy and hard to style in general. This was okay for my purposes, since it's a decorative doll, not a plaything. The final doll stands about 28 cm tall (11 inches).

Anyway, without much further ado, here he is!

The outfit is cool/intricate, but, I have to admit I prefer how he looks in just the loincloth and sandals (that hair is just begging to blow free in the wind).  Amazing job!
