I've been sewing for Makie dolls again. Having accumulated some nice fabrics for my birthday, this is what I have come up with...

I follow an amazing artist online, called Brian Kesinger (http://www.bkartonline.com/) who a number of months back issued a challenge to cosplayers, to dress up as his steampunk girl character Victoria, who has a pet octopus.
I decided it would be more interesting to scale this down (especially since I had already made a suitable octopus from modifying http://knitty.com/ISSUEdf14/PATTopus.php

The results are interesting - this took some time! Doll does not have human proportions or full movement and fabric sourcing can be tricky, but final result is fun!

I have a number of the customisable dolls from https://mymakie.com/ - I found they were changing them (non-3d print bodies, stopping the plain white ones) so grabbed more while I could. I thought it might be fun to create a version of the cartoon character Nemi (http://www.comicvine.com/nemi/4005-23383/) as a costumed doll - here's a few pics (I do need to give her some make-up yet to make her a bit more recognisable).

Nemi! )

I've been having a lot of fun over the last year designing then dressing little custom-made dollies from https://mymakie.com/

Recently I decided to find out if some of my handspun yarns could be used for some wig-making experimentation and found it to work quite well :)

The pixie boots are so great, I pondered some pixie spring-inspired shoes!

I found http://www.fairysteps.co.uk/ a while back - made-to-measure footwear (though they have now closed the custom order list and will sell shop items only for the forseeable future, can't blame them!)
Ordered some pixie boots. Squee!!

We played for nearly 2 hours yesterday at a birthday party - and there was dancing, fun, cake, tasty cheese (and all the biting mozzies you could possibly want ;) )

We played at this event this year in Woking Park (as the bandstand in the town centre has been moved there due to redevelopment so couldn't be there again this year).

We had a lovely day for it - thanks [livejournal.com profile] blue_sun_scribe for the pics of us!
