Here he stands - all 34 inches of him!
Costuming all finished!
Details, like scissors, odd socks, hat pin, ribbons and reels! Not a bad profile either, considering I didn't like his face at first and didn't know how it would go.
The jacket took longer to make than the hat, believe it or not! I broke all the sewing rules with this one and felt I had almost moved into abstract art!
Because he is so tall, he is also quite heavy, so it will be interesting to see how it goes when he is strung and working!
What do you think?
I recieved my complimentary copy of SDA Magazine,today, with my Sole Mates pattern beautifully done , inside! Very exciting! I was blown away by the heading! Thank you Soft Dolls & Animals Magazine!
You may recall my original doll?
This pic is a test doll, made by Jane Boyd, who said she enjoyed making it - even though she was under pressure to do other major things in her life at the time! I appreciated her taking the time to do this for me and to do it so well!
Even Ma & Pa are happy about this!

I found a leftover head and bust from my Marie Antoinette doll Busts, so though it would work ok for a marionette. Then I was commissioned to make Batgirl! So I began.
All put together/
She looks like a BJD! Well almost!
Ready to make the boots. Measuring the card for pointy toe.
Stiletto's of course!
The foot is weighted with garnet grains. Foot is glued on to the sole.
Fabric fitted to the shoe was not long enough, so a design feature on the toe!
Lashes put on after the mask is in place prevents wear and tear. The mask is made from soft leather and stitched to shape the head. Quite pleased with it.
All ready for the strings now!
Hmmmm! Next step now!
Ready to take on the world!
