I'm participating in the Plethora of Poppets swap over at Craftster (I know, seems like I never craft except for swaps lately, eh? Not true though, I just never finish crafts that aren't for swaps lately, haha) but I had a bit of a hiccup...I've never made a poppet before!

My other hiccup was that my beloved Brother sewing machine up and bit the big one (*tear*) so I had to quick run out to the Goodwill and buy a temporary replacement. It's an ancient Brother Odyssey (not so much brand loyalty as this was the machine I found!) and it weighs roughly 8,000 pounds, but he works wonderfully so far and I quite like him. I named him Jerome, because I've had that song stuck in my head lately and it just seemed to fit him anyway.

Under the cut is a pic of Jerome, and several of the first project I've made on him- my very first poppet! She's as-yet-unnamed and is unfinished, and will remain so until I finish my swap poppet. I just wanted to get some practice in, and I figured I got as far as I need to to figure out how to do the best job I can on the "real" one. :)

Jerome! I have no idea how old he is, and I can't find any info on the machine on Google. Try looking for "Brother Odyssey", I dare you to find anything not pertaining to a certain epic poem. :P Doesn't matter how many other terms I add, I can't find squat. Oh well.

PUBES! Mua ha ha haaa! She's got a needle-sculpted vulva, and I'm sorry, I just hate bald cooches. It's a personal distaste. Those long bits are her hair, her bush is in fact quite nicely trimmed. I don't think I've ever seen a poppet with a pubic forest, so either I'm awesome or a sick puppy (I'm good with whichever, ha).

Handpainted (by me, of course) acrylic eyes.

Here you can see the unfinished wig cap I crocheted for her. She'll get the rest of her hair (and nipples!) once I finish the swap poppet. :)



So, what do you think? I'm not huge on my crappy needle-sculpted boobs, but for some reason I decided not to do the boobie poppet pattern mod for her, and of course immediately regretted this decision once I had her stuffed. I had to do something for her! ;)
