Harlot – Hair

HARLOT – HAIR AND DRESS BEGINNING

I glued the hair with fabric glue, begun to wonder if I should have padded under it to give it more body.

And if I cut it too short. 

Le sigh. 

Fabric glue is really noxious. The cut on my finger would throb any time it got near the stuff.

Very bizarre.

Anyway I’ve begun to sew her dress. Its patchwork with the same black thread, however I have realized that this thread has been rubbing dye onto the material of her body. This is most distressing as I dont believe I can get it out. I will have to come up with a different material for the ‘straps’  around her torso. 

The materials for her dress are different pieces of several different fabrics. From Ties to CareBears fabric (the pink ones XD) to old Xmas socks.

Super cool

I’m super sleepy right now. 

Harlot – Body

HARLOT – BODY

This is Harlots body! Yay.

Took me a few tries to get the shape I wanted. And I personally think the legs are too close together, I may unstitch and redo that part…. although I’d have to do it before putting the head on…Damn and I just realized I’ve already put the pellets in…

In stuffing them I am using a mix of pellets and standard plushie flush. The pellets are to give them a bit more weight, allowing them to sit up instead of flop over.
Thats the hope anyway.

LittleDead – The start of the project

So as my home side project I’ve been working on doll designs.
For two reasons mainly, I’ve been wanting to do my own dolls for three years, and I have found a project that mixes all of my talents together.
What it comes down to is a series of 7 plush dolls, each based off a different idea and character. They each have a house and all live in the same environment, which is a kind of creepy twilight zone.
I don’t know if I’ll ever get a space to present the full piece in, its a HUGE installation. My preliminary sketches will be up later this week as well as pictures of the doll designs.
The image attached is a vector image I created based on the characters heads. I have a 7th but I have yet to decide on the design.

Anyway. VoodooRagDoll AHOY!
