Supernatural Dolls-- Sam

The other three dolls in the commission with the Vieri doll were three dolls from the show Supernatural. I was actually really excited to do these. I'd just started watching the show lately, with the help of Netflix, so when I got the request, I started giggling like crazy.

I started with Sam, because I knew his hair would be the easiest to accomplish. I have a weird time with short hair. xD I started using a tassel method I found in a tutorial somewhere when I first started making dolls, an' I have to say, it's a lot easier.

I may fiddle around with his jacket, since I don't like how the shoulders look. I'm trying something else for Dean's, so that might work better.

Productive Days~

As addicting as Tumblr is, with my ACRP, it's not exactly useful for getting work done. So yesterday, I took a break. Nothing was going on, no one was on MSN to talk to, an' I had a commission to work on.

Instead I spent the time with my wonderful Ryu, watching stand-up comedy an' working on my Sam doll. It turns out stand-up is one of the few things I can watch an' crochet at the same time to, since I don't need to look up. I got pretty much a whole doll done yesterday!

So, I think that's what I'll do. Not only do I get to spend time with Ryu an' have some laughs, but I get productivity as a bonus!

After the weekend is over, of course.

Vieri de' Pazzi-- Assassin's Creed 2

This is Vieri. Vieri is from Assassin's Creed 2, an' he's a cranky, mean little thing. But I love him so. He's possibly my favourite character from the game, an' I've been making little dolls of him for awhile now. xD A friend of mine commissioned me for a larger doll of him, an' this was the result.

He would not cooperate though. oAo His tunic stitching wanted to wind all over the place. His arms wanted to be a different colour than they needed to be. His legs wanted to be sewn up before they could get stuffed. Most of all, his little capelet, which I had made at least twice by this point, was not turning out right for some reason. First it was too small. Then I made it larger, but it got miscounted in stitches. Then it was too small AGAIN. In the end, it was triple it's original size, an' wound up too big. But I made it fit.

Anyway...the order also included three Supernatural dolls, which I'm looking forward to trying!


Setting Up

So...I figured I'd start one of these blogs for my crafts an' such. Then promptly spent all night customizing everything. oAo There's a lot here!

Anyway...I think I've got the layout how I like...now to go friend the people I was already watching. xD After that, I'll probably get to posting some pictures or projects or something. I just finished a commission doll that I'm quite proud of. He gave me a lot of trouble.
