Sailor Jupiter, from Sailor Moon. I made her a few stitches taller than the other scours so she’d be the right proportions. Her hair is tied with a regular old bow because I couldn’t come up with something I liked that matched her real hairband.
Sailor Venus from Sailor Moon. The orange yarn in her outfit is actually the only yarn in the whole set that isn’t Vanna’s Choice — it’s some random acrylic from a bag of scraps I got at a yarn swap.
Sailor Mercury from Sailor Moon. She uses the same blue yarn that is in parts of Sailor Moon’s costume so I was constantly mixing up their limbs until I got them assembled. The skirts in this set are all knit, but everything else is crocheted.
To anyone who’s interested: my commissions are still open for now, but I’m going to have to shut them down for a while starting at the end of this month. I’m going to be doing a lot of traveling in June and I want to make sure I have all of May to get the dolls constructed and in the mail before I go. So if you’re considering a commission from me, now may be the best chance for a while.
Here’s my commissions info. Feel free to drop me an Ask or shoot me an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions.
Sailor Mars, from Sailor Moon. I did all 5 of the main scouts, and I’m gonna post them over the next few days.
I’m REALLY pleased with how the body proportions turned out in this set. I took a long time trying to get the legs and the skirts and the waists and the busts all to be the right shape, and I think it really paid off. And since the scouts wear basically the same outfits with small tweaks, any work I did on one usually translated well to the others.
Group pic of the Parks and Rec dolls. Sorry there’s no April or Andy, but I got busy with way too many other works in progress. But you can commission them if you like! Or Chris or Anne or Donna or Jerry…
Leslie Knope from Parks and Rec. My wife keeps giving me a hard time because the anatomy isn’t always as good on my female dolls as they are on the male dolls, but I think this one turned out pretty good! Her suit is basically Tom’s but with tweaks to the waist and hips.
Ron Swanson from Parks and Rec. His shirt is knit, the rest is crocheted. Look at his tiny little mustache!
Tom Haverford from Parks and Rec. The picture doesn’t do him enough justice, this doll is so frickin adorable. Up until now I’ve sort of been winging it every time I had to dress a doll in a suit, but I think with this doll I finally have a consistent pattern I’m happy with.
