my etsy pattern shop.
To celebrate I'm having a little sale on all the doll patterns in my shop. 20% off till the end of January 2018.
I did get a bit bored of doing superheros in black suits after the Marvel lot, so I wanted to add more colour with these. I've kept most of the dolls in their retro costumes but some I've combined some with a more modern style. As they've had many different costumes over the year, I've mixed things up and made these a bit more fun.
I picked this outfit for Batgirl because the colours are really bright and look great together. I think she looks so adorable.
The main problem I had was his mask. In most pictures there are no visible eyes, as its black on black. I did think about doing a hood that covers the eye but it looked a bit spooky and didn't really look like Batman. In the end I changed my original mask pattern to give it more definition and a bit of a beak on the nose.I'm very happy with how he looks now, very cute, very Batman.
Half the reason I wanted to add her was I just knew how much fun it would be to make that hair. It was, it was so much fun. Everyone is gonna love making this doll, I promise.
I may at some point do a more traditional costumed version of this doll but for now I'm very happy with her as she is.
I love him, He is perfect and adorable. I just know this pattern will be a big hit. Go on you know you want to make him too.
That cane is just a paper clip bended and wrapped with yarn, but doesn't it look effective. (you don't want to know how long I searched round the house for wire before realizing a paperclip would work. I had a pot of them on my work table the whole time. Silly Liz)
It might look like doing boys hair like this, is a bit complicated but its really not. Believe me if it wasn't super easy and enjoyable to create, I would not have it on my patterns. I don't do faffy things.
That said, I have taken photos to create a tutorial to do the different types of hair on these dolls' I'll post it soon on here.
I am so happy with this set now it finished. I know its going to be very popular.
I'll defiantly be doing more DC doll sets, Justice League and maybe Suicide Squad, ooh and I've got to make Supergirl.
Thats all for today. I've got crocheting to do and I'm so excited about my next project I've got up early to get on with it.
If you want a hint...
Lots of love
