Lil!Merlin - part 1....  
So I've been busy on the craft thing again. In fact, this has been an ongoing project pretty much for months. I bring you the first in a series of lil!Merlin.

Of course I started with my girl...





I started with a simple outfit of hers - the green dress from Fires of Idirsholas since the only embellishments were the green sparklies around the neckline and the belt. Added to it the green cloak too with its chain/clasp.

I want to have a go at some of her other outfits once I get more pictures. Fabric paints are the most handy thing ever I have found.

She will, of course, be coming with me to meet the full sized one this weekend :D

Next it's on to Gwen and the Morgause. After that I'll tackle the boys and their difficulty - how the hell you do boy hair!

Well the real one is rather cute so I thought this one should be too :)

N'aww, she's rather sweet. And I always love additional cloaks.

I see a few posts ago that you finished your Minion as well. As it happens I had been wondering if that had ever happened.

(You want difficult boy hair, try tackling characters like Leon and Lancelot. Gah!)

Cheers me dears.

Yeah I'm still wondering how to do boy hair. I'm thinking of using cross stitch thread because I suspect that wool will come out too think when cut short.

Oh, wow, so cool! ♥ Can't wait to see your version of Morgause!

(You should totally make more and sell them...)
doylefan22: Merlin - Morgana gleedoylefan22 on April 14th, 2011 12:48 pm (UTC)
Morgause is being made right now. Just faffing around with her dress.

I would let people buy them but I'd have no idea what to charge. The materials are cheap it's more the time they take than anything!

Hurrah!

Hmm...well, shipping, obv, especially if it's to overseas. Depends how long it takes to make them, I suppose. If it took like five minutes, I wouldn't think much more than the cost of the materials, if it takes hours or days, the multiply the cost accordingly? I'm not in the least creative, so I wouldn't know, really!

I have a f-lister who adores Morgana/Morgause, so if you ever do plan to sell them, I'd love to sign up for a pair! (and depending how expensive they are, for myself as well, lol)

I adore that icon of yours, btw, I always find myself entranced by how adorable she is!

Awwww,adorable! Love the little cloak!

Thanks!

I couldn't make her without a cloak. :)

D'awwwww! I love the cloak. =D

There is a lot of love for the cloak it seems.

Thanks. :)

*edited for 'she's so fluffy etc etc etc'

OMG YOU HAVE TO TAKE PICTURES OF KATIE WITH HER!!!

A guy I work with is going to Kapow con and he doesn't watch Merlin. HE FAILS SO HARD!!! I wish I was going *pouts*

My request for Morgause is still there :P

Picture was indeed taken :)

And Morgause is in construction right now. Just working on her epic dress of awesome.

Also, gif love!
Kat: Merlinlittleyuzu on April 8th, 2011 02:38 pm (UTC)
So sweet! You definitely need to get a picture of Katie with your doll. That would be so awesome! Would you let her keep it if she asked? I have a hard time parting with my creations, but if someone like her wanted one, I'd totally give it up! ;)

Boy hair is tricky to make. I struggled with how to make Merlin's hair at first, but I ended up using a piece of acrylic felt and 'stretching' it around his head, then hand-sewing it into place. Or you can always try yarn like you did for Morgana!
doylefan22: Merlin - Morgana gleedoylefan22 on April 14th, 2011 12:52 pm (UTC)
Katie loved the doll. She squeed an awful lot :D

Yeah I think I'm going to try cross stitch head for the boys hair. Or at least fine, cotton based wool. Otherwise it's going to end up too fluffy when cut short.

Very cute!
doylefan22: Merlin - Morgana gleedoylefan22 on April 14th, 2011 12:53 pm (UTC)
Thanks :)
keeping it vaguely imaginary...: Damn You Barrowman!!! // miss_jaffacake__kali__ on April 8th, 2011 07:32 pm (UTC)
Will you be doing Arthur on a non-armour day?
doylefan22: Merlin - Morgana gleedoylefan22 on April 14th, 2011 12:54 pm (UTC)
Oh no I have to do Arthur in his armour and tabard. :D

Although I'm think that chainmail would actually be very easy since crochet rather looks like chainmail.

Aw, she's adorable!

nawwww it's so squishable!

!Minimorgana would totally be stolen away by a !minitesla.
doylefan22: Merlin - Morgana gleedoylefan22 on April 14th, 2011 12:55 pm (UTC)
She would!

Although I need to practice on some other boy doll's hair before I make mini!tesla - don't want to ruin his most important feature!
jchantillyjchantilly on April 10th, 2011 02:04 pm (UTC)
That is too adorable! Also, i like your Morgana icon :)
doylefan22: Merlin - Morgana gleedoylefan22 on April 14th, 2011 12:55 pm (UTC)
Thanks! :)

And this is my favourite icon. Such a cute picture.
