Re: YPP's Greatest Hits! - Entry Thread (Deadline July 20th)
Here is my entry!

If I were to choose my prize I would want an Aqua Octopus !!
Otherwise if I get a runner's up prize, ships and furniture are both good things!

For my entry I chose the original U Giv Doll contest, linked here:
U Giv Doll

I actually made 2 dolls and then chose the better of the two.
I made a doll of the Shiny New OM Hera!

Hera is a stuffed cotton doll with a bendable wire armature, polymer clay head, hands, and feat, with a magnetic polymer clay familiar (accompanying magnet is in left shoulder). She is wearing custom made cotton clothes, with a real leather belt and a Jewel-encrusted polymer clay crown.







Materials used:

Wig Hair
Polymer Clay
Magnets
Various jewels and gems
Various glues
Cotton Fabric
Cotton muslin (fabric)
Polyester fiberfill (stuffing)
Plastic coated wire (armature)
Embroidery thread (used to stitch on doll parts)


I took several photos of the doll, including different positions to show the doll's movement, and the remove-ability of Zues, the familiar.

In Progress Photos-

Poly Clay Doll Parts
Jewel-Encrusted Crown
Bald Hera



Finished Doll-

Thank you for the fun contest and wonderful opportunity to make dolls! (I <3 dolls)




P.S.

As per the original U Giv Doll contest, I wanted to send my doll (and th other I made, but did not enter) to their respective OM's. How do I go about getting the OK on this?
