Harry Potter

The character contest on my reborning forum is over now, so I can post pictures of my contest baby.  This was my first ever reborn contest.  Harry won 1st place in his category and 3rd place overall!  Not bad for my 3rd ever reborn! 

Harry started as a Trey sculpt by Michelle Fagan. I reborned him, and created his costume pretty much entirely myself.  I made the white button-up shirt, grey pants, grey sweater with Gryffindor house colors, Gryffindor house tie, black robe with hand-embroidered Gryffindor patch, school hat, black shoes & socks (he has white socks under the black so the color won't bleed onto the vinyl of his feet).  I taught myself how to knit so I could make the Gryffindor house colors scarf.  I made a magnetic wand and hand-painted the black rim on his glasses.  I even created his pet owl Hedwig.  Harry wears a reborn bracelet featuring the Hogwarts school crest and Gryffindor house colors.

Harry will be for sale, but first I have a Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger to finish that will go with Harry.

Where's the babies???

I realize that I have only posted one reborn baby on my blog so far.  You may be wondering where the babies are??!  I am currently working on 3 soon to be 5 dolls, all in various stages.  The doll that I have nearest to completion is actually for a contest, so I cannot post him until the contest is over.  During the wait, you might like to take a look at my Annie in progress.  She still needs the rest of her hair:

Princess and the Pea Costume

I was commissioned to make a princess outfit for someone's Elawin fairy doll.  Here is the finished set:
