Clue Dolls

Post by CluedoKid » Tue Jan 15, 2008 10:57 am

Current Art Project for School:

Dolls with a Clue Theme.

I plan to make 6 dolls (Maybe Boddy/Black if there's time) of the famous 6 characters. I might put miniature weapons in their hands and everything. If there's any suggestions from people (i.e. A particular edition I should recreate) please let me know. I'm at the preliminary work at the moment.

Something a little more sophisticated than pipe cleaners. But I don't know exactly yet.

I think you should use the 1996 characters or perhaps model them off of your sims ones. I also think you should use Rev. Green instead of Mr..

Just suggestions.

What about sock puppets or paper mache. I made the Mario characters out of sock puppet easily. As for editions, I like the 1949 style the best.

Even more sophisticated than sock puppets or paper mache. These dolls have to be top notch brand style. Packaging and everything.

I would recommend white cloth then( at least for the body) with stuffed-animal stuffing. At any arts and crafts store, they have this fluff and you can put it. It's best to create the body first (might want to make a stencil first and mark on the cloth. Sew three edges first (inside out). Stuff the cloth and sew the last edge. If you can use doll parts, use that for the head, arms, and legs.

How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

Maybe, they will be slightly less ugly than that MA Mrs. White doll.

Which gives an idea! Why don't you do a ceramic doll?

I'm now thinking I may base the dolls off of one of the following editions:


1972

1992

1996


Personally, I'm leaning towards 1992. Mind you, I ADORE 1996 Peacock's outfit, but I do find 1992 Peacock quite elegant as well, and her dress would probably be easier to replicate. I do quite also like 1972 because there's a new style that can be put into that all together. Because they don't wear their colours, their packaging would be coloured instead.
