Poppet music

Earlier this summer, the poppets and I went to a music festival in Quebec!  Here they are listening to one of the musicians.

The newest poppets

I've made several new poppets recently and haven't yet posted their pictures.  So here they are, all Napoleonic wars era.

Meet McIntyre

I've made a new poppet for a friend. He's a mid-18th century British marine corporal and his name is McIntyre. I love him and think he's heart-snatchingly handsome and possibly my finest poppet yet (though still imperfect).

Lt. Jerrold meets Capt. Aubrey

A brief poppet picspam.  I just got these little model ships today and couldn't resist showing them off. 

It's funny to see how CLEAN and pristine Jerrold is compared to Jack, but that's because he hasn't seen any action yet.  Jack and I are rather proud of his scars, though I'm glad there's not a Killick around to nag us.  Jack's lost 80% of his gold braid, and I've given up trying to glue it back on.

I've suddenly become obsessed with making miniature bonnets.  Here is one.

Miss Bennet has a bonnet

My poppet of Elizabeth Bennet received a brown velvet bonnet as a Christmas present, made by me.  Actually it was a gift to Lizzy's owner, but it fit the poppet better than it fit her.

I'm rather pleased with my bonnet making of late!

New poppets!

I've made some new poppets for my friend sharpiefan!  And I think they might be my best yet.  Of course Jack and Stephen will always be my favorites, but I'm very enamored with this pair.  I could easily get addicted to making poppets...

poppets

I'm making some new poppets for a friend, and it reminded me that there were some Jack and Stephen poppet pictures I never posted after my Alaska trip, showing all the wear and tear they'd been through and their happy reunion with their wives.  Also, my niece made up a song about them when I stopped in California on my way home, and I have a video of her singing it.

Jack and Stephen escape from the north

The last time we heard from Jack and Stephen, they were visiting the north pole (or close to it), having tried unsuccessfully to catch a ride with passing Eskimos in their umiak.  So they had to search for other ways to get home, having had enough of the cold and wanting to go home to their sweethearts.

Jack and Stephen to the pole...

Or about as close as they're going to get for a good long while.  The north pole, that is.

When last we heard from our poppets, they were journeying through the arctic tundra, overcoming great obstacles...

And now, they journey well into the arctic, up above even the arctic circle where no poppet has gone before.

Facing great perils!!!

Jack and Stephen's Arctic Adventure



The last time we heard from the poppets, they were in California meeting Captain Bob and his charming wife Rose.  Well, after riding on the back of a dolphin for a while, they found a suitable ship to take them north.

Poppets' travelogue

Jack and Stephen are on the move again, this time traveling with me to California.  They met a very gracious hostess - two, actually.  One my niece Amelia, and the other a small porcelain lady named Rose.

I have roomboxes!

(LJ is being really slow and weird!  Here's the second try at this post...)

I picked up my roombox(es) yesterday!  They were custom built to my specifications, yay.  It's one unit with two rooms, one above for the captain's cabin, and one below for the surgeon's dispensary/sick bay.  The back panel for the captain's cabin isn't attached, so I can adapt it and add windows later (when I figure out how exactly I want to do that.)

I haven't even started doing anything to them.  I think I'm going to stain the outside, so it will look like an apothecary chest, and put a brass handle on top for carrying.  But I'm so excited and ADD about it that I'm paralyzed with the inability to start!!!

Here are pictures.  The Plexi covering-film hasn't been peeled off yet.  I'll wait till after painting and all.
