“The Walking Dead” Art Dolls
I’ve posted about my love of “The Walking Dead” art dolls I’ve been as a travel the internet, and Nerdplusneedle has a new set of dolls to check out.
Ever since season six ended with the introduction of Negan, she started toying with the idea of making a few little art dolls. And little they turned out. Nerdplusneedle kept downsizing and downsizing her pattern because they just looked so cute being so small. They’re 8inches / 20cm tall, with a good portion of that total coming from their heads.
Initially, she thought to make them simple, but then she just kept adding…and adding..and adding. The zippers are real, but the zipper pulls were way too big for them (one was as big as Michonne’s whole vest) so she made teeny tiny ones out of craft foam. And why make plain shoes when you can give them itty bitty laces? With clay soles and added heels? Of course, she made real applique wings that are only a couple centimeters big.
Eyes have been painted and the facial hair is laid on by hand. She wasn’t happy with the painting entirely, but she’s recently purchased some tiny nail brushes so she can –hopefully– get cleaner lines on her next wee faces.
