The Crossroads of the Aether
It might not be typical, but I'm creating a steampunk doll out of an American Girl doll. I got a used Addy planning to replace her eyes (she has a condition called silver eye) but the more I looked at her (or she looked at me!) I knew I had to incorporate those eyes into her character.
Introducing Steampunk Addie., who is still very much a work in progress!
Steampunk Addie accompanied me to last weekend's Phoenix Comicon. We had a lot of fun and she gained new admirers. (Before we went the doll boards voted on her three outfits and her modern outfit won by a landslide, much to our surprise.)
You can read about her trip on her blog: http://steampunkaddie.blogspot.com/2011/05/ive-comicon-and-gone.html
Love the convention photos!
We hope to someday get organized enough to post our dolls' pictures. Thanks for the inspiration.
I am SO glad I found this thread. I've recently gotten disgusted with my preteen puberty hormone raging daughter and have decided to only sew doll clothes I WANT to from now on (and if she doesnt like it she can damn well suck it up and sew something else) and was planning on starting some Sara some SteamPunk threads after I finish her traditional Hungarian folk wear for the upcoming Hungarian festival (which I went dressed SteamPunk last year..... yes... she's single, she has 3 kids, she's pregnant, and she sews and hand embroiders. She is a Goddess. Deal. lol :) VERY cool that Im not the only SteamPunk inclined adult who plays with dolls. :D
