Simon and Martina
Martina was the first one I finished and that was a slightly labor intensive process since I made the decision to French braid felt and then I decided to also embroider her feet tattoos for an extra bit of awesome.
The first braid was so hard and I was cursing myself the whole time for attempting it, even though I knew it would look really cool in the end. The second one was a lot easier though since I had figured out what the heck I was doing. As I was braiding I thought that the Joon Pyo doll had finally met its match in the hair department, but Martina did get easier while Joon Pyo sucked until I took out that final pin.
His shirt was also rather difficult. The finished product is actually the second one that I did because the first was awful. It was crooked and the colors I chose were bad. This one came out pretty good though.
My one regret about the Simon doll is that the mohawk isn't red and I didn't put designs on the side of his head. I had it all planned out, but I had noticed that he wasn't rocking that hair style so I decided not to do it. I think that I will be forever sad about that.
The owners of these dolls are (of course) Simon and Martina of Eat Your Kimchi. Go check them out!
