Hi-res Amanda Palmer Doll and Costume
Hi-res scan of my AFP doll and costume.
When I went to see Amanda Palmer's concert, one thing that really caught my eye was the AMAZING jacket that she wore during the song "Bottom Feeder" song. Without much thought, I decided that I would create an Amanda doll just so I could make the jacket. Turns out the designer Kambriel www.kambriel.com/ was in the audience :) At some point through tweeting about making the doll, I started talking to Kambriel about what I was making. I don't know the exact way we started communicating, but I do remember that after I showed her the jacket I had made she offered remnants from the actual train on Amanda's jacket she's been using on her tour! I can't believe how amazing it turned out! I am so grateful :)
Everything is handsewn/crocheted except for the chiffon which is just too delicate and there was SO much of it. I didn't do much detail to the face for a couple reasons. I intended to do more, but I grew to love the simplicity of just Amanda's trademark eyebrows, and I think it gives her a Coraline look which I had not expected.
