Holy Superhero, Batman!
I've been asked more times than I can count if I make a boy doll. The boy doll has been in the back of my mind but I just couldn't decide how I wanted him to look. Should he wear shorts? What fabric would his shirt be? I just didn't feel I had the idea.
And then....we were invited to a superhero birthday party for our friends' 5 year old son. Ah-ha! "I need to make Asher a superhero doll for his birthday!" I thought. Unfortunately, I thought of the idea the day of the birthday party. So, we bought him 2 plastic superhero figurines from Walmart instead.
But in the middle of the night last night, fate smiled upon me. Well, fate woke me up at 2:00 AM and wouldn't let me go back to sleep. I got up, made my coffee and played Slingo for an hour. In the middle of a "Slingoriffic" game, I realized that I had plenty of time to make a Super Asher doll! And away I went.
I'm so happy with how he turned out! Super Asher is the prototype, but I am offering the superhero doll as a custom doll with choice of skin color, hair color, eye color, monogram and costume color.
I can't wait to make more superhero dolls...(I totally need a girl superhero, don't I?)
What color combinations should I offer?
