Tweet Did you like James Cameron's "Avatar"? I sure did - what really stuck with me where the gorgeous colors in the forest at night. At the time I didn't know what to do with it - I was inspired, sure, but I had no idea what to make. When I saw the blue doll skin fabric I immediately knew what I wanted to do.

Well, I finally did it, and finished his hair and clothing too (the breading and beading was a lot of work - the beads just barely got on the little braids...), so now you get to see him.
My son loves him, too. But that's not really much of a surprise, he loves all my dolls and wants his picture taken with them :-)
Nerdy greetings from cold but sunny Vienna,
PS. I will, from now on, refrain from using my kids real names on my blog.

I have yet to find cool pseudonyms - I'll just use son and daughter for now. Do you have any cool ideas?
