Theodore Twombly and Llewyn Davis Crochet Dolls

Man, I really need  to be better about this whole posting to my blog thing.  So, last year was a whirlwind.  I made so many Totoros for various design conventions, comic book conventions, a store in Brooklyn.  I didn't really give myself a chance to make new and inspired things.

Then, I attended a films of 2013 party earlier this month, and there were so many amazing costumes that I just had to recreate some of them as dolls, and I am quite chuffed with how they turned out.

First I did Theodore Twombly because my friend Tony made it look so adorable, and I just knew he needed to be a doll:

Next up was Llewyn Davis because my friend Andrew made that look so adorable as well.  And you know.  Guys in their late 20's and early 30's given the right kind of facial hair are just really doll inspirational.  I don't know what it is.

I always struggle with how these dolls fit into the cannon of art inspired by art.  Is this fan art? There is a certain craftsmanship involved.  You could tell two crocheters to make a Theodore Twombly doll, and they would come out completely different.  I guess that's the fun part.  The interpretation.
