Dressed Halflings

I've been having a little fun with my Tian and Kismet now they have told me they are Halflings. Unlike the Hobbits of the Tolkien novels and the Halflings in D&D, mine do not have hairy feet and are quite cute in comparison. However, they each have their own bow and arrows, (well arrows at least, I still have to make their bows) and are intensely courageous.


I made their costumes from Ultrasuede and used some of the Angelina Fibre fabric, that I showed in a previous post, to decorate the front of their tunics.


I may have to trim the feather on Kismet's hat, as it seems a little on the large size compared with Tian's. I didn't have a pattern, I just made it up as I went along. The arrows are made from toothpicks which I painted gold, with tiny heart shaped beads as the arrow tips.

  1. They're so cute! I love how good you are at creating stuff yourself :3 I wish I could be as talented, but I guess it takes lots of time and practice >w<
    Really cute photos too!

    1. Ah thanks Nikki, that's so sweet of you. Yes, it takes practice, the more you practice the better you become, and believe me I have had many, many years of practice. The older I get, the more I realise, there is still much more to be learned.

    1. Hi Giac,
      Thanks, I tried to model the hats like those I remembered from the old Robin Hood TV show. :)

  4. Those outfits are adorable! Did you choose the backdrop based on the completed outfits or did you plan the outfits with this background in mind? Because the colours in both go so well together they seem like they must have been planned as a set!

    1. Thank you JS. I had ordered the back drop to use for my stories beforehand. However, once we had decided that the dolls would become Halflings in my story, their costumes just sort of evolved. When they were completed, I thought they would look good with that background. I must add it's very satisfying when things come together so easily.

    1. Thanks Sharon, I'm pleased with the way they turned out, but I may do the tan one again as the Ultrasuede I used isn't as fine as the green. i'll probably use the pink that I used for the hat and pouch as it's thinner and hangs better.

  6. Oh Gosh, what cute outfits! You did an excellent job on those. I really love how woodsy they feel. Of course, the dolls look adorable in them and the arrows sound like such a neat idea.
