Ever since I saw the Doctor’s new outfit I’ve been dying to make her! I love the look and the vibe of this new Doctor. Change is always good and I’m all for female lead characters with fleshed out personalities and opportunities to develop. I couldn’t wait to make her jumper, her jacket and most of all, her braces. Here is my amigurumi doll of Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor:
Based on the promotional photo:
Another photo of the doll. I couldn’t do all of the stripes on her jumper. It would make her body too long so I stuck to yellow and orangey-red. I have included her blue socks underneath her boots, and her trousers are crocheted over her jumper so that I could attach her braces.
(Don’t worry, I’m asking for a lightbox for Christmas! Also my New Years goal will be to get better at photography).
The hair was a challenge! I usually create characters with ponytails so I can tie the hair up at the back. I have crocheted hair underneath, but the basin bowl cut on her forehead didn’t look right. I added more hair for her on top, making the crochet hair a hair cap instead, and glued the top strands down in place. I’m happy with the outcome!
So, what do you think? I’m really happy with her, and she’s currently sitting on my fireplace waiting for her time to shine underneath the stars and planets! She might need a friend by her side, so stay tuned 😉
