puck, the faun halfling.

when i found a cheap PukiPuki body on the DOA marketplace in March 2013 that was being sold in Australia, i snapped it up – i had some rough plans to find a Fairyland Multihead to go with it. however, less than two weeks later i stumbled across some DaisyDayes hooves for PukiPuki being sold on Flickr, and thus the concept for a little faun was born 🙂

i managed to purchase a Cupid Multihead from a local hobbyist (very, very local – it turned out she lived in the next suburb over!), and from there i began to put together my faun.

the hooves were originally painted quite an orangey-brown.

i cleaned off and re-blushed the hooves, and then did my first (and then second!) faceup. 🙂 it wasn’t perfect, but his personality began to show. he was christened Puck, and he is certainly an impish and trouble-making creature!

however…

i wasn’t doing much with Puck, and was considering selling him… so, as a last ditch effort, i gave him a new faceup.

much better! it made me really fall in love with him, and has spurred me on to finally completing him. on his to-do list is –

  • a new wig (a bit like this hopefully)
  • new antlers and a tail (hopefully from Sparrow’s Shop on Etsy)
  • new shorts/overalls (my original plan for him was to have knitted pants, so i probably need to commission some. at the same time i’d like to get him a cardigan – Winter can get cold!)

not sure when this will be complete as i am on a bit of a spending hiatus (except for something sooooo amazingly exciting that i bought last week and i cannot wait to show off when it comes in!) but it’s nice to have a firm plan for Puck.

i think he’s happy about that, too 🙂

    I have always loved your little Puck and I’m pleased to read you’ve decided to keep the little feller…he’s such a cutie pie!
    Cheers,

  2. Aw he’s such a little sweetie! ❤ I'm glad you managed to rekindle the old flame, it can be so hard to do sometimes with dolls!

    • thank you! by lucky coincidence, i have just met a fellow bjd owner who knits in tiny scale who will be knitting new pants for him, so i will be able to get started on his to-do list sooner than i expected! now i need to make a wig for him 🙂
