Here is my new Bellatrix Lestrange knitted doll, created as a custom order for an Etsy customer. Bellatrix is awesomely evil, and has suitably mad hair, which you can style in a range of just-got-out-of-bed-and-killed-someone ways. She is wearing a skull pendant and has a figure-hugging bodice and flared black lacy skirt.
This is the first doll that I have knitted with bosoms, so I will award myself ten house points for that achievement.
Bellatrix has already gone off to a new home (as has Snape) but if you'd like one, drop me a convo on Etsy or say hello via this blog.

Every doll that I make is slightly different from the others (as is the nature of hand-made things) and let me warn you that this Snape is particularly moody. I've made some very mellow Snapes in recent months, but this one is in a foul mood and will probably put you in Saturday detention for the next six months. If you think you can handle it, he's in my Etsy shop at the moment.

More visitors to the Slytherin House common room today - Captain Hook and Wendy. This is Captain Hook as played by Jason Isaacs in the 2003 Peter Pan film. He's about 15 inches tall and was so much fun to make that he's inspired me to make more pirates, after I've finished a couple more Harry Potter projects that I have on the go at the moment.
Captain Hook and Wendy have already gone off to a new home but you can order them as custom dolls in my Etsy shop, where you can also ogle at more photos.

Today we have a special visitor to the Slytherin House common room, so I hope you will treat him nicely. Here is Colonel Brandon, from Sense and Sensibility, as played by Alan Rickman.
He's about 14 inches tall, around the same height as my Severus Snape doll, and is incredibly dashing and comes with his trademark hat.
The original doll shown in the photos has already gone to a new home, but you can order another one as a piece of custom knittery from my Etsy shop.
