Well he is done. He has been a real work in progress. I made the head in a class I took several years ago & really liked it. Always wanted the body to be as good. His armature includes a rib cage. I used Lisa Lichtenfel's body technique. I was using it for a little girl and botched the pelvis so it was perfect for the elf. My sister came up with the idea of the suspender idea with the buttons and I love how that looks. He will being going to live with her after his public debute at the "B Street Bookstore in Hayward, CA" this month.
