Neytiri Poppet!!

I decided to make a poppet for my cousin that recently lost her mom (and grand-mother 2 month after that, the very same way her mom died).

I was going to make a random blue fairy, when another cousin that was home when I was attaching the legs said it looked like a Na'vi...

Of course!

I lost contact with that cousin, but I've grew up with her, and I'm 110% SURE she adored the movie Avatar. So I went for it! Here's Neytiri!

She's stuffed with polyfill upcycled from teddies. Her body is blue felt, and I've painted the pattern and "lights".

Her cloths are some kind of a fake leather I had.
The face is done with acrylic paint.

The feather in her hairs is I believe from a roster, the beads are wooden and her bracelets are various glass & acrylic beads.
Her hairs are chenille.

She's a tad more carveous than the regular Na'vi!
Her necklace (made with feather in the movie...) is done with I think sea shell sticks which give a close enough effect :)

thanks for looking!
if you have any comment to improve her, I'm open, as She's not given yet! :D

I'm still thinking of a way to make a spear or a... you know those things that throws arrows? (LOL at my french not wanting to translate tonight! >_<)
I would have made her googles but I have no acetate on hands :(

...I'll have a pretty blue & yellow polka dot to show you soon... Just need to make some bloomers (as in, figuring how-to! ahah)


  1. Awesome poppet!! I am sure your cousin will love it.

  2. Maybe you could make the bow and arrows out of skewers(super long tooth pick looking things) and string and paper.

    she looks great though.

  3. GASP! I want!! She turned out awesome!! Now I want to make one!! Love her!

  4. Andréann, she is absolutely wonderful! Love He so much! Your cousin will feel comforted by her,I'm sure!

    Kisses from us.
