My dear lejays17 was the origin of my first foray into the amazing A Song of Ice and Fire universe!
Inspired by their Game of Thrones characters, meet the Lannister twins, Cersei and Jaime.


By right of birth, Cersei was the first. =)
Love her so much! Lover her hair and her bright colours and her aura and absolutely everything! <3


The arm didn't have enough length for all I originally wanted to do, but I used some more of this pretty gold lace on the wrist and pequinese stitch for the elbow.


We wanted her to have some sort of lion imagery to her, so Etsy to the rescue! =D I found these perfect brass lions pendants with the perfect size!


But Cersei didn't travel alone! Escorting her, a member of the Kings Guard.
The helmet went smoothly and the fabulous silver pequinese stitch got the embroidery done quickly. The scales took a while, but a lot could have gone wrong with him and it didn't, so I'm deeming him a sweetheart. <3


And here's Jaime without his helmet.
I'm particularly proud of his hair. I think I got the look pretty close.


The sleeves have the same scale-effect and silver embroidery as the armour.


And here they are together!

They are so much cuter in the flesh too!

Cersei is showing plenty of attitude already, and the lion pendant is just perfect.

I'm currently debating whether Jaime should be wearing his helmet or not, and he looks cute both ways, so it'sdifficult. :)

=D She does that, doesn't she? I may not love the character, but she does pass a fierce aura about her.
I'm so happy you like them!

PS: later this week... DOCTOR! :D

Squee!! *bounce, bounce, bounce*

I've been having a Dr Who weekend, yellowblackhaze has been very good about letting me monopolize the big TV to watch old episodes (and new ones, and some "documentaries"). It's not every day your favourite TV show turns 50... I even had cake to celebrate! :)

HOLY CRAP!! The detail in Jaime!!! That's amazing! Is each of those scallops individually cut? And that embroidery stitch is amazing, I'll have to look that one up, myself. XD

In other words, I'm in love with you and your dolls. Every time. :D

<3<3<3 Thank you!
=D Yep! Every single one, individually cut and stitched on.
Oh, you must try it! It's quite easy and it looks great with minimum practice! I'm absolutely in love with it! Search for this great site named Needle and Thread. It has video tutorials for great embroidery stitches!
