I have been a fan of Bowie since the days of the Thin White Duke, it was my introduction to rock, and my farewell to children songs. I love music as much as I love craft, so I thought I would start a rock'n'roll series. I had to start with Ziggy of course, since he's always been my hero. I mixed and matched different styles of outfit he used on stage, his famous red boots, and the Aladdin Sane trademark that marked the end of the Ziggy Stardust era. The hardest part was the hair, because I am not a hairstylist. I cut away hoping it would turn out alright.. snip! snip!
I am just loving your work!!! I'm working on a Jareth from Labyrinth and hopefully a Life on Mars Bowie (in on a Bowie kick right now) and yours are just so inspiring. May I ask how you attached the hair? Hair gives me anxiety, lol. Did you stitch the strands in with thread or latch-hook them?
Thank you! I didn't stitch them, I cut several group of long strands that I attached to the head from top to back, and on the side. I worked on his haircut afterward, and used hairspray to get his hair to stick up. I have a tutorial on my blog to teach 4 different ways to make hair, the one I used for Bowie is the second one: missdolkapots.wordpress.com/20…
Aww! I really want to make a Ziggy doll: any tips? Perhaps something a little like this... I can knit by the way.
I love this!! I've been a bowie fan since I was 5 years old and watched "Labyrinth" for the first time. This is so adorable! If you could sell it how much would you charge??
Thank you! I love Labyrinth, and I recently introduced the movie to one of my friends little daughter who adored it. It's one of her favorite movie now, and she always refers to David Bowie as "the goblin king". If I could sell it, I would probably charge $45.
THIS IS ADORABLE! Are you selling them? I may have to get one!
Thank you! I only made one, it's fan art. I can't sell characters that are copyrighted, unfortunately! lol
WOOOOOW! I love it!!
he looks so adorable!!
This is so adorable!!!
So cute! I'll bet he's snuggly. :3
As a Bowie fan myself, I must say this is existent!
oh my god, this is genius! <3
This is beautiful! This is amazing! His little costume is so perfect and I love his haircut.
Thank you! I looked at a lot of photos before deciding how to make the costume. The shoes was no brainer, had to be the red boots!
This is one of the best human amis I have ever seen!!! I adore it and you did such a gorgeous job. I defiantly adore the simple details on his outfit as well as the blush. It is super duper fabulous and I now must watch to see all of your beautiful creations ^.^
oh my god, this is utterly fabulous. i might have made a noise that wasn't entirely human. this is really, really great work. i hope to see the rest of your rock'n'roll series!
Thank you!! I think I am going to make a Sid Vicious doll next. I had so many suggestions, I am going to build an army of rockstars! lol
Yes. Fucking yes. YES. GODDAMNIT 8U XD I want this so bad XDD

Oh my goodness... I WANT THIS DOLL!!! My Grandma and I are both huge David Bowie fans, and Ziggy Stardust is like a legend to me!
I am glad that Ziggy is still popular. Your grandma has great taste in music if she likes Bowie!
