Meet Peri

Peri is complete! The beloved companion of the fifth and sixth Doctors has been added to the dolls for Barbie Who? I started working on this doll in early January, so she has taken much less time than Cofelia. I am estatic to have finished so quickly, and hopefully this will be a good sign for things to come.

Peri was created from a Flower Power Teresa doll that I purchased at a thrift store for $1. I chose this doll because she came with her hair bobbed off. The short hair struck me as Peri from the first day I saw her, so in a way the doll chose the character instead of the other way around. To transform her from Teresa to Peri, I cleaned her up, trimmed her hair, and dressed her in new clothes. The final piece of the puzzle was a fun accessory, and like any good botany student she now has some plants to study. Here is a rundown of everything done for Peri.

Bring it all together and you get one awesome companion.

Just for fun, I had to break out Cofelia and the adipose to see how they look together. I think the adipose go perfectly with the plants. It is nice to have somebody around to keep Cofelia and her charges in line.

I had a lot of fun making Peri! I enjoyed knitting an outfit for her. They take much less time than crochet, so I may knit more pieces for the blog. I plan on buying a new pair of 2 mm knitting needles so that I can create patterns with the proper sized needles. That may very well be my next big adventure; I plan on buying them when I go into town this week. I can’t wait to start the third entry for the blog!

  3. I love the plants. I haven’t seen a Peri episode of Doctor Who for a long time but I do think you have caught her quite well. So, Who is next?

  4. The accessories are a perfect match for Peri. Brilliant!

  5. Peri is perfect for the doll. The hair bob and outfit suits her personality right-on.
    Great plants, they’re a very fun addition.
