NOTE: If parts of the sleeves disappear or show up when you don't want them -- click on the shirt again to have them show up, or click on the coat to make them invisible.

The first dress up doll in almost a year!

I'm so excited to have this finished. I was literally thinking about this all the time. I even had dreams of assembling and coding.

I always wanted to picture my favorite hero while reading Jane Austen, Georgette Heyer and others. I made this, in hopes other people wanted to as well. And ever since Lost in Austen, I HAD to. Just had to.

So, here it is, as accurate as I could make it, even including those weird cossask pants and ankle trousers, sigh.

I'm no genius at coding -- there were some serious flaws that I tried my best to work around. But my goal was for the guy to look good once all the items were on him (or off, muahaha -- though I gave him a package that rivals the Ken doll). Hopefully it worked!

OH -- And miliary experts, please don't bayonet me -- I have no idea how accurate the guns and uniforms are, I just wanted them to look cool. The army uniform is based off of several Mr. Wickhams -- and I believe the navy uniform is for a naval commander.

If you see any serious mistakes, please let me know! I've stared at it so long I can't tell the difference between a waistcoat and a quizzing glass.

NOTE ABOUT THE VAGUE NUDITY:

The doll was not intended for kids, though I don't think it's inappropriate. I made it for people who love Regency literature, whether it's Austen or $5 romance novels. Let's face it. Many want to see Mr. Darcy naked. This is a stylized peek at that.

P.S. Men have reproductive organs. I'm not kidding! They really do!

Hi I have a probably really unreasonable question, but I thought I had to ask. Do you think you could make a combination of the regency hero and heroine? As in, on the same screen? I really adored your female Regency dress up, and I also adore this male on, so... please? :) thanks for the consideration, disregard this comment if it would be too hard

In my head, I've had a dress up doll that involved a romance novel cover hero and heroine together, where you could dress them up in multiple historical periods. Sadly, I don't have any new dress up dolls planned for a while!

Can I print this, for if I cannot I will be severely disappointed in this backgammon.
