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.

Edit: Fixed vest -- it can move now!

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!

Just want to say that I'm having a lot of fun playing around with this - and I'll confess that I've been using it to help me to visualize an OC I've been planning out lately. Most of my knowledge on historical clothing has been from the 18th century, so this is a neat way for me to experiment and learn a little bit about 19th century things.

So, I'm just wondering, for future reference's sake...would you be alright with my saving a copy of something I come up with here in case I want to show my friends and Watchers what my OC looks like?

This. Is. Awesome!!!

Best doll maker I've ever seen. (And I LOVE that you included the naval uniform. ^_~ I always wondered what would happen if Elizabeth Bennet met Horatio Hornblower... It probably wouldn't have worked. But what a crossover!)

Yeah!!!

It's hard to find a really good guy dress up game, and I kinda like dressing up guys better than girls. At least for historical/fantasy dress-ups. Modern guy dress-ups are kinda boring.
