Grandpa/Santa and Grandma/Mrs. Santa measurements

Since BB has been out of stock on these bodies, I have been asked if I would make them for a customer. My problem is that I do not have either kit and have never had one of the bodies.

I would really appreciate it if someone who has either of these kits and/or one of these bodies would take some measurements for me. Even if you only can provide a few measurements, it would be awesome! Basically, I need the following -

Diameter of Santa’s arms (above the groove)
Diameter of Mrs. Santa’s arms (above the groove)

Diameter of Santa’s legs (above the groove)
Diameter of Mrs. Santa’s legs (above the groove)

Measurement from neck to crotch on Santa’s body
Measurement from neck to crotch on Mrs. Santa’s body

Length of Santa’s cloth arm from neck to arm casing
Length of Mrs. Santa’s cloth arm from neck to arm casing

Length of Santa’s cloth leg from crotch to leg casing
Length of Mrs. Santa’s cloth leg from crotch to leg casing

Thank you!

Carmen

Just happened to think, can you or are you going to make the arms jointed? If so, that is what I would prefer.
Thanks!

Interesting idea, Bonnie… let me give it some thought! Oops! I just realized… The problem with jointed arms is that you would not be able to run armature into the arms in order for them to hold a pose.

Carmen, you have NO idea how many times I have ordered an armature for a jointed body!! Please keep in touch so I can purchase three bodies from you. THANKS!

Do you still want me to try to convert this to jointed arms? Or are you wanting it unjointed as it currently is?

Carmen

Bonnie -

I’m guessing you probably want bent arms, right? Give me a few days to perfect the unjointed pattern and then I will work up a jointed arm version for you.

Carmen

Oh, Bonnie - you are too funny!

I am currently working on my first prototype of this body as I type and I think it is turning out real nice. I have added elbow and knee gussets so that when you bend them, there is extra fabric to allow for the extra required for the bend. This body is so crazy big as it needs to be for a 34" doll with 1/4 limbs! I did not realize how much fabric it was going to use up.

Right now, I am working on trying to get the arm length correct and then it will be all done - yay! Thank you again, BB, for supplying the measurements that I needed.

I will let you know when I am ready for your bodies, Bonnie.

Thanks again!

Carmen
