Show & tell time! This was a custom piece of an old Victorian-style Dog Catcher. And yes, he's made of toothpicks.
Confession #2. I really had fun with this guy. Maybe I just like attitude, but it seems that the dolls that give me the most problems end up being my favorite. When they're finished, that is.
OK, time to play spot the details! This dapper Dog Catcher has a newsboy-style hat - someday I'll have to do a tutorial on that. There's a whole inner structure that goes into hats.
He's got contrasting lapels on his jacket, & orange buckles. His sleeve has a tiny insignia.
See his tiny bowtie? Ok, look harder - it's there!
My favorite - his net. It's entirely hand-knotted. Such fun! Such torture.
