Ziggy Stardust part II – I am an alligator…

Posted on: July 22, 2013

Part two of  my adventures in the world of Ziggy Stardust. Here is another doll that was inspired by this look. I spent a lot of time going through photos before deciding to go for the eyepatch. Ziggy had an amazing wardrobe, the most difficult part was to make up my mind about which costume I wanted to make!


It was a bit challenging, there is a lot going on, especially with the shirt. I couldn’t possibly make the exact pattern, but I did consider calling David Bowie to ask him for a piece to dress my doll..well..  in my dreams I did!! I did try to keep the same tones of colors, but I really played with what looked best rather than making a copy.

It took me several days to make it, with trials and errors. I used “autumn red” from Caron for the hair, which I bought last Christmas when the color was in season. I call it “Ziggy’s yarn”, because I have only used it for this doll.


I couldn’t help making a little spider, it is from Mars of course. I thought it would be a cute addition to the doll.

Moonage Daydream was in my head while working on this doll, I kept singing “I am an alligator…” over and over.I intend to make a third Ziggy Stardust doll, this time with the round patch on his forehead, and one legged costume. If you haven’t seen my first Ziggy Stardust doll, here is a link to the post: Ziggy Played Guitar – Part I
