Feast your eyes, beauties! A transforming Mettaton doll!
I’ve been working on this for weeks, and I wasn’t sure I would actually be able to pull it off. If I ever tried making one of these again, I’d make the box a little bigger. It’s a very tight fit, and the velcro just barely keeps it all together.
I decided early on that I didn’t want his original body to be something separate that you take off and put aside, so came up with this battery backpack design. It’s inspired by a creepy duracell commercial from my childhood. My only regret is that it covers up his lovingly handcrafted butt.
His neck is extra long and his body is felted a little more loosely than most of my dolls to facilitate the transformation. I didn’t post any in-progress shots of this one because I didn’t want to ruin the reveal!
