#SamClaflin #FinnickOdair Doll to Play Tybalt in #Shakespeare Romeo and Juliet Stop-Motion Film

I’ve cast my Finnick Odair doll to play Tybalt in my upcoming dolly version of Shakespeare’s classic, Romeo and Juliet. The black wig transforms Sam Claflin’s handsome face into a determined fencer, out for revenge! Check out the still shot from my film below, then scroll down for the free printable sewing patterns and tutorials for the costume he’s wearing.

Feel free to tweet, pin, and/or “like” this image on Facebook. It’s a still shot from my stop-motion film of R&J.

To make Tybalt’s jacket, you’ll need this pattern, and here’s the free YouTube tutorial that shows you how to make it. He’s wearing a very basic pair of pants, for which you can use this same pattern and follow this tutorial (although I’ve since created a better-fitting pattern which you can find here and this is the tutorial for the better-fitting, elastic-waist pants).

His accessories include boots, a sword belt, and a sheath, along with the silver sword he’s brandishing against his enemy, Benvolio. Here’s the pattern for the sword belt, sheath, and bell guard. Here’s the tutorial for the sword belt and sheath. This is a tutorial showing you how to make doll swords, and here’s the pattern for his boots along with a tutorial showing you how to make the boots.

Tybalt’s costume is one of the first ones I made, so some of my tutorial videos for his costume pieces look sort of amateur. I was still learning how to make sewing tutorial videos at that time. I’d like to think I’ve come a long way since then!

I’m sorry to say that, because this is one of the earliest costumes I made for the production, I seem to have misplaced the pattern I used for Tybalt’s shirt. However, I prefer this pattern and this tutorial for making Ken shirts anyway. If I was to do it all over again, I’d use that pattern. All you’d have to do is add lace instead of a cuff to the ends of the sleeves. It would be a pretty simple alteration.

Remember that all of my patterns are free to download and print on this page, and if you go back to this post, you can sign up for a free summer wardrobe for Barbie-sized dolls, handmade by yours truly.

Just a couple more things to note: when you print my patterns, it’s always friendly and kind to like it on FB, tweet about it, and/or pin it to your Pinterest page. That way you’re helping to spread the word that these free, printable sewing patterns exist.

Also, you must enlarge my patterns to fit a full-sized piece of computer paper (8.5 x 11 inches or 216 x 279 mm) before printing. My designs use a 1/4 inch seam (standard for fashion doll sewing projects). If you have any questions about piecing this costume together, feel free to contact me, using my “Submit a Question” form. I’m always happy to help!

    1. I’m working on this film behind the scenes. Last night I worked on adding dialog bubbles for about an hour. Once I get it done, hopefully people will find it entertaining. It has been a hoot to make!
