Where would my Merlin dolls be without the once and future king, Arthur Pendragon?
Merlin’s hair is giving me some serious trouble at the moment (as is the WordPress app on my phone, as the last two posts I’ve tried to make haven’t gone through). It started off well enough, but despite two attempts is just not doing what I want it to. See? Not quite what I’m going … More Off with his head!
Although the Merlin fandom likes to joke about Merlin’s limited wardrobe, there are still decisions to be made about what a tiny Merlin doll should be wearing. He tends to wear trousers, a long tunic with a neckerchief and a jacket over the top but there are a variety of colour combinations, and I’m not … More Merlin – Inspiration
