More drama in trying to show more creations...why does posting photos have to be a nightmare? I spent the majority of today just trying to post photos..normally takes an hour at most. Today it was post a entry in my blog..then try agin..grrrr! So here we go again. The "Blue Faery-Self Portrait" sculpture is the other doll travelling to the Wiltwyck Quilters Guild-doll exhibit..she will be displayed, along with "Timeless", and they will also be for sale at the show. Both sculptures are cloth, hand sewn, and about 27" tall. It took about 3 months from the planning stages to completion...and the callous on my fingertips prove it was both enjoyable and hard work! I will try to create a new album in the photo gallery of this Blue Faery..but for now..my blog readers get to see her first.
Early stages...this shows how a sculpture looks without her finishing touches.
Although she had her "make up" on..adding the hair really brought her to life.
blue lace netting tights and fingerless gloves were added next.
over the tights..there is a petticoat, pantaloons, blouse and tabard.
add a floor length skirt, a vest, wings, tiara, cat mask, and her shopping bag full of her favorite things and her faithful cat ..and she became quite regal!
