My mom made a doll in a Renaissance Faire costume for me for my birthday.  Its just so aweseome, I had to share!



She's made from an Elinor Peace Baily pattern (don't know the name of it, but I can ask if anyone wants to know).  Apparently, it was a major pain-in-the-butt, but I couldn't be happier!  Its just too cool!

I can't take her clothes of to show it with a picture, but her shoulders, elbows, hips, and knees are all button-jointed, so she's pretty posable.

Here's a close-up of her face:


You can see the purple streak of hair (I dye my hair purple sometimes...) and my old pair of earrings that she's now wearing.  You can also see the little 'boobies' sticking out of the top of the corset.  Thats just too cool, IMO.  My mom also stitched on a toe-ring, but I couldn't get a good picture of such a tiny detail.

What a spectacular gift. Your mom's got some mad skills.  I love all the detail, esp the pushed up bazooms!  That gave me a chuckle.

2 questions: one, what did she use/make for the flower garland in her hair?  Two, what have you named the doll?  I cool doll like that needs a name!

One, I'm pretty sure she bought mini 'silk' flowers and used floral wire to weave them into a wreath.  She and I used to make life-sized fake flower wreaths this way.  There's a few ribbons tied to the back, that you can't see in the pic, also.

Two, I'm still trying to come up with an awesome name (just got her a few days ago).

Three, thank you all for the nice comments.  And yeah, my mom rocks ^^ !

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.
