My partner got her box so now I can post this.  If you ever read Watership Down you will know that the rabbit grim reaper is the Black Rabbit of Inle.  So Holly, being a proper gothy young teenage rabbit, is obsessed with him.

I used MalibuKasey's eyelid tute and glued on some false eyelashes (for humans) on her little eyelids.  Man, that was a bear to keep em on.  Many layers of glue and lots of cursing.  Her eyes were purchased 20mm brown safety back eyes from Hobby Lobby.  She is made from Alovasuede.  She also has a pompom tail, but she is not mine anymore and I didn't take a picture.   Cry

Hi Holly! 



Here is the full view:

my son walked by the computer as i opened this post. he has been really wanting a poppet since i have been making one for his sister. he looked at the pictures and said me want a bunny, not a kitty. when i told him he can have a bunny he went running to tell his sister that he is going to have a bunny and not a kitty.

i love the eyelashes. now i want to make a "sexy" one for my husband. lol

She is lovely. I'm going to have to read that book. Cheesy

Got any tips for the eyelids? I tried a few eyelids and then gave up! Just could not get the right and I really wanted to get my girl done.
