So here is my new little lady. I was definitely inspired by my Halloween costume since I was cleaning up most of the little white bits of lace and such yesterday. I absolutely adore her little face. I named her Antiquita (an-ti-kwi-tuh) because I imagine her playing in the dust around old books and dusty china. Her hair is yarn that I unraveled in two colors, a dusty pink and a white with iridescent bits in it. To make her hair have so much volume, I glued some polyfill to her head first and then bunched the yarn around it. Her little face is hand painted and I was going for more of a kabuki type look here so she's not so Froud-y.
Her outfit is made of vintage and scrap lace, tulle, and fake flowers. I wanted to incorporate more of a nature feel into this one which is why there are so many layers to her little skirt. I do need to find a less clunky way of doing shoes, though because these look like paper sacks tied to her feet, haha.






Thanks for looking! Comments, crits welcome!

She's fantastic! I love her hair! The dress looks perfect, natural and layered like that.

How did you stick the hair to her head?

Her body is made from floral wire which is good and thick so she's posable. I create an armature and then covered her body in white craft felt.



Like so!

I used hot glue. Mostly because I'm impatient. Smiley
