Okay, so over a year ago, I had decided to try and make a fairy doll.

But, I had never sculpted anything with that kind of detail. So I made a silly face. Then I set it down for a week. then I made an old, saggy torso. I added it to the head and left it for a few more weeks. Then I made hands. But didn't know how to attach them. So the head/ torso and the hands lay on my craft desk for a few months. And the story goes until she was slowly pieced together.

My next anguish was making clothes for her. Everything I have on her is made by me, down to the knit shawl.

Tonight, I decided to finish by adding a wig of alpaca hair.

Here she is almost 100% finished. Now to decide if I add fairy wings or leave her be!

Here's the front of her.


Here's the back of her hair.


I can't believe she's finally mostly done.

Such beautiful work.  It looks like it took you forever to make this.  So much detail.  Amazing work.
