I mostly make charms from polymer clay, but I decided to try my hand at making a poseable art doll. It was quite the learning curve and not everything went to plan but I'm mostly happy with how she turned out though I wish the paint job on her face turned out better; I am kind of new to painting and I didn't realize colours would dry so much darker than how they appear wet.  Undecided  I also need to hunt down some tiny brushes - tiny details are hard with big brushes, lol~!

She is a little over 6 inches tall, not including her hair. She can move her arms and legs and sit or stand on her own. I also made her a little 'drink me' vial and she apparently stole The Mad Hatter's hat. Wink   She is sort of a cross in style of Marie Antoinette and Tim Burton.  Wink Cheesy

Thanks for looking!~

I love the way you've taken inspiration and then made it entirely personal. Excellent.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Sorry about the late reply! Thanks so very much!! Her head, arms and feet/boots are sculpted on wire which is then wrapped together with more wire then wrapped again in pipe cleaners for body bulk before being 'dressed'.

She's adorable, I love the drink me vial. How on earth did you make it?

I'm not sure if you mean Alice (if so, see above  Cheesy Cheesy) or the drink me vial; the vial is just a tiny little jar I bought on etsy and filled with some iridescent glitter, clear glue and coloured with paint. ^__^
