i was in the poppet mini swap, and was partnered up with the wonderful averyg.  she is a bit of a bookworm, so i asked her what some of her favorite books were, and the one she listed that grabbed my interest was, "dearly departed".  it is a post-apocolyptic, neo-victorian, steam-punky zombie book.  so i bought it, and read it, and LOVED it!!!  i studied the characters, and decided to go with nora...she's a pretty awesome heroine. 

Here is a description of Nora in one scene in the book: "I was wearing a swirly black knee-length skirt with a short crinoline underneath it, black stockings, and black knee-high boots. I had a white blouse with elbow-length sleeves tucked into the skirt. She'd tied my hair back with a white ribbon, just to get it out of the way" (Habel, pg. 237).

i didn't get pictures of her little bloomers, but averyg did if you want to check out the gallery thread Cheesy

ok, no more babbling...on to the pics!!!







not the best pictures in the world...i REALLY need some photography lessons.

thanks for looking!!!!!!!

Not only do I love poppets with awesome cleavage Cheesy but I also love ones with cool hair. And not only did you NAIL both of those points with this doll (I'm so amazed by her hair) but all the other details are lovely too!
