This girl has been sitting in my sketchbook for about a year, waiting for me to get around to creating her.
I've recently started making little bitty dolls, and it was the perfect base to finally make my cheshire girl.
I have to admit, she's my favorite doll I've made to date!
It was sooooo hard sending her off!



This is Chessa.



She's 5 and a half inches tall if you count her big kitty ears Smiley





She's wired so she can hold some poses!



I painted her with acrylic paints and sealed her with a matte varnish.





She's a bit mad, but I hear only the best people are. Wink

She is FANTASTIC!  So original!  What a lovely twist on The Cheshire Cat!  I wouldn't be able to let her go either.   Grin

I just love your dolls!  Their adorable faces make my day Smiley

Those kitty ears are so cute and I'm loving her colours (especially in her little dress)
