Not the first time Iíve made an elf doll, but itís my favorite.  ^^ He [yes, he XP] is made almost completely out of felt, with silk flowers and silver sequence glued on, and the bottom of an old black shirt for the belt.  The golden under skirt is made out of Chinese style wine coats I found at the Dollar Store.  His necklace has Bamboo on it [if you can't see that] and was stolen from a candle that was wearing it, my mom got over x-mas and she felt wired about just tossing away a charm she had no use for, so I got it!  Yay!  [I also have a snowflake and a leaf one. ^_^]

Front [Parasol tucked into belt]:



Front [Parasol open} The Parasol is a little crappy, thatís why I keep it tucked in:



Back [hair down] note the sequence:


Back [Hair up]:


This doll is based off of a role-play elf I have and love named Herod Darkmoon.  He is sporting his ceremonial robes, in reds and goldís with Ďstarsí on the Kimono and in his hair, because he first awoke at sunset.  Itís a sacred garment he wears to address his people at the once a year ceremony held on his day of birth [he was the first elf, and also the first king]. It IS a sacred garment, so normally only elven eyes are aloud to see it, but itís a holiday soÖ

Happy Friday the 13th!
