I wonted to participate in this challenge from the moment it was announced. While I was wondering how to make my exact tween. Suddenly very sad thought came to my mind "There is no point of doing that project because it will be fat ugly and boring doll that nobody will wont to look at". Till that moment I was sure that my dyes of low self esteem are behind me, that challenge made me realise that there is still  something wrong with my self image and that it still sucks joy out of my life.
I decided to create a doll that will show not only how I look but also how I fell and what kind of hopes I have fore the future.
From what was said in the post announcing the challenge I understand that I'm not the only one that have troubles with self image so I hope some of you can relate to my doll.
1) This is more ore less how I look like. Doll is dressed in the miniature version of my favorite black hoed, and black skirt with lace trim. What you cant see very well of photos is that hoode hes zipper and pockets and that there. Doll also has black and white stockings.


2) When you take of dolls clothes you can see all the fares about my self and about my future. You can see also that There is hole inside.

3) When you open the whole you can see my hopes that there is something good inside of me and that in the future I will be able to "blossom"

This is pattern I altered to mack my doll http://judisdolls.com/angel/page1.html

What a beautiful doll. It really touched me. It shows not only your physical self, but your inner self as well. I hope that you keep it always, and that the flower continues to overshadow your fears.

Bravo!
