I made this dolly for L. She is inspired by the artwork of Gris Grimly and from her feet to the tips of her pigtails she is about 23 inches long. I hope you all like her as much as we do.

I am only at this moment realizing that this is probably not the most glamourous shot


here she is from the back so you can see her tat


And L was really sweet and sent me some pics of her with her dolly


I took pictures before I put her necklace on and L is wearing a similar necklace in this photo which is awesome!

Thank you everyone  Smiley

She took an evening and a the morning after to make. The hardest part was her hair. I had to paint the back of her head with black acrylic paint and let that dry then I sat down and hand sewed all the strands on. It is VERY hard on your fingers to sew through acrylic paint.
