Hello all!

Aurora was born far too long ago. I am terrible at posting things :/

Here she is before clothing and a proper hairstyle:

I made her from some black microsuede that had absolutely ZERO stretch, so needlesculpting her was quite a task. She has some strange creases as a result. I didn't have the jointing locations down at all, so she's a bit wide- legged, but she still stands!

I hand painted her eyes with student's acrylics, but opted not to put lashes on her, given they would have been invisible on her skin anyway! She's wearing a sock- sweater I made using this tute- https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=216844.msg2333354#msg2333354, and a super mini circle skirt.

Turns out the yarn I used for her hair (moonshine or something similar, long out of make I believe) will just tear apart at the slightest tug, so her buns and braids are permanent now. I made her little mini scrunchies!

Love her hair style. And wow, she stands. I've never gotten one to stand on it's own.
