The mystery girl is revealed!

I decided to make a Victorian style doll.
So the mystery girl is not a mystery any more :), she is a simple girl from the old Victorian age, with her hair free and beautiful, her dress is nearly finished, I am only left to make her shoes and her pale, curly wig to complete her look.
Of course I will take some better pictures of her when she is done, I just love to do this quick spontaneous shots, sometimes the doll looks better on the pictures that I don't spend too much time on then ones that take nearly half the day.

Mystery girl

So I made a wig for her, it is very silky, long and beautiful angora goat's hair and I love the way it looks and feels.
I will be making a second wig for her, and her character is still a mystery :)

Hello everyone,
I am sorry you haven't heard from me for a while, I've been away for the whole month, spent some time in Ukraine with my dear family. I had a great time but am happy to be back.

So before I left I had started to work on a new girl, and now I've put her together and here is what I have so far :

She is from the same face mold as my little red riding hood, but you can see how different she looks with a little touch of a brush and an extra paint.
I had in mind to make a Victorian style doll, this type of a face reminds me of the doll faces they made back then, but now that I've painted her she looks almost like a little gypsy girl from one of the John W Godward's paintings (one of my favorite by the way), so now I will have to stare at her for a while and imagine her in both styles, maybe play with some hair and fabrics.
