Alice at Last!
Today is reveal day for the 2nd Annual ADO blog event...Hurray! The challenge this year was to make a character from "Alice in Wonderland" and if you are a regular reader of my blog, you know what an Alice fan I am! This was a challenge I couldn't refuse. I did reveal a few WIP pictures of my Alice in earlier posts here and here , but now it's time to see the complete finished product... so Viola!
My Alice has cloth skin over cloth and wire armature, painted shoes, Lots of pintucks in her clothes, and mohair curls. Chessie is made from a felted sweater and has an embroidered face.
So what do you think?
This Alice has been sold, but I'm planning a dark version later this month so keep watching to see how she progresses. I also have plans for a White Queen, but for the moment she's still "percolating" in my head.
On July 9th you can click this link and find a list of participants in the blog challenge. Go take a peek at some of their wonderful dolls...you'll be amazed at what you find...just don't fall down a rabbit hole!
