Forget Wordless Wednesday...it's dolly day...

Finally finished her.  I am pretty slow with all things doll and bear related.  But... I'm usually pretty happy with my results...so....that's a big plus in my book.















Decided to make her shoes the colour of the flowers on her dress fabric...it took a few tries and 3 coats to get the colour right.  She seemed pretty happy with them..



















.... Although, she did seem a bit reluctant to pose for some photos...



















But, then...it was like...."I'm ready for my close-up now Mr. DeMille"...






































Then...all of sudden she got cheeky and showed a bit of leg... woohooo,,,,,



















Embarrassed herself I think...hahhaha..



















...and soon....she was pooped.....




















Here are my gals for inspiration.... The dolls of Black Eyed Suzi.  I decided to make one for myself, even though I don't actually know her techniques... all I gleaned was from some of her photos of her own works in progress.  What fun it would be to spend a few hours with some of the well known doll makers....

In the meantime... I'll bumble along on my own and see what I come up with .... hence the BumbleVee.....

Aaaaah, she's superb - glamorous in a nonchalant kind of way. A touch world weary perhaps? She's so full of life and simply gorgeous. Love her beautiful mussy hair too.

Has she told you her name yet?

Keep bumbling along - as you say - just love what you come up with in your own way :D

Thanks for including links to other
doll making sites too - much appreciated.

I REALLY love this one! She really does look like an aging film star. Tragic.
