I am in a doll group that is w-a-a-a-y off center called MRSBO. All of the dolls we create are dark in nature (of course). I had asked if any members were interested in a doll swap and got four of us involved.
Tomorrow is the deadline and I finished mine today :::the queen of procrastination sez proudly::: I plan on creating a similar one for sale but for now here is "Surly Shirley". My apologies to any Shirley's out there! Behind her back is a poor teddy bear that she garroted.
She stands about 9" tall and is Aves paper maché over a wire & foil armature with a styro ball head. A smoother finish of paperclay on top. Her skirt is fabric, her headband is baby ricrac and her shoelaces are made of button/craft thread and are actually threaded on the boots. The teddy bear that you can't see is polymer.
