|She's missing her right shoe, but I'll get to that in a minute.|
Ivy said she looks like Ann Estelle. I agree, if Ann Estelle were uglier.It wasn't intentional though. (The likeness nor the ugliness!)
|She's strung, so her arms, legs, and head are poseable.|
|That right hand is made to hold a pencil. I just need to make her one. She was modeled holding a piece of wire.|
She has some problems. For one, her right shoe broke and won't stay on. When I was getting ready to take her picture her shoe fell off twice. The second time around it must have gotten sucked into a black hole, because I can't find it anywhere! Ken and Fuzzy both helped me look. It's just gone.
|I used wire to form her legs and feet. You can see the edge of the wire in her foot here. The socks only come to the tops of her feet, because if they were on her foot too, her shoes would have to be so big that her feet would look huge.|
It's a shame too, because I was actually quite proud of her little Mary Jane shoes. The sole on the one that fell off was particularly good.
I made her to sit with her feet crossed, which they do quite well.She can sit other ways too though.
There was a bit of gluing involved in making that collar. It's pretty hard to find fabrics with prints that small anyway,and it would have been impossible to have found the right print to make the collar I wanted. So, I cut the selvage edge and glued it.
Her teeth are actually three dimensional. I was pleased with the way they turned out. I changed her lip colour several times though. I'm still not pleased with it, but nothing I tried looked right.
