Pretty, pretty, pretty... she looks really professional!

Is that a small coffin lurking in the background?

oh my goddess, you are Both sew-magical! har har
the act of creating anything is so important & helpful to our internal workings, the artists are the true magicians of the world.

Just for the record, I cannot wait to see the two dolls paired together. Too cute!

What K and MistressMousey said. :)

Have you put in rainbow streaks in her hair? Fine tip paint pens might work; just a thought. :)

I love my Doll. I really really love my Doll. Malena is the coolest , most magic, wonderful friend ever! I nearly cried when she sent me the pictures.

For the record when we spoke this morning and compared how many hours the Doll took, and how many hours I spent on the You-know-what for the pillow, they were, uh, about the same.

Amazing women, Malena.

Inspired by my great pillow sucess, I went back to the fabric store and bought MORE fabric to make MORE pillowcases . When the sales women stopped laughing, she took me to the pattern area and showed me a PURSE pattern and said that it was so easy even I could make it.

I can make Malena a Tote-thing for her Birthday, which is, thanks be, in not until June.

Yes to more photos - the doll is just awesome, love the sandals and toenails too! I haven't sewn since my kids grew out of their dolls. Malena, I bet your baby bean has a wonderful collection! And Lorraine is beginning one!

Yes, next I will do the Malena doll. I started painting the face and my daughter said, "ah, Mom you went a little over board on the eye make-up don't you think?" Hee hee. I made the Malena doll a little witch hat too. Don't we all dream of being princesses. That's prince to you Danth..hee hee

Princesses? Nah, GODDESSES! ::snicker::

How old is your baby bean? She sounds like my daughter.

that doll looks AWESOME!

i love the purple dots around the corset -- i just bought some black - with - purple - polka dots material to make my next "practice" corset. So i had to smile when i saw those dots!

I just saw the funkiest thing. Goth dress-up paper dolls - with corset, fishnets, flowing skirt and stick-on spiderweb tattoo... I couldn't buy one though - no cash, but I may have to go back and get one later.

Or I could draw my own, which would be cheaper!

Vanda, my daughter is 12. We should have them email back and forth.

Nora, I want a link to your spider outfit! It was soooooooooo fabulous.

Danth, you can borrow a corset if you need to.

K, goth paper dolls??? where?!

Ariandalen, Yes, I did streak the hair with sharpies. Great idea, thank you!

More photos to come! HI Mimi Ko! I'm not ignoring you, I'm just busy.

Goddesses UNITE! no, not untie, UNITE!

Goth paper dolls - not on the net, alas, at least I don't think so. In a card shop in Edinburgh.

SO CUTE!!! I cannot resist it; I surrender.

Malena :: If you offer to loan me much more stuff I'm going to be walking around Balticon as mini-Malena! I'd love to borrow a corset, thank you.

Lorraine :: I have a birthday present for you but I was a bad LaMie this weekend and did not get it ready for shipping, so it may be a bit late!
