What?? No, no, no! Not for me, silly. For my Bearded Lady doll. Sheesh!
Our art doll group, ADA (Art Doll Artists), is sponsoring a Spring Challenge with the theme Vintage Circus / Sideshow. I'm participating and chose to create a bearded lady. I had sculpted a head more than a year ago that I intended to use for that very purpose so it was high time I got busy on bringing her to life.
I started with just a head. I gave her some make-up and a mustache and a goatee.
I wasn't feeling the goatee after staring at her for a few days so I went with a full beard instead. Now I'm happier. :)
I gave her a cloth body with movable arms. Now I just have to sculpt some hands and feet for her. Then I get to do all of the really fun stuff... wigging and costuming. I'm really liking her so far.
In other news, I made another dress form. Man, they are so fun to make. If you click on the photos, you can see them larger. This one is in shades of Yellow, Orange, Red and Cream. It kind of has a Bohemian feel to it, I think. I listed it in my Etsy Shop today.
Love, Love, Love! If I do say so myself. :)
If you were to create a doll in the Vintage Circus / Sideshow theme, which character would you choose?
