NEW PUPPET DOLL IN PROGRESS

I'M WORKING ON A NEW DOLL, TITLED "TEATRO DE LOS MUERTOS" (THEATER OF THE DEAD). IT'S INSPIRED BY THE WONDERFUL WORK OF DOLL ARTIST NANCY WILEY.

HERE'S THE BASIC CATRINA BODY, WITH HEAD & ARMS PINNED ON, AND THE HAND-PAINTED BACKDROP FOR THE PUPPETS:


HERE, I'VE ADDED THE SKIRT WITH TRIMS. THE WRITING ON THE BACKDROP SAYS "LA GUERRA ENTRE EL BIEN Y EL MAL" (THE WAR BETWEEN GOOD AND EVIL), WHICH IS THE NAME OF THE PUPPET PLAY THE CATRINA IS PERFORMING.


THE LITTLE SKELETON PUPPETS ARE MADE OF WIRE & PAPER CLAY:


HERE'S THE BODICE & SLEEVES FINISHED:
