Just a short post today. I wanted to show you 2 new Candlestick Diva Dolls I made a month ago, and were already sold!
For some reason, they both have horned headdresses -- not planned. (Could make a rude joke here, but will resist the urge.....)
When making these Candlestick dolls, I don't do a lot of planning. It just comes down to fabric & colors I like. It's truly spontaneous and improvised. About half way through, I jot down a little sketch, but mostly it's experimenting with the fabrics & trims.
Here's "Circus Diva" all in red.
(That's a plastic Christmas ornament in her hand.)
And, here's "Golden Idol Diva". I used Indian fabric & trim, and a lot of little metal filigree pieces I had left over from when I made jewelry for Broadway shows. (Doesn't she remind you of some character from "Star Wars"??)
That's all for now. I'm working on another 18th Century lady bust. Stayed tuned.
