A few weeks ago I posted an in-progress photo of a custom order I've been working on; it was commissioned by the lovely Ms. Kelly. Kelly asked for a self-portrait figurine in black with a Victorian costume, and I absolutely loved making her.
I also gave her a deeply pleated skirt and a five-piece corset:
And of course, a ragged little parasol for all that melancholy wandering about in the rain so de-rigeur for Victorian ladies (well probably not really because they were always cooped up at home with the vapours, but that's how I like to imagine them ...)
Here is the original Kelly:
I've also added two more 3-D illustrations to the shop. These were a lot of fun to make, and nice also because they don't take nearly as long as a doll, so I get to see the results more quickly. I'll be offering them as custom orders later this week.
And finally, after marking over 100 papers in two weeks, I am finished my teaching contract!! I am officially unemployed, which is both scary and exciting. The dolls are coming!
