I've mentioned it numerous times, so pardon me if you've heard it before, but I am a big fat horror fan. And this gal? The Bride. Well, I love her to bits. I'm well chuffed with this project because it is a bit Frankensteinien itself, hobbled together from this and that, put together using things already in my stash.
The head was gifted to me a couple of years ago. She's been sitting around waiting for something to happen (like sooo much stuff in my stash). Maybe it's the recent Halloween brain, but the other night I caught sight of her and knew what she was going to become.
The lips were darkened and reshaped just a bit, as were the eyes. And I couldn't forget those amazing eyebrows!
For her hair, once again I just used what was in my stash. The bulk of it is fly fishing fur, with black and white raw wool to fill it out. I know those streaks should be a little more wavy, but I'm ok with them as they are... for now.
Finally, her clothes are just strips of tea stained cross stitch canvas. Easy peasy!
Now, I know she's not a perfect match to Elsa Lanchester's 'Bride', but given that I'm not a doll recon artist and that she is a bit of a Frankenstein's monster made with scraps, I'm quite proud to tuck her in with my collection weird and wonderful things.
P.S. Hope you have a gorgeous day. I love you to bits.
