Sookie!

Firstly!

Sherry over at
Decorating with Cents
did a lovely photo session
of all the things I managed to cram into the box
for the giveaway she won.
Sherry is a real sweetheart
and does some of the most amazing things
with paint on glass.
Pop over and say Hi!

And,
thanks to all you
wonderful
helpful
supportive
people,
I finished Miss R White
 a week early!

I decided, what the heck,
and finished another doll as well!

I know!

This is for Aunt Linda.
Aunt Linda is Aunt Brenda's twin sister
and Aunt Brenda got a doll 
last year for her birthday.

A doll with clothes, obviously.
 I have no photos of the finished doll.
It was a deadline thing


Anyway.
You know how twins can be, right?
So, this year, Aunt Linda gets a doll.

She gets Sookie.


Sookie is a similar design,
with a soft sculpted face
and other soft sculpted
....uh...
features.


I've been looking at boudoir dolls
and rather fancied making some
fancy ladies who've led rather racy lives.


Sookie is a Saloon Gal.
She can sing;
 she can dance a little in those fancy boots.
She's got a couple of other talents...

(Hubby has already requested
a German Beer Garden girl.
Maybe I could go around the world,
French Can Can girls?
Belly Dancers?)


Sookie is all bows and ringlets
at the back.

 This is what Patti,
over at Ivy and Elephants
called a Butt Bow
It's a brilliant term!

She is wearing seamed stockings
and she has a laced corset
over her frothy tulle skirt
with  ribbons and roses.

The frothy red tulle adorning her derriere
comes from
 the lovely bundle of fabrics I won
in Teresa's Giveaway at
A Magical Whimsy .




All dressed up
she insists on going to the fair
 before being wrapped up
and delivered to Aunt Linda.



So that will be Sookie
and Miss R White 
going off tomorrow.
Wish them luck!



Why did I call her Sookie?

So I could say it like Bill in True Blood.
C'mon!
Say it with me.
Say it like Bill.
Say it like Sookie, saying it like Bill.

Sookeh!

    1. Thank you for popping over and hey! Happy Birthday! Isn't 'Uncharted 3' great? Like a film where you get to decide what happens next!

      As for the curls, I was given some doll wigs by a friend and thought I'd never use them. In the end, they inspired Miss Sookie here, as they have a lot of bounce in them. Like..uh..she does. Inspiration comes from the most unexpected places.

    1. Thank you, Carol! Sookie just sprang to life, she really was one of the easiest dolls I've ever put together. I really need to make another; maybe take my inspiration from the lace and pastel pinks things of the lovely things on your blog. White lace bloomers, pink boned corset, roses and pearls...

  11. I don't know what to say about Sookie other than she is very well executed! Her eyes are great.

    1. Thank you! The eyes were really what made her into Sookie. The head was originally a reject, because I didn't like the nose. SoI tried to give her big, expressive eyes to draw attention away from the misshapen nose.

  12. Oh! My! Sookie is a charmer! Love what you did with the red tulle. She is just gorgeous! Wow! You really do inspire me to get going with my doll making.

    1. The red tulle was a big part of Sookie's design, so I owe you a big thank you! And once I started to put her together, she happened very quickly and (almost) without hiccups.

      So, when do we start to see a doll, humm?

    1. *Blushes* Thank you so much. That's a really sweet thing to say. Sookie was a doll that pretty much made herself.

  14. Sookie has sass on her body part that rhymes. What a great sense of humor!
