She knows if you've been bad or good

Progress on my
wicked boudoir doll. 

More of the boots,
now with faux stockings.



The heels have a
cocktail stick armature
with paperclay 
and more paperclay for the sole.
I was worried about it cracking 
or flexing away from the fabric
but it all seems pretty secure.


Now she has hair 
(dirty blonde!)
and a face
and a name.
Melinda.

You'll address her as Mistress, however.



The stockings are made from tulle
with  seams at the back.
They'll have suspenders 
(Garter belt?)
and little garters.


I've finally worked out how to make the face 
with no center seam over the mouth,
which does make the lips easier to paint.



And I'd better get back to work
or I'm going to be in trouble.

    1. Oh, Mandy, thank you so much! She looked pretty awful before she got some hair and I was thinking I might have to re-make the head. So I'm really glad you like her! Apparently, blonde hair fixes everything.

      Her kinky boots were a giggle to make. I'm going to have make some more!

    1. Thank you so much! As it is, I have very little control over who my dolls become. They usually have ideas of their own.

    1. Yes, indeed! Every morning she demands to know where her outfit is and why I haven't finished it yet. So bossy, some dolls!

    1. I think what happens is that I do what I'm told and hurry up and get her finished! Or I'll be in trouble!

    1. Thank you, Shashi! Now I don't have to paint lips over a seam, I'm a lot happier.

    1. Happy Birthday! And I think is means, you can't sit down until you've done some moving around. Stir well before use. :))
