And yes,
my hands were frozen
taking these pictures.

    1. Thank you, Laura! Yes, I somewhat indulged myself with the steampunk riding jacket, with epaulettes, buttoned vent, braid and lace, pocket, corset closure and full lining. I want one, too!

  2. You've been busy making a dark-haired Alice and a Steampunk Alice! Definitely time well spent because they're both lovely!

    1. Aww, thank you, Lexa. It's been a lovely time; outside it's bitter cold but inside I'm making dolls. I just want it to dry up so I can take better photographs.

    1. Thank you! Sat in the cosy warm, fiddling with clay and paint and pretty ribbons, it's like a perpetual kindergarten in here. Doesn't feel like busy at all.

    1. Thanks so much, Summer. I'm considering hunting down a pair of striped tights for myself. The jacket kinda became a project! How much stuff could I put onto it: buttons, lacing, lace, braids, pockets, epaulettes, cuffs...

    1. Aww, Stacy! Thank you so much! Here's to tooting horns! (I can say that, can't I? Sounds a bit suggestive...)

    2. Keep tooting girl ;o) I will be right behind you ;o)

  12. Hey Rhissanna,

    What a doll! And so is Alice. If only I could figure out what Steampunk meant. I shall now shamelessly promote this. I'm good like that.

    1. You wicked tease! And thank you! As for steampunk, imagine Queen Victoria was an engineer who married a vampire and kept an ancient Egyptian computer in the Crystal Palace, and you pretty much have the genre wrapped up.

    2. Heh! Thank you, oh Magic Love Crow!

  13. Great outfit! I really liked awake dark haired Alice in your previous post - her face is just amazing.

    1. Thank you! It's been fun working on both of them and seeing them come to life.

  14. How beautiful! Your dolls and clothing are the finest I've ever seen. I love this outfit that Alice is sporting. Fabulous!!

    Happy Valentines Day Rhissanna!

    1. Happy Valentine's Day to you too, Edie Marie! And that's a very sweet thing for you to say. I have to admit, I did enjoy making the jacket. I think I'll try another one, in red.

  15. Love the outfit specially the jacket...and of course the stripey stockings:)

    1. Oooh, yes! I wish I was brave enough to wear stripy stockings! And thank you very much. The jacket was such fun to make, adding on lots of detail. Of course, because it's black on black, none of it really shows in the photographs!

  16. She is lovely and the black colour for her costume works very well

    1. Thank you, Shashi! I thought it might be nice to see Steampunk done in black instead of brown, to go with her yellow hair.

  17. I can't get enough of that glorious dress. I bet Alice shares my thoughts. She looks delightful!

    1. Aww! Thank you, Magaly. I have to admit, I do have jacket envy here! Ditto the silver grey tutu.

  18. Added a follow to your site, Rhissanna. Surprised I hadn't already done that. There will be a slight delay with this week's story-edit as I'm getting ready for the Vampire Soiree Bloghop. Also, Mabel's re-edit-edit is ALMOST done and the new thing is...halfish done and sent to you? Let me know what you think when you get a chance?

    1. Thank you, Mr N. I'm hoping to join in the blog hop, too, once I get myself organised, so a delay in edit-re-edit is fine.

  19. Oh honey, I LOVE this Steampunk Alice. If I could create such beautiful dolls, I would constantly be doing shameless self promotions. Outstanding! Mina

    1. Thank you so much, Mina! I'm going to give her one of your wonderful Steampunky brass keys on a ribbon around her neck, as I think they're a better match than the silver. I was so thrilled to get them!

Thank you all for the wonderful and supportive things you say! I'm thrilled to read them and I reply to each one.
