Welcome to another chapter of
I wanted to make a Mina Harker
as a companion piece to my
And when I say Mina Harker,
I don't mean this one,
|(although I will make her one day, complete with red dress)|
I mean this one
|(Steampunk style, with hat!)|
So, I got out my paperclay and started sculpting.
And I looked at the head sculpt closely and thought,
'This isn't Mina. This looks like Claudia.'
From Interview with the Vampire.
All that pout and wickedness, right?
So, I did a wig try-on.
and a rough sketch on the raw, dry clay.
Pale skin, red lips,
hectic cheeks, dark eyes.
I hope when I paint her
she keeps this vampiric glow.
There are a lot of references to dolls
in the book/film.
Although it's the first time I've seen a doll collection
used to hide a body.
As Lestat and Louie
dress her up like a doll,
I'll be putting Claudia into something very fancy.
Like this, maybe?
I hope she likes it.
I'm thinking of making her a coffin.
