WIP: The Body in Question.

Today was a big day for Miss R White.
(Oh, I just realised this was a big day for me and the blog, too!
This was my hundredth post!)

Today, she got her body.

Not a try-out.  Not a temporary fit.
Her actual body and limbs and paws.

She has soft sculpted knees and ankles,
a moveable elbow and shoulder joints using the brass loops.

I had to do some re-constructive surgery.
The breastplate was too long 
and too square and felt really intrusive.
So I cut it back and smoothed it out with a soft curve.
It looks and feels better.
The whole process was traumatic for both of us
and neither Miss White nor I want to talk about it...

It's all better now.
She looks happy and she sits prettily 
and I think she deserves some nice new clothes.

 I'll start with some pretty drawers and
maybe a petticoat and I might go crazy 
and make her some stockings.

To see Miss R White from the beginning,
the story starts here.

  1. She's adorable. I think stockings are in order.

    1. Thank you, Rosemary! I'm thinking blue striped ones, like Alice in Wonderland.

  2. WOW, really there are very few other words to describe this. You are an incredibly talented lady. I am seriously in awe. *newest follower too!

    1. Hi there! And thank you for the follow! Every new follower is an excitement and I still grab Hubby and pull him over to the screen to see.

      Thank you for the lovely comment. Miss R White has been a very sweet natured doll to work with. So far, no tantrums and no setbacka and even the alterations I've had to make have gone without incident. I hoping my luck holds!

  3. Blue striped stockings would be perfect. I love her:)

    1. Wouldn't they, though? I'm wondering if I can print stripes onto T-shirt fabric with the printer. Or maybe use painter's tape and and paint them, because I've had no luck trying to find the right material.

      So far, she's been a sweetheart; apart from having to re-sew an arm this morning because it was almost twice as fat as the other. I don't know how I missed that first time round.

  4. Miss R White is looking adorable. I can't wait to see her dressed :)


    1. Thank you, Dee. Yes, I'm getting a little impatient for that myself!

  5. Rhissanna, I'm thoroughly enjoying the progress of Miss White and your commentary as well. Your blog is very inspiring! Now I want to get my clay and scissors out. Congratulations to you for all your fine creativity!

    1. Oh! See, I'd love to see a Peet and Buttercup! They'd be lovely needle-felted, or sculpted and maybe flocked with fluffy mohair. And thank you for your sweet and lovely comment. I'm glad you've enjoyed Miss White's journey!


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