New Doll

This doll was quite a challenge. I really wanted to make her, but she really didn’t want to be made! I tried two bases before this one, and both attempts were awful. The base I chose is a little too happy, but I did my best. I like how the dress turned out, even if it doesn’t really work practially. It fits the description. The doll is another character from the book Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke. Her name is Maria Absalom and she has been dead for a while. She is summoned by Jonathan Strange in a dream and this is the way she appears to him, briefly. The diamonds on her skirt are the ones that her father conned the King of Denmark out of. I like her red hair especially. I think it turned out better than I could have hoped! In general I’m pleased with her.
