New Shop Order: Betty Botter

I got this cute doll from Candydude's Shop at Eden Enchanted. It is inspired by this nursery rhyme:

Betty Botter bought some butter,
But, she said, the butter's bitter;
If I put it in my batter
It will make my batter bitter,
But a bit of better butter
Will make my batter better.
So she bought a bit of butter
Better than her bitter butter,
And she put it in her batter
And the batter was not bitter.
So 'twas better Betty Botter bought a bit of better butter.

Classic Teela, the Warrior Goddess!

I decided to make a doll of Teela! It's based on the design of the classic action figure. I like how she turned out, but the staff is still too short! Maybe I'll fix it at some point!

New Shop Order: Polly Flinders

I ordered this adorable doll from Hollay's Shop at Eden Enchanted. I asked for a doll inspired by this nursery rhyme:

Little Polly Flinders
Sat among the cinders,
Warming her pretty little toes;
Her mother came and caught her,
And scolded her little daughter
For spoiling her nice new clothes.

New Shop Order: Mother Hubbard

I got this great shop order from Dream_Fox's shop at Eden Enchanted. I asked for a doll inspired by this nursery rhyme and this is the great doll she made for me!

Old Mother Hubbard
Went to the cupboard,
To give her poor dog a bone;
When she came there
The cupboard was bare,
And so the poor dog had none.

She went to the baker's
To buy him some bread;
When she came back
The dog was dead.

She went to the undertaker's
To buy him a coffin;
When she came back
The dog was laughing.

She took a clean dish
To get him some tripe;
When she came back
He was smoking his pipe.

She went to the alehouse
To get him some beer;
When she came back
The dog sat in a chair.

She went to the barber's
To buy him a wig;
When she came back
He was dancing a jig.

She went to the seamstress
To buy him some linen;
When she came back
The dog was spinning.

The dame made a curtsy,
The dog made a bow;
The dame said, "Your servant,"
The dog said, "Bow-wow."

New Doll: Headaches Suck

I've been working on this doll for a while. It's me when my headache is bad. And Michael suggested band-aids, so I added those. I think she's cute, but she kinda makes me sad too.

New Dolls and a Cricket!

Today I have several new dolls (I was on a fashion kick today) and some new pixel art! The first two dolls are both Lois Lane wearing two of the many wedding dresses that she has worn in comic books through the years! I like both and think the dolls, particularly the 1960's one (the first one) turned out very well. The third doll is a Chanel dress that I really like. I think it turned out pretty well. The fourth is a fabulous Jill Sander dress that I really really want. It's gorgeous and I really wish I could afford it! I like the doll. It really does resemble the dress. Then there is a doll of a great Missoni dress. I like the blue and gold combination, it looks good. The last fashion doll (I told you I was on a fashion kick tonight) is a great top and skirt from Proenza Schouler. My last doll today is a design that I did for a children's production of Love's Labour's Lost that I costumed a few years ago. It is the princess. Finally I have some pixel art! It's Charlie from Cricket Magazine! Isn't he cute?

New Dolls!

Several new dolls today. The first is a dress by Akris. I like the textures on it. The second doll is Azaryun, the Moroccan princess from The Seven Wise Princesses. I really like how she turned out! She's so pretty! The third doll is Ceridwen, a role playing character of mine from a very short-lived Alternity game. I really like her. Her outfit is great. The fourth doll is Jaquenetta from Love's Labours Lost by William Shakespeare. It's a design I created for a children's production of the play a few years ago. The last doll is me! I actually own the cute outfit (I made it myself). I really like how she turned out. It's my first self-portrait doll that has hair that actually resembles mine!

New Dolls!

A few new dolls today! The first is Briar Rose, from the fairy tale "Sleeping Beauty". The second one is another Glinda from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum. I like her bodice and the stars on her skirt. The third one is Kirsten from Meet Kirsten from the "American Girls Collection". The fourth doll is Olivia from Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare. I was experimenting with a new sitting base. I'm not quite sure about it, but I don't think it's awful. The last two dolls are Zikazi and Zanyana from an African fairy tale called "Makanda Mahlanu". I like how they turned out! The jewelry turned out well.

Indian Head Massage

Today I got an Indian Head Massage (or Ayurvedic Massage). It felt really really good. You sit up in a chair and the person doing it carefully massages your shoulders, neck, head and face in somewhat rythmic almost ritualistic motions. It was really relaxing. My headache is better too (not gone, I would be calling everyone I know and dancing on the moon if that happened, but better). The whole experience was really interesting. I'm going back for another one in a few weeks. I wish I could learn how to do it and teach Michael how so that we could give them to each other frequently. I wonder where you can learn how? I should remember to ask next time.

Four new dolls today. The first is Barbara Gordon as Batgirl! I like how the cowl and mask turned out. The second doll is Dorothy in her blue and white gingham dress from W. W. Denslow's illustrations to the first edition of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. The third doll is Shiela from the old "Dungeons and Dragons" cartoon. She was my favorite character. I think the doll turned out pretty well. I like her boots. The last doll is wearing a Versace evening gown. I think the gown is really interesting, so I wanted to doll it.

Interesting Costumes

Ok, I admit, I was in a very strange mood tonight. I blame the dancing purple dots. Anyway, the first doll is Jasmine. I know, it's weird. I found a picture of a really cute pre-school toy with plastic figures of all the disney princesses dressed up as ballerinas and I just had to doll one of them. Since I already had a doll with Jasmine hair, I did her. I think she's cute. The second one is Pocahontas in a swimsuit. Sort of. It's from a magazine picture. Like I said, weird mood. The last doll is actually one I like a lot. It's an Alexander McQueen dress (why I keep doing McQueen stuff I don't know), but I liked it a lot. I wouldn't wear it, but it's pretty. I like the base a lot. It doesn't force me to make hair, which I'm not very good at. I wasn't up to hair tonight.

Literary Dolls

A few new dolls today! The first is Alice from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. The second is Alice from the 1999 live action movie "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland". The third is Dolly Oblonsky from Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy. I love her dress. I really want to do a doll of Kitty, but she has been harder than Anna or Dolly, so it may be a while. The fourth is Princess Furaq of India from The Seven Wise Princesses (see my current contest for more about her or the book). Black is hard for me, but I'm pleased with the result! The fifth is a rather unusual design for Titania from A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare that I saw in a drawing. I think it's cute. The last is another mini Barbie doll.

New Dolls!

Several new dolls today! The first is Alice from American McGee's game, but she's awfully cute for the darkness of the game. Oh well. The second is Amneris in her opening costume from the musical "Aida". I love this outfit and an relatively pleased with the doll. The third doll is wearing a gown from the 16th century that might have been worn by a woman in Bologna. I copied it from a very old color plate. The fourth doll is Katy Keene! Katy Keene, the Pin-Up Queen was a character in comics from the company that wrote Archie, but not in Archie's world. She was a fashion model and usually had a paper doll in her magazines. There were lots of contests to get a fashion design published in one of Katy's magazines. Some of the fan designs were pretty good. Anyway, I always loved Katy and so I made this doll of her in one of her swimsuits from a 1950's paper doll of her. I think she turned out pretty well. Then I have a doll of Sarah from the movie "A Kid in King Arthur's Court", which wasn't a very good movie, but had some really pretty costumes. I like her blue dress better, but had more pictures of this one. I like her hair, but not the veil. The last is another mini Barbie doll.
