Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends south of the border where they are no doubt enjoying family and food and fun 🙂 May it be healthy and happy for you all!
I have just finished and listed a Skelita Monster High. In honour of the holidays, her name is Holly.
She wears a nod to the Nordic countries of Europe and their Christmas celebrations with an evergreen crown festooned with candles.
It gets better 🙂
Now it just needs some berries!
I gave Holly a couple of holly leaf and berry motifs on her ankle and her shin …
And here she is in full Christmas regalia!
Holly is currently available in my Etsy shop. Here’s a link:

Thanks for reading and Happy Holidays!

I’ve listed one more Skelita repaint and redress in honour of Halloween.
This ghoulish beauty is currently on offer in my Etsy shop. I don’t have in process pics of the painting progression, but you all have seen that a million times from me anyway, yes? Drop me a line if you would want more of that. This time though I took a few shots as I made her bow.
The violin itself is a cute wooden Christmas ornament that I tweaked the strings on, removed the hanger and added a chinrest. The bow I made from scratch.
First I carved and whittled down a piece of wood. The wood needed to be as wide as the width of the frog. Trying to attach tiny pieces of wood for the frog and the end of the bow would have been a waste of time. Nothing would have stayed and the moment you touched it, it would have fallen apart. So I started with a larger piece of wood (birch, I think, not balsa, too soft).
Here it is carved, but not sanded and of course not painted, and the violin, pre chinrest. I drilled holes for eventual stringing with the tiniest drill bit I could find.
Here it is with paint. I used a real bow for reference and tried to emulate what a real bow looks like.
And here it is “strung” I have glued the knots on both ends of by bow strings and when that’s dry I will trim the excess and varnish again. I will also add a little clear elastic loop to help Esmeralda hold her bow as she should.

She’s a virtuoso on the violin and has taken it with her into the afterlife. Here are some photos 🙂 Her dress has a faux suede bodice and pink sparkly and black mesh full skirt. The gown is accented with pink Swarovski pearl beads and black seed beads on the pink floss tie shoulder straps and two more pink Swarovski pearls and hand knotted thread loops as fasteners at the back.

Ikr!? Two posts in one day, lol!
I want to share my newest repaint and redressed girl, available in my Etsy Shop in the hopes that you love her so much, you must take her in 🙂
In honour of Halloween which (pardon the pun) is coming up soon, I present Moana.
She has Day of the Dead type shading and should fit right in with any Halloween display!
A happy Halloween and Fall season to you all 🙂
Thanks for reading!
