Caliopsis, the name comes from a flower and when this doll was finished, that name leapt into my head and wouldn’t budge. It seemed perfect for her. An unusual name for an unusual doll :o)
She came about quickly, which is unusual for me. It was one of those projects that had already decided itself what it was going to look like and it was up to me to me to make it happen. It was almost like I was following her lead, she was in full control. I was just dong what she told me, lol! She’s not exactly what I had in mind to start with -although her hair is pretty close ;o) Her dress wound up being different than what I pictured, but I am pleased with the result.
I didn’t take too many process photos because she sort of happened fast, aand I didn’t pause much for photography, but here she is with her new unstyled as yet mohair and only part of her paint…
And that’s the only shot I took! I was on a roll and didn’t want to stop :o/
Anyway, here is the finished girl. She doesn’t much look like your typical Topper doll anymore and not to everyone’s taste I’m sure! But trust me when I tell you that it is an improvement over the paintless face and shortened natty hair I started with! At the end of the day I am happy with her :o)
She is one of a very small number of Mohair reroots I have done for Dawn. I have a couple of other ideas for Mohair girls though, so I expect to put out at least a couple more in the coming weeks :o)
Here’s the link to her auction: It runs ’til Sunday
Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for reading!
