“When her loved one tragically died several days before their wedding, she couldn’t bear the thought of living alone. The grief began to consume her and eventually she took her own life in hopes of being reunited with him. However, years went by and she searched and searched. To this day, she is frantically still searching among the dead for her long lost love.”
I decided to start on my halloween inspired dolls early this year, since I tend to wait until the last minute. “Lady in White” is now for sale in my Etsy shop.
She is approximately 19″ long and 11″ when seated
She is completely handmade without the use of any molds. She is constructed of Premier Air Dry Clay over a strong sturdy wire armature. She is sculpted, sanded, gessoed and then painted in acrylic paints and varnished with a light gloss varnish to protect her color.
Her arms, legs, hands, and feet are all ribbon jointed and lightly posable. Her head can very slightly move. Her hair is made of black viscose and is permanently styled and attached to her head. It has been adorned with gathered lace, white roses, pearls and a white skull. Her handmade dress is constructed of lace, satin, pearls and little white bows. Each pearl has been individually sewn onto her dress.
