I wanted to continue on with my Alice in wonderland themed dolls and had a vision for my version of the caterpillar. In the end, the doll took a slightly different turn than my original sketch/idea however sometimes I just start with a basic idea and let them guide me where they want to go. I can still, however see the caterpillar influence. I am very happy with how she turned out.
She is sculpted using cernit clay. Her hair is alpaca hair that was hand dyed green. This was not done by me but by the owner of the small farm that I purchased from. She is painted in acrylics, and sealed with a varnish for color protection.
For more of my art dolls please visit my art page. I post daily updates, and works in progress. I hope to continue with my Alice in wonderland theme. I have some visions for a mad hatter, white rabbit and maybe even a tweedle dee/tweedle dum. You can also view my alice, cheshire cat and queen of hearts there as well.
She has been sold and is currently on a long journey to the UK. 🙂
After creating my Alice and Queen of Hearts dolls, I decided to continue on with the Alice in wonderland theme. Cheshire cat is one of my favorite characters and since I just finished working on a faun inspired doll, I decided to experiment more with the idea of humans with animal features. I loved sculpting the hooves on my previous faun doll so I knew I definitely wanted to give this one little cat feet with tiny sharp claws. So far, I think she is one of my favorites that I have created.
I have plans to eventually create more Alice themed dolls. Someone recently suggested the Mad Hatter and Tweedle Dee and Tweedle dum. I also have an idea for a caterpillar girl that I really hope to do soon.

My newest sculpts inspired by Alice in Wonderland. They were both hand sculpted using Cernit doll clay over strong wire armatures, hand painted in acrylics and varnished for color protection. Both have been sold.
You can follow my art dolls, costumes and works in progress on my art page.
I plan to make some more Alice inspired dolls soon. For now here is the Queen of Hearts and Alice.
I am currently working on some new pieces.
My two polymer sculpts are both inspired by Alice in wonderland and my stuffed doll is somewhat inspired by my favorite character Tira from Soul Caliber.
Please follow my art page for more updates. I have lots of new doll ideas that I will be working on. I will be sharing my progress as they are painted and brought to life!
This will be my last soft body doll for a little while. I will be starting back up on my full polymer clay sculpts.
Alice has been sold! You can follow my art page for more doll updates as well as my costumes.
I am working on some new chokers to sell at an upcoming steampunk festival in November. Until then I will be listing them in my Etsy shop. They are all OOAK, handmade chokers with double interfacing for extra strength. They have grommets in the back so they can corset to fit a variety of neck sizes.
