A Chorus Line

Well not really, but the picture was fun.

I've been hard at work on a doll commission.  Finished the dolls themselves, now to make their dresses.  They're wedding dolls, you see.  To be carried by the nine little girls attendant in a wedding this coming December.  They're also to serve as Church Dolls, given that the wedding is a Catholic one and the mass is lengthy and little girls might be angelic, but they're not likely angels.  :~)






I've made an extra one for the bride...her dress will be different, of course. 

In the commission deal with the groom's mom, I asked for: eye color, hair color, and a one word description of each little girl's personality.  So it was a lot of fun to paint expressions to try and reflect "shy, bold, outgoing, sweet, smart" etc.  The dresses will all be the same, but I'm hoping I hit the mark on the little girls' basic likenesses.  One more round of pictures once they're dressed.

Cheers!

    1. Isn't this a great idea? The lady was referred to me at the Aug. doll show...said she attended a wedding when she was young in which this idea was used. Said she still had the doll given to her then. I really hope these little girls will enjoy their dolls for years to come.

  8. I love the chorus line, and what a great idea, because we do know that little angels have little devils sitting on their shoulders.
    but you are busy.
