Well as most of you know I've been pretty busy with my mom lately. I'm very busy this week as well, but with many other things. Some of the fun stuff I've been doing recently (okay within the past two months!) are pretty neat.
First up, my youngest daughter Abby, came to me a few months ago with one of those "spur of the moment" Meri can you help me with something I volunteered for? She was involved in an "anime" group at school and one of their members was to attend Comi-Con which would be at the end of May here in Phoenix and she volunteered to make the shorts for the costume.. My brain registered shorts as being basic with an elastic waist.......easy peasy.........right? Wrong! After saying yes to helping her I was then presented with this sketch of what the costume needed to be:
|Pretty cool even after all|
the headaches I went
through creating these
shorts for a ghost.
|Hubby was Dr. Who and Abby went|
as one of the DC comic villains
As I've mentioned before, I'm also participating in a "round robin" doll exchange with my local group of art gals (we call ourselves "Arizona Showgirls") and we meet each month to exchange dolls amongst ourselves to add our personal touch to. Each lady (there are 8 of us) start an art doll of some sort, and they each get passed around between us and we add a bit of personality to them. At the end of 8 months we should each have a very unique doll that has been added to by everyone in the group. This was my last months doll that I worked on, and this is this months doll. This doll has been said to be a world traveler/Dr. Who type character. I added legs that another gal started but couldn't figure out how to attach. This other gal also made a hat for this doll, but it wouldn't stay on the head, so I put in "hair" made of wire. I also created a small scarf that is reminiscent of Dr. Who's scarf from the 70's. Here's my input on the doll.
|Finished look of what|
I added to this doll.
|Wire hair that others can add fun things to the hairs with|
jump rings, for even more decor to.
|The Dr. Who-ish type scarf.|
|Extremely long, articulated, legs.|
|"Buckled" knees.......tee hee!|
See ya soon!
