Hi everyone! This is my first post here....(waving) Here is my latest one of a kind artdoll! She was handsculpted with Prosculpt Polymer clay (like all of my pieces) without the use of any molds whatsoever. Her wings were inspired by AeroNumi's wonderful wings..... Big Hugs and big thank you AeroNumi for allowing me to use your wonderful imagination and artistry into my piece. blessings, carla
2007. Mechanical Doll Costume. Simplicity Pattern Corset. Steel boned. Skirt comprised of underskirt, butt pillow, and two over skirts. Shirt same design as Han Solo Shirt. Mechanical Key made from metal and a mini cordless disco ball motor and attached to back by way of leather harness. Prosthetic nose and makeup done by the Baron. [link]
The top kimono is made from silver satin upholstery fabric, cut and constructed like a traditional kimono except for the body being a single piece of material. The painting was done by hand with black jaquard paint, watered down and applied with a sumi brush. The painting was done entirely freehand, following a dark-to-light, asymmetrical flow often seen in traditional kimono decoration. The artwork is steampunk-inspired, with an abstract water design out of which a giant octopus is grabbing an airship. Tiny crew on the deck of the ship are attempting to fight off the tentacle.
The under kimono is constructed in the same manner as the silver kimono, but out of a cranberry-colored linen look fabric.
