Umbra - Captain of the Flying Dutchman

This image is created for the photocontest of Hasel's Aesthetics.

Right when I read about Hasel's contest, I had plans of using an old boat I had as a child. This boat was from the Zuiderzee Museum, made of a typical Dutch wooden shoe. And what better boat to use to portait the Flying DUTCHman? :D
Sadly, I couldn't find this boat anywhere! So I had to make one myself, from the memories I had of the boat (I didn't have any references). I made the boat and mast out of paper maché. The sail and mast are different from the original boat. I thought this would look better for the overall photo and position of the doll.
Besides the boat, I also made Umbra's outfit + hat, and did her face-up myself.

The image is two images put together in a photo editing program, with some obvious extra editing. :p At first I planned to take the boat to the water to take the photograph, but due my limited health and energy, plus the fact that a bit transparent layer would make a more ghostly effect, I decided to take two seperate pictures and put them together like this.

Umbra is my Soom Ai human.
