New WIP's

Jayn and I are enthralled by the Sisters Grimm series, a combination of two of our favorite genres - fractured fairy tales and mysteries. Inspired by the recent Doll Street Dreamers challenge to create Discworld characters, the gallery of which is now posted here, we have decided to embark on a long term project to create dolls for all the characters.

These will be for our own play and enjoyment. The first ones are going to be the sisters themselves, almost 12 year old Sabrina and 7 year old Daphne. Their just begun polymer clay heads still look very odd without irises or eyelids, but they are going to be fun. This is a project that will conceivably take years. There are hundreds of fairytale characters and creatures representing folklore, myth, and literature from Shakespeare to Dickens to Baum. And a few humans. Jayn wants to make dioramas also.
As well as the Grimm project, I have been busily beading a batch of Dream Star dolls and a Dream Doll, mostly made from vintage cottons. These happy ladies should be finished in another couple of weeks and will be available on Etsy at that time.
