Here's my Hoffman Challenge entry. Polymer clay head with bead eyes, fabric and batting over a wire armature, wooden base. Probably a bit too wobbly for the travelling exhibit. I have got to find a happy medium between the easily molded wire I am currently using and the 14 gauge thick as coat hanger wire I tried before that killed my hands (even using pliers and a clamp). Maybe just more internal reinforcement is needed.
I called her "Journey". She has felt boots with attached charms, pantaloons, a dress, a sash of crocheted yarn with paper beads, a head dress and a coat embellished with padded, quilted, beaded shapes from the paisley fabric, yarn embroidery, beading and buttons. She wears bangles and rings, and pearl and chain necklace. She has gold tatoos on her face, and sports purple nail polish mixed by Jayn.
Sooner or later she will come home, and I will probably make a crystal staff for her to hold, and perhaps a bag full of trinkets and poems.
