Aya, the Dragonfly

So here we are. In the internet age.
Aya is here to welcome you to the cyber home of my custom creations.

Not the most perfect picture of my girl there, but enough to begin.

Aya is a member of my 12" Barbie-scale Faerie Court. Each doll in this (slowly) growing set is inspired by a different insect. Aya, the dragonfly, is the exotic governess and maid for the infant princess (under construction).

She received a face repaint/touch-up, with some body paint on the back. Her hair is original to the doll. Dress and shoes made out of silk leaves. Her wings are acetate with a front of painted silk chiffon. I'm not thrilled with the look of them, but not unhappy either. All four wings are poseable up and down. Completed Summer 2006

As I get the hang of this blogging thing, and get the time to take some good photos, more customs should be posted here. Enjoy!
