The Faerie Queen

The mysterious Queen of the Faerie Court. Her Insect inspiration is a Spanish Lacewing butterfly.

She was a Princess of Ancient Greece Barbie. I chose her for her hair-style and eyes, both of which are kept. I gave her a new lipstick color, new eye color, and her costume and wings. Her dress is made out of silk flower petals and lace. Jewelry, Crown and accents are hematite, crystal beads and wire. Her wings are clear plastic, covered on the front with "scales" cut from feathers, colored with Sharpie on the back for depth of color. They are mounted to her back with wire, so they are slightly moveable. Completed 2006.
