Princess Lysandra, the Caterpillar

The infant Princess Lysandra, darling of the Faerie Court. In some ways, she is the inspiration for the whole project. It occurred to me that if Fairies look like butterflies, shouldn't baby fairies be caterpillars?


The Princess is a Kelly doll. Her insect, obviously, is the caterpillar. Her segmented hind quarters, seen below, is permanent, but flexible; made of nylon, accented with dimensional fabric paint.
She also received a costume, consisting of a collar, chiffon wrap skirt, and circlet. Her eyes and lips were painted to match her mother. Completed 2007
