A friend of mine asked me to make her a doll that was inspired by her wedding. Her colors are very reminiscent of Halloween; black, white, orange and purple. She sent me a picture of a Blackeyed Suzie doll. I love the work of this artist, but our styles are really different. She told me she would be wearing a mini top hat, and that she wanted the doll to be holding an umbrella or bird cage. She likes the Gothic look. My cell phone pictures are very poor, but they give you an idea of what she looks like.
I used feathers for her hair. I am pleased with the effect. The bird cage is made from paper clips and clay.
