Just finished another doll this morning. This is Cecelia, made from craft/robe velour (I don't remember which). Her face is painted in acrylics, and her hair is bulky wool yarn, sewing in place. Her clothing is removable. She stands about 13 inches tall.

This year's Independence Day makes me nervous. Oregon has just reopened, and hoards of tourists are flocking to the Coast - some vaccinated, some not. Many not wearing masks. Many making risky decisions, impaired, driving, fireworks in dry areas, etc.
Please, let's just be safe this year.

Before my last two completed dolls, I experimented with a new doll body. Trying to get the size and shape I wanted, I made three stuffed bodies.
I ladder stitched all three around the waist for a couple reasons (that I can't really remember now). It may have been to round them out a bit more, and in #1's case, shorten her a bit. Maybe all three needed to be shortened, but I won't know until I sew and stuff another to see what I was thinking at the time.
All three have had paperclay added to their heads, which was my intention from the start.
Since I don't really throw anything away, my plans for these prototypes are:
To make #1 into a Day of the Dead character
To make #2 into a character of some sort
To make #3 into an Izannah-style doll

So I decided to do this, and though that another Pumpkinhead doll would be perfect. I submitted her photo today, and she may or may not be accepted for the September issue featuring these seasonal dolls. But it was fun anyway.
