Elena's Icicle Wig

I made Elena a new wig - the "hair" and wig cap are made entirely of glass beads. This is sort of related to my "Snegurochka WIP" posts, since I originally bought the beads to do embroidery on the coat for that outfit. But, I have been having some problems breathing when I sew or work with fibers, so I am taking a break on it (might be permanent, might not, I don't know at this point). Anyways, I have all these beads, so I decided to try something new - I've always loved the looks of beaded things! So I am making Elena a beaded dress, and hopefully shoes, to go with this wig. It will be like a fantasy Snow Maiden thing when it's done. Of course, I will post more pictures when it is, but I just finished the wig a few minutes ago, so I wanted to share it with you! ^-^ Be warned, these photos are kind of too bright. I wanted to show how shiny and sparkly the beads are, so I took them in the sunlight…

This wig was really an experiment, to see if I could even make an all-beaded wig for a porcelain BJD. I tried looking up tutorials first, but I could only find beaded wigs for Barbies. I liked the looks of them, but the execution is totally different since Barbie doesn't need a wig cap! So I had to make it up as I went along. I'm pretty happy with the results, and will definitely make more for my other girls! I might tweak things a bit here and there, but basically, I am happy with things as they are, and it wasn't nearly so hard to do as I thought.

I am finally posting a couple of photos of my new porcelain BJD. Her name is Isabelle. She is 35cm tall, made by JRDolls. I have to say, although I love all my dolls a lot, she is definitely one of my very favorites. She arrived on December 7, 2013.

Unfortunately, I haven't had the chance to take many pictures of her. I only have 2 to post right now, plus there is one more I posted here, which is a photo available in my stores. Hopefully I will be able to take more pictures of her, and my other girls, soon! But until then, here are the ones I have:

New Photo: Amber Faerie Doll

"Amber Faerie Doll"

The Amber Faerie lives deep in the gemstone forest, cultivating amber in the form of flowers and mushrooms, which she then distributes throughout the world. Amber is the stone of the zodiac signs Taurus and Leo, and is an alternate November birthstone. It represents eternal love, life and youth. It is also said to have many healing properties.

This image is now available on my stores at Cafe PressZazzleRed Bubble, and my deviantArt Print Shop.

If anyone is interested, I wrote a post back in July about the making of this doll, with more photos. you can read that here. ^_^

Scientist Says New Research Proves 'Dogs are People Too'

Check out this great MSN video - Scientist Says New Research Proves 'Dogs are People Too'

I didn't really need a scientist to tell me this, but it's very interesting anyways! I think if they could scan other animals, they would find the same thing. God loves all His creation, and all His creation is capable of love.
