WIP - next steps completed

I managed to find a little time every day this week to work on my Fairy. Her dress is finished now and her wig is on, though not styled yet. I applied this hair exactly the way Wendy Froud did it in her video, but I'm not crazy about the glue I used (stinky!)or the lack of a finished part. I want to try Linda Smith's method for my next sculpt.


I probably should have embellished her dress before gluing on her hair, but I got a little ahead of myself. (To be honest, it kind of freaks me out to be working on a bald doll.) Oh well, as long as I'm careful I shouldn't mess it up too bad.



Even though I'm not going to use them after all, I'm including this photo of the fabulous wings I got from My Wycked Ways simply because you have to see just *how* fabulous they really are. Trust me, this photo doesn't begin to do them justice, but you get the idea. I WILL make a fairy to wear them soon, but this girl is just too big.
