Lady in a bathrobe

Finished my miniature doll - A lady in a bathrobe :)
I'm imagining she's gotten out of the shower and is getting ready. She's holding a lipstick and I made her hair look 'natural' as if she hasn't styled it yet.

I gave her some loose curls/waves by spraying her hair with 'stiffen stuff' (fabric stiffening spray), wrapping it around a knitting needle and blow drying it.. I then used glue to hold it in place how I wanted it to sit :)
Debating with myself whether or not to take a better picture in the morning, but knowing me I'm probably not going to.

I've also decided to keep myself from using blue as the main color for clothing for a while.. This is the third doll in a row, if mr Butcher's apron counts, that has blue clothes..
But I had to give her a blue robe - the drawing/pinup that inspired me was a woman in a blue robe, a towel around her her,. Pieces of dark brown hair sticking out and a big smile - with red libstick, of course. I fell in love with the colors.

Unfortunately I didn't have the perfect fabric to use as a bathrobe..
Towels/washing cloths were too thick.. I had a micro fiber cloth and even though they kind of have the right texture, it was still too thick.
So I ended up using this stretchy cotton material since it could look like a similar texture?.. if you squint a bit, haha.

I didn't get started on the Santa today, so it's probably not going to be up on YouTube until Sunday,.. What held me back was something as stupid as my manicure. My current manicure didn't exactly look need anymore, after approx 2 weeks and lots of crafting - so I had to fix that.. Closeups of chipped outgrown nail polish doesn't look good on camera *sigh* :)

  6. I love your work. I've been wondering what brand of soft and chalk pastels you use. Mine never seem to go on smoothly.
