Long Tall Sally

This is going to be a somewhat smaller doll, medium size actually, smaller that the Stable Elf but larger than the Elf with the Corgie.
After I glued the feet on, she looked sooooooo long and tall to me!  Perhaps she will seem to shorten up once she's dressed.  I have a costume in mind with a multi-colored silk skirt, silk velvet top, and lots of beading with tiny marcasite beads.
But though I have the costume in mind, I don't yet have a theme.  Who is she?  What is she doing?
Perhaps she should be a peacock elf.  The colors I've chosen for her costume are definitely peacock colors and I just remembered that I have several small peacock feathers that could work into her costume somehow.  But if she's a peacock elf, what is she doing?  I'll have to think about it and see if I can develop that theme.

  2. Hi, Marja.
    I'm enjoying translating your comments with the Google Translator. I'll have to see if I can add it somehow to my blog!
    Yes, I've been quite busy with dolls lately. I think I have four in progress at the moment, and I switch back and forth, working now on one and then on another! Such fun!
    Take care,
