Ursula as Titania
Ursula, my little Black Forest bear, finally emerged as Titania, Queen of the Fairies.
She was actually one of the very first dolls I made, but for a long time I couldn't decide on her costuming. Finally it just came to me. Ursula would dress up as Titania.
I made her fairy dress from silk chiffon and edged the hem with beads and hanging crystals. Making the ribboh flowers was a new and fun venture. I made her wings from glittery fabric stretched and glued over a wire frame. To hide the wire, I stitched a border of sparkly hex-cut seed beads, and added a few flat-back Swarovski crystals for more "fairiness." Her wand is a toothpick coated with glitter and tipped with a glitter-covered polymer clay star. Tiny star-shaped flat-back crystals brighten the center of the star. The ribbon is very fine metal mesh.
I think she is very fun.
