I used some red velvet hydrangea petals and a black tutu that I had leftover from my ill-fated Goth Petalbelle doll line.
I've since gone on a roll and tried to make as many dolls and ornaments as I could from the ballet. Here is Clara holding her beloved Nutcracker. I used silk dogwood petals for her nightgown and found the teeniest Nutcracker beads. I especially like the way I styled her hair with part of it pinned in the back and falling around her shoulders.
The Snow Queen
And a quartet of ballerinas from The Waltz of the Flowers which I'm also calling Sugarplum Fairies. Costumes and colors vary from production to production, so I'm hoping to get away with it :) I made the different colored paper flowers which decorate their hair.
I'll try and post again in a few weeks and bid everyone a good holiday and new year. I know I've neglected my blog for the past two months, but I look forward to picking up again in January.
And just for my blog followers I have a coupon for 10% off your entire purchase in my store from November 29 to December 6. Just enter code Petal9 when checking out. And remember, I can change the color hair of all my dolls to make it more personal!
