Off with her head!!!!!

When I originally made the Red Queen, I experimented with sculpting and cloth over.  I really never was very happy with the face - her nose was too big, her eyes too slanted so I decided to do another.  I took pics as I was doing it as I think I may put her out as a pattern.  So here is the after and before and a pic of the whole doll.  I reused her hair and eyelashes though I see her one needs to be adjusted.  I have been staring at this doll hating her face for weeks now that she is sitting in my studio.  Now  I am happy with her.
Watch for information on Day with Dolls to be held August 13, in Boonton New Jersey.  Hope to see lots of dollmakers there.  We always have such a wonderful time.  Flyer coming soon!
