Another one of my lifelong dreams has come true, I got to hike the great wall of China. This section is part of the original wall without restorations. It was overgrown and deserted, a very surreal and exhilarating experience.

Attention Enchanted Doll Collectors: Twenty To Midnight doll with one of a kind tattoos is going up for auction on Monday, September 5th, 2011.

Twenty to Midnight was shown in London and originally had a sculptural bronze wig, but I had decided to use the wig in another project (to be unveiled in a few months) and put this doll up for auction with 4 new mohair wigs instead. This Flame Red wig is one of them. I had so much fun making her new wigs and playing with different looks, that I got rather carried away and accidentally made her some outfits and accessories, which will also be included in this auction. Just to mix things up a bit.

I will be posting 20 new pictures of Midnight in the weeks leading up to the auction, so stay tuned if you want to see her new looks. She is a little chameleon.

As you may remember from my earlier posts, I’ve been working on this tea dress for a couple of weeks now. I needed a light and fun distraction from other, more complex and demanding projects; a little working holiday.

And it still took me longer than I originally planned, because I kept complicating the design. I can’t seem to help myself.

Yup….just loooove complicating things.

I was working without a sketch. Just letting the bits of lace inspire me.

I think it might be done. At least for now. I want to keep it light. Must. Stop. Beading…. I do feel a sense of completion about it, but, a week from now I may wake up and decide that this dress is several thousand beads short. It’s like I’ve got an Alien Hand syndrome.
