Gloriana – first large procelain Enchanted Doll is completed!
This is her – Gloriana! Please excuse the domestic setting. I didn’t have time to set up a photo shoot, so I snapped some pictures of her around my apartment before stuffing her in a carry-on suitcase and flying to Kansas City for her premiere at the Spectrum fantasy convention tomorrow.
Gloriana – a symbolic name I chose to signify a threshold of a Golden Age, is my new platform for creative expression. I’ve got big plans for these big dolls, namely tattooing them. In fact, the only reason I decided to create a big Enchanted Doll in the first place, was so that I could have a bigger canvas to engrave stuff on. Just imagine all the fine detail I’ll be able incorporate into my tattoo designs on a scale like this! If I wasn’t so exhausted and jet-legged right now, I’d be jumping up and down in excitement and anticipation of things to come.
But, now that this first prototype is finished and I know it works and can be replicated; now that I’ve developed a working production formula, I will have to take some time off from the big doll before I can bring myself to make anther one of these giantesses. She really burned me out. And she it taking over my bed, apparently.
Working on this scale and facing all the challenges that came with it, really put my small doll in perspective and made me appreciate them even more.
Enjoy these candid shots of Gloriana on random surfaces in my home. I’m off to (hotel) bed. Tomorrow I’ll show you Theodora.
