Onray & Me-ish

Thought I should work on my latest chick - was hard to move myself off the PC, I'm enjoying looking at other artists work way too much.
Took some photos just to prove I did something.... except Onray wanted to join in the photo shoot! He is recovering well from his snake bite, thankfully.
Anyway, I have completed all her bits, just need to get her dressed and accessorized...
She doesn't really look like me, more like Gina Mckee who played Hugh Grant's sister in Notting Hill! She has my mole, hair and nose stud so maybe that will make up for it! I made a woolly hat for her as I wasn't happy with the parting of her hair. It then occurred to me, that I should go on-line and find out how to apply real hair, which seems harder than using yarn.... bad mistake, I found a great site showing how to make a wig (Antonette Cely), but then that took me to a whole host of sites - one in particular was NIADA (National Institute of American Doll Artists) I thought it would be great to become a member of the NIADA, until I read the necessary 'requirements' to be 'voted in'. Bit out of my league......... 3 hours later, I stop perusing amazing sites!!
Her legs look shapely (actually wish mine looked like that!) and she'll be holding the wooden letter A, and I did make a woollen cat for her to hold, but I think I need to redo him.... By the way, Jesse's Guinness glass is great for holding the torso of dolls! hope he doesn't notice it's alternative use.. he will not be amused!
