New dolls in progress

I am actually working on a new type of doll at the moment (I have become obsessed with 1920's Boudoir Dolls) but first I need to finish the Cult of Doll project. I am furiously drawing away on the illustrated "Adventures of Miss Araminta", there is still a lot to do before the January the 3rd publication date. Of course, the heroine will also be making her debut in doll form too!

I have been working on Araminta in little breaks from my freelance work since the beginning of this year. From today I am going to begin slowly leaking the Work in Progress (WIP) pictures on my blog and elsewhere and here are the first 3 images for you. She is a large doll (around 70cms) and an adaption of my old Frost Fairy pattern (here, here and here....ohhh, and here!) and is in the process of getting a huge feather bedecked hat... but you will have to wait for the Almanac to publish to see her finished in all her glory. For now though...
