You are very brave to take on this project, "allurose". It seems obvious that this earth mother was an early example of the FH dolls. I would very much like to see a more recent example. The costuming and ideas seem good but I have wondered about the execution of both dolls and clothing.
Yes, thank you libbymorgan and jilljackson! I have begun work on her now. I took her apart completely and removed all the loose leather. I am now studying each joint to try to solve the posing problems. I should make a thread in the workshop... I'm so grateful for this forum full of experts! <3
Jill Jackson, I have a date set with Nessa to do comparison photos with her new FH mermaid, who is very lovely! I'll post many photos later this month.
Ok, after reading this thread all the way through, I NEED to know how the project worked out!
It never went anywhere. She is still in pieces. I lost steam on the project and am passing her onto a friend.
The main thing that discouraged me was I realized it would be pretty much impossible to cover up her bad face paint. I am giving her to my friend complete with the leather and strings needed to finish assembling her.
