Morticia, my first doll, is finished!

Here she is, all dressed and wigged and everything. I am pretty proud of her although there are def a few things I will do differently next time!! But I think for a first try I am pleased. Her shoulders are very broad and akward mainly because I didn't account for having to attach her arms. That's my biggest regret... so I will def pay attention to that next time. Plus her dress is a little more Edward-Scissor-hands-esque than sleek-and-chic.... but hey I'm just glad she has clothes!!! I need to get over my sewing-phobia before I start any of the other characters!! But she has some nice curves and a little sex-appeal for Gomez so I'm happy. I might try again, but I will definitely keep this Morticia around as she is my first doll and that's worth something!



Thanks so much to everyone and for your advice!!! Going into the wigging was the scariest part of the whole thing but I think it came out the best! So thank you so much!

And now that I have the Mrs. of the Mansion hopefully she'll agree to help me out with a future post.... showing you around the mansion so far (there's still not much so don't get too excited...)

  15. She is every bit the woman I wanna be, Ara. Now Tara can finally meet her! Love her cleavage so don't hide anything please. I must say I am so very impressed with your wigging. Her hair is immaculate.

  17. Ara....GREAT first doll! That's how I learned and I'm still learning how to sculpt and refine my dolls and I have been sculpting miniatures for over 5 years.
    Clothing is also very tricky and hard...it's not my strong point but I'm still trying to perfect my size and sewing.
    Keep up the wonderful work!!!!

  25. Fabulous job on Morticia! I especially love her pouty lips. You should definitely sculpt Gomez leaning down kissing up one of her arms! How about a thorny stick (with the rose cut off, of course) in one of her hands? The possibilities are endless here, she looks wonderful, and her hair is just perfect!

  26. I saw The Addams Family last year and loved it! Lane and Neuwirth were fantastic as well as Krysta Rodriguez. The story line and music were very entertaining and tickets weren't cheap, i got them from Ticketsinventory.com ...hopefully they do make it on Broadway again.It’s one of my favourite shows; I would see it again in a heartbeat!
