Lena was my entry into the Think Pink V contest’s Artisan Crafts category at DeviantArt.
She’s had all of her original factory paint removed, and then carefully hand painted with artist quality paints, giving her light blue eyes, natural shading, and pearlized pink lips.
Her hair is styled with two simple lace braids on the sides that join together with a hand beaded barrette.
The design on her corset was tooled into very thin tooling leather and then the entire piece was painted pearl white and & the design in deep pink. Tooling a think pink ribbon that small was a challenge! *grin* It laces up on the side with gorgeous nylon thread through tiny silver eyelets. Her skirt is made from a gorgeous pink crepe that has been hand embroidered with a blanket stitch.
Lena’s wings were created with tons of hand-picked white feathers attached to a wire frame, and then securely fastened to the doll.
Lena’s boots are designed after viking/guille boots & created with thin silver leather with the edges painted pink to match her corset.
SHE WON FIRST PLACE!!!
