She’s just about finished. A quick post about Petal. I plan to list her and will update when I do. But for now, it’s time to just introduce her.
She started off as Charlotte Fleur. I got her without her scalp and dome so I went shopping for hair. I don’t like to do re-roots anymore and will do anything get out of doing a re-root. I do love the look of the natural fibers like alpaca and mohair so sometimes I’m able to trade services for one. In fact, for this girl I thought I’d have some gorgeous wool hair for her and sent it off for a trade but the person who I sent it to hasn’t had a chance to get to it yet. So… that meant trying something else. There’s this Etsy shop that sells some interesting scalps. I had my eye on this pastel bob for a while.
It reminds me of Hydrangeas we have around the neighborhood. They grow so well here and I love the way they go from pink to blue. I thought of naming her Hydrangea but decided on Petal. I’d like to say it was her that told me her name but I think the eye chips might have had something to do with it.
These beautiful chips by Irene Garcia, aka Ig Sirenita really make her special. I hate to sacrifice them on a doll I’m going to let fly the coop but they were so perfect for her.
More on Petal later including where to get her. For now, I want to just enjoy her flowery goodness!
