Rhonda and Rex are ready for a walk

Rex is anxious to get out for a walk and Rhonda needs to get dressed. I made a two layer skirt of miniature lace and sheer bronze organza which has a free form edge that was made using a mini tip soldering tool which I purchased from England. She has a sheer silk ruffed blouse and a faux leather hand stitched jacket which I embellished with micro trim. For accessories she has real leather shoes with tiny straps and buttons and a leather belt with a tiny gold buckle.

Her hair is baby angora, hand dyed a beautiful shade of auburn red. She sports a pink ribbon in her hair which matches Rex's pink collar and leash.

Take a close look at her eyes, I used a two part epoxy resin for a glass like finish. It almost looks like water when it dries and adds a realistic look to her eyes.
