Ready for wigging



It's taken me awhile to decide on costuming for this new sculpt.  I ended up using an apricot/gold tissue taffeta for the shoes and tutu and dying some silk netting for the skirt.  I love Lumiere metallic paints for silk fabric, they provide great coverage, yet the silk stays soft and flexible.  I used several different colors to get the skirt to compliment the taffeta,  and the same paints for the silk flowers on the belt.  I thought she looked rather exotic with no hair...but I'll get to that next.
