This miniature lady is modeling my very first wig. Yep, I'm using this head just to model the wigs. (The hair that you see can actually be taken off the head, and put on a hat stand).

My idea is to have a few wigs on display in one of my many shops of the shopping centre. Eventually, once I'll have enough wigs, I'll redress (yes, come on, the dress of this doll is absolutely ugly) and re-do the hair of this lady, but for the time being she'll have to be very patient with me and let me experiment with viscose.

Viscose is one of the messiest materials I've worked with so far. After a whole morning of wigging, and after a thorough clean up of my place, I'm still picking up viscose bits here and there. Quite frankly I'm not a big fan of sticky fingers with sticky viscose on, and viscose flying around the place, landing everywhere. But hey, I like the result, so I'll keep making some more wigs!

Here you can see some pics of the wig, I hope you'll enjoy seeing them!

Miniature Shoes

Hello! As you can see, the construction works have been interrupted again in order to leave room to some accessories making -which is my favorite part!-
I have been wanting to make miniature shoes for ages, but I've always been too shy to attempt it. But this time I decided that I HAD to try it....So there you go, my very first 5 pairs of shoes!!!! Ta da!!!!
Even though they're imperfect in many ways, I still love them, and I think that they will look cute in my women's fashion boutique, paired with some lovely dresses (yet to be sewn of course, you know it'll take me a while to even get to that!).
Of course now that I've started to make miniature shoes, I have plenty more leather colors and fabrics that I want to experiment, mix and match with different styles, and so on. I think this might be like with the hats...After I made the first hat I HAD to make more, it was so addictive.
Well, I'll leave you with these pics for the time being, and I'll go back to more shoes making :)
Enjoy xx

PS. Sorry for the blurry pics, but the weather here in England is so horrible that it's almost impossible to take pics with some sun rays!
