|The Goblin Ball|
By Ksheyna Nightswood
She was inspired by the ballroom scene from The Labyrinth.
I had quite a lot of fun with this one. I spent all of May designing her, and most of June was finding the right materials. The mask is one of my favourite parts to this doll ( that and the little goblin), it started out as a flat piece of foil, shaped then cut down to size. (I plan on making a few life-size masks to go on my wall based on this one.)
The hardest parts... those eyelashes. I lost a few... more then a few, one moment they were there the next gone!! The most enlightening part was her hair, I usually keep my dolls hair simple and sweet, but not this one, simple and sweet would have been far to out of place. I found a YouTube video 'Labyrinth Ballroom Scene Hair' which was stunning, there was no way I could have done it with out it.
