The Ways of the Shaman

A commission Piece I made back in October. It was a Christmas gift so it had to be kept secret until now!
I absolutely love this piece! It holds a very special place in my heart.

WIP ~ Season Trolls

First lot of blushing is done and they now have their soft bodies!!

Time for costuming!!




Dark Wood Troll Maiden ~ Dreawyn

All Finished!!

Well after finishing Dreawyn I have to say that she is officially my favorite!!!!

Troll Maiden, a Lady of the forest. Also known as a Hulder (a seductive forest creature found in Scandinavian folklore) or Skogsfru (Norwegian folklore)

A hulder is said to be a stunningly beautiful naked woman with long hair and an animal's tail. A Skogsfru is said to be a deeply attractive woman that has either a hollow back or a tree stump on her back.
Said to be generally kind but are also known to be malicious.

Inspirited by the Skogsfru of Scandinavian folklore, with branches growing from her head and hollow bark covered back.

WIP Dark wood Troll Maiden

My Dark wood Troll Maiden is going to be my piece for the IADR Gothic Show. She is coming together slowly. I am currently working on her sleeves, they will be made up of individual leaves of the same silk as her dress and under skirt. Then I will start on her hair, I am going to use a dark auburn to match her under skirt, she will also have branches in her hair. 
I might add more touches to her skin once she is dressed and wigged.... not sure at this point...

Hand made branched growing from her back.
Each branch can be bent and twisted to any position.

Autumn Troll 2012

Well the year is (not so slowly) coming to an end, so I really need to get busy!!
 I have stopped taking custom orders for art doll wings and there will more then likely not be any new ones up till Jan next year... Time to get to work and finish off my Dark wood and seasons Trolls so thats 4 dolls in what? 5 weeks? Thankfully Autumn is finished and my Dark wood Troll Maiden is almost finished, the other 3 Trolls are all sculpted. So I just need to costume and wig them...

My Autumn Troll for 2012

Little Fairy wing Pendants by Nightswood. Something a little bit fun and new to make.
My Pendants are available in my etsy shop.

Something else thats a bit fun and new for Nightswood, ACEO cards.

More cards can be found here..  


The month that was.. October.. Fairy Dragons with eggs!

Nesting Dragons!! Such sweet little ones, all curled up with their eggs awaiting for the day they hatch!

 The Golden Blossom Fairy Dragon. She is finally finished!
Lounging on curled tree roots, this little fairy dragon watches as tiny flowers bloom around her.


The month that was.. October.. + The Goblin Queen.

  Time flies!!!!....
Well now, October has been quite a busy month around here. Between working on a private commission, fairy dragons, new pendants, aceo cards, Trolls (four of them) and a goblin queen costume.... I have had very little time to spare....

My Goblin Queen. For the Trick or Treat Kidz Fest at Barwon Park Mansion.
Talk about leaving things to the very last minute.. There was more then a few late nights sewing (and a bit of late night sculpting for the mask) It was all worth it in the end.. well at least I think it was :)

It was inspired by Lamia's green dress from the movie Stardust.

Goblin Queen Mask & Wings WIP

Everything except the hair was made by myself. The Elflocks were from Woodland Wild
