Introducing the Queen of Hearts! Pictures in progress!

Dear Friends,

These are the pictures of my Queen of Hearts doll.. Inspired by the forthcoming Tim Burton recreation of Alice in Wonderland.. I decided to do my own rendition of the lovely tale.

The first doll for pre-sale is the Queen of Hearts.

I will soon list her for pre-sale on etsy. I will have a new store there for dolls and
darker themed artwork called HerDarkHeart. This also goes along with the website of the same name.www.HerDarkHeart.com

I should have an introduction page up for HerDarkHeart.com soon.

Queen of Hearts Description:

She is 18” tall, and made with vintage porcelain doll parts that have been totally renovated!
All porcelain parts have been airbrushed and sealed with varnish.
All facial features are hand painted, shaded and sealed with varnish.
I use only the highest artist quality paints and mediums in the process.

She has applied real hair eyelashes, and handmade black mohair 18th century style

I am currently working on her 18th century corset.. ( The pink one she has on is
from another doll, she is just trying it on for size!)
Here is her corset in the works, it is so CUTE in miniature!

Her body is made of natural cotton muslin with a higher thread count.
She has several layers of polyester polyfil, cotton batting and silk tape, covering a plastic armature that makes her
both flexible and poseable. ( and able to stay posed).

Her outfit will consist of red/ black striped bloomers, red 18th century corset,
Black striped stockings, custom made 18th century style court shoes from Atelier GiGi., Red taffeta panniers, and Grande Croquet Gala Gown.
She comes complete with her custom jeweled throne., and heart staff ,
and miniature crown.

Price approximate: $2,000.00- 2,500.00

Please note, each doll is in process of being made. THESE ARE ONE OF A KIND PIECES, and cannot be duplicated.
If you pre-order a doll, expect 8-10 weeks for delivery.

( Depending on my production schedule, which reads like this)

February- Queen of Hearts ( with jeweled velvet throne)
March-Alice 1 ( drink me with ornate bottle )
April-Mad Hattress ( with tea set)
May-Alice 2 (with ornate Victorian Chair)

Please contact me to order. I require a %50 deposit for holding and %50 upon completion to ship. International buyers welcome.

Looking forward to seeing this project complete! It will be beautiful!

Viva La Reine!
