Bellatrix has Arrived and Casting Spells Already!














AT LAST!!!! We have finished and photographed Bella Baby... WHEW!! I say whew because it must be known up from that my dear sweetie Richard HATES to photograph with lots of black fabric in the picture... very difficult... and the bad thing is I LOVE creating dolls with lots of black... so when the time comes to photograph...we square off like two caged tigers ...low growls and a few hisses! But alas I think it worked pretty good. Now I am a bit unsure of colors and contrast as I have a new monitor and still learning to balance everything...so I am hoping all looks OK!

Bellatrix is 5 1/2" tall ...hand sculpted completely in polymer clay (you all saw her butt) ...you have to trust me on the rest! She is painted, hair is tight Lincoln wool. Clothing is silk....hand painted. Her corset or boustia is hand sewn leather. I carved her tiny necklace and Richard carved her wand.

She was a BLAST and I must say...my fav so far....and our first 'dark' character from Harry Potter .... more more more!!!

Now onto something totally different!!

Thanks for taking a peek...and putting up with 'butt shots'

Have a good evening

Jodi

If I could wiggle my nose and get to Lake H, I would bow at your artist's feet. Stunning! Wickedly Stunning.

WOW! I'm in sincere awe of both of you! Thank you for sharing your gifts with the world. And buttocks... I want that corset. Yup yup I do.

Debbie said...

Jodi, she is fantastic. She oozes Evil. She has a mad glint in her eyes. The necklace is amazing, so tiny. Who's next Lucius Malfoy? Voldermolt? Wormtail? Can't wait.

I just saw Bella on your facebook so rushed here cos I knew there'd be moe piccies - & I now have even more hand envy! LOL she really is fantastic, so much detail. I especially love her corset - hand stitched leather! (eyeballs popping) that must have been tricky, but its perfect.

Hi Jodi.
Rather than start at the top i started with the feet and so in love with those boots. The tatty hem is fantastic and love the way the swirls graduate down and end.
I love the lips and teeth and the hair is fantastic the way it turns from black to grey.I know somebody with a moth like that (got to stop staring at peeps).
Is that a little gap in the material on the upper sleeve? Thats a nice touch if so.
She is simply fantastic and has been a pleasure to view.
Well done to both of you yet again.
Nikki x

Thanks also for witching me up. Thrilled as Debbie said and over the moon! Been round it 3 times so far... lol.

dollproject said...

She turned out wonderful! And the contrast looks great on my monitor!

JODI said...

Hi Nikki
Thanks so much for noticing all the little details.
The gap in her sleeve is there...it is copied from the original outfit worn in the movie...basically the dress is seperate from the sleeve...and they are joined by hand stitched fine silk floss ...as is the underside of the sleeve .
So happy you like your New Witchy Self!!

Jodi
