Meet Anna Louise Higgenbottom

Since you asked (Miss Rachael), Anna is the doll I blogged about a few weeks ago -- the one I that was inspired by that beautiful Queen Anne I posted a ways back -- but I didn't get her photographed until the night before the show. She's a big cloth dollie with glass eyes -- made to look like a well-loved antique. Underneath her frock, she wears a shift, a periwinkle silk corset and an embroidered pocket. Lots of people at the show thought she looked creepy. I think she's lovely. What do you think?

I think your costuming skills are outstanding!

I agree with Dixie your costuming is wonderful, I do think she is creepy in a ghost like way. The hair slung to the side with uneveness to it. She is a beautiful OOAK tho.
