The hair is mohair hand dyed, I used one continuous length of it to preserve the beautiful color trails. I placed strands of black mohair yarn over to add lines.
I had wanted to use marbles for eyes for awhile so took this opportunity to do it so the eyes are clear marbles and you can see right into the heads of the dolls and the light catches in a really pretty way.
I shaped the vari-form for the corset and the end effect was 100% better than I hoped it would be. I had purchased a small black leather purse in a thrift store to cut up for the leather but this is better. I may cover the feet in the leather and could still cover the vari-form in it but not feeling like risking how pretty it is now, maybe later. Still have some tweaking to do but was very happy with them and had to take a few pictures :)
They are ready for their close-ups Mr DeMille..
