An Henry V inspired both by Kenneth Brannagh's and Richard Burton's portrayal.
Henry's coat of arms combined the fleur-de-lys with the 3 lions and that was my major challenge with this doll.
I'm pleased with the fleur-de-lys, but have mixed feelings about the lions. =/ Part of me is dead proud of what I managed with such a tiny work space to stitch on, the other part is expecting a pelting with rancid vegetables from proper embroiderers for my audacity to call those things lions... *hides*
A custom order from a performer at the Texas Renaissance Festival who asked for a jester dolls inspired by her own costume.
The diamond shape patterned tunic worried me a bit at first, but it went without a hitch when I put my hands to it and the beads were a delicious touch to add. My only sorrow is that all the bells I could find were too big for her. =(
And a present for a Marilyn Manson fan. =) I absolutely love how he came out and I'm VERY proud of his tie in particular. <3
