Aztec Princess by deridolls Aztec Princess by deridolls
A custom order from the lovely ~zoxchilt3, here is my second Aztec Princess Deridoll, inspired by this beautiful work from a fellow deviant, [link]

Isn't she stunning? :love:
The beading on the dress and headdress was a real challenge as I'm more accustomed to small scattered clusters or long curved lines. This sort of angular patterns were a first.
There's plenty of room for improvement (oh, symmetry, why do you elude me so?!), but I'm quite proud of myself here. :D

And the feathered headdress! :drool: God, I love feathers! I love birds as the beautiful animals they are, but I can't help but go "Hmmmm, what lovely craft supplies you have there, my flying friend..." whenever I see one, like the hopeless supply addict that I am. :blushes:

What a compliment. I love your Deridoll. I have to agree on or off a bird feathers are lovely. You've used them well.

:D Thank you! She took about one week to make, but it was mainly because I had to re-do the beading on her dress a million times until it was anywhere near decent. :facepalm:

Thank you for saying so! My dolls are waiting impatiently for me to finish semester. I've been doing some bits and pieces - I just put in Ginny Weasley's hair, although I think I cut it a bit short in the back, so I might have to fix that - but I'm really busy with university at the moment and really need to focus on that. Hopefully in the holidays I can get some of the partially complete ones finished and posted. :) I have a few characters I really want to make, so I think I'll take a leaf out of your book and start a list... :P

:) I'm an air-head, so a list is vital if I don't want to forget or mix everything up.

Looking forward to seeing them then, then. :D
I'm assuming you're in exam season, so good luck with those!

It looks amazing with all the feathers! I find it hard to work with feathers because they like to point in different directions than intended :P...

I know what you mean! But I was lucky this turn because the batch had feathers from both wings, I think, and I got a nice balance.

The feathers look gorgeous, and yeah, too bad of the symmetry of the beads, but that doesn't stop me to say that I think she looks perfect! :heart:
