Circe by deridolls Circe by deridolls
Meet little Circe. :)
In case you're not familiar with her story, Circe's a character in Homer's Odyssey, a sorceress who transformed Odysseus' men into pigs with her potions.
Of course Odysseus, being the big hero and whatnot, blablabla, escaped the the same fate, saved his men and seduced Circe into helping him. :P

The pig was made with a pattern from the very generous *Madelei. Thank you once again!


Available for sale.

Your art is phenomenal. I find myself touched by the sweet faces you give to admittedly tragic characters. And I want them all SOOO badly! The pig is very sweet, and Circe herself is super cute.

:aww: Thank you much! I'm always thrilled when people comment on the dolls' faces.
I've heard about how they needed more features to pass emotion far too many times when I started; this made me happy I stuck to my guns. :)

It's a pity she fell for Odysseus, but I guess there must have been something about him. After all, Penelope did wait forever for him to get his butt back home. :giggle:
