I love her to bits, I'd say she's one of your best dolls ever! (The gryphon from Alice in Wonderland will always be my top favourite though)
I just love her outfit, it's so delicate, intricate and detailed, it works so well together. So many tiny nuances like the little medallion around her neck and the grassy belt make it so visually captivating
The leaves in her hair are an absolute winner, as is her painted face! the colours are so beautiful and rich, her nose and lips are just so tangible... I'm totally awe-struck with her. What's her story? She looks like and incredible piratical sea nymph!
Is her hair faux fur or mohair? It looks so soft...
Her hair is Tibetan lambs wool - it went so well with the leaves - I just had to use it. I'm rarely disappointed with the material - though it does come from an animal and that isn't always what people want to hear. It is really soft and so wild! There really is nothing like it.... maybe ostrich feathers...
This is what I wrote about her:
"Belladonna is something of a wild child - or, so they tell me. Such crazy tales are told of her that I'm not sure what to believe or to share with you.
I know she has many names - though she only responds to her given one and, I think: Oonah. She enjoys music, but only on certain days.. or was it all the time... and can sing like a song bird if asked politely.
She plays tricks - though never particularly nasty ones... I imagine, or course that this depends on your point of view.
Either way - I'd be sure not to cross her and invite her to every party!"
