Tattoos of baby rattles - Tattoowise
This shot is more an exploration of colours and shapes and capturing them in a way that is slightly different for me It is not camera shake but the lens was deliberately defocused a bit to get this effect.
This is my custom krypt kiddies doll Esmeralda.
Esmeralda was previously the mass produced krypt kiddies doll, Blitz. I blushed her face with various tones of pink and purple pastels to make her grey skin tone a bit more exciting in colour. Her eyebrows and eyes have both been repainted with acrylics. Her eyes are now very bold and striking in colour, which I find is a common trate with the handmade krypt kiddies dolls. I've painted them with various shades of green to contrast with her outfit. I've blushed the outside of her eyes with pink pastel and added eyelashes to bring her eyes out even more. Her nostrils have been darkened to add depth and realism, and her horns have been dusted with brown pastel. She has been sealed all over with an expensive spray-on matt varnish that is very popular among doll artists for it's durability and fine finish. After being sealed with the matt varnish I then used brush on gloss varnish on her eyes, nostrils and mouth to add detail.
Her outfit was made from scratch by myself. Her outfit consists of a skirt, top, headscarf and optional shall and bag. Her original nappy is included too and because she was original an anatomically correct boy doll it has been sealed in place so as not to cause any surprises (:P). The skirt has been made to have a baggy, flowing shape as has the black velvet top to give the gypsy feel. The head scarf is made of the same velvet as the top and has been permanently affixed to her head, it is tied at the back with various lace for decoration. Her bag is made of lace with a velvet strap and features a Jewel heart and a polka dot bow. The shall is made of black fabric netting and is simple tied in place around her neck. She also has two gold hoop earing's, one in each ear, and has strands of hair on ever side of head than hang from under her head scarf. One strand features 2 skull beads.
