Say hello to Aliisa
I am in a progress of giving my Monster High dolls a make over. Going through the bunch I have to see who needs a new repaint and who need a face up in general. I have had this Draculaura that Alasse sent me for a while ago. Had plans for her to look like a walking add for Harajuku Fashion, but it really did not suit her. Then I thought she would be a candy dream (details with candy made from clay and so on), but that sounded too sweet. Well, she is my sleepy head, all in pink. Meet Aliisa.
|Before. Just with a wig from Alasse.|
|Some glitter to make her sparkle.|
|Borrowing some glasses from another monster.|
|Such a sleepy head.|
Her name is a Finnish version of Alice that comes from the Old French name Aalis, a short form of Adelais, itself a short form of the Germanic name Adalheidis. Alice became popular in France and England in the 12th century. It was borne by the heroine of Lewis Carroll's 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' (1865) and 'Through the Looking Glass' (1871).
|Pouty lips. I think I am bothering her with this photo shoot.|
|Borrowing some shoes from a monster. Or maybe she just took these...|
|Made the flower crown out of mini roses and pipe cleaners.|
|I really like how she turned out. Wanted to try something 'new' for me, a doll with closed eyes.|
|Behind the scenes - at my 'office', as we say here at home. And by the way, the greenish book is my bullet journal!|
And some weather news. Snow and cold. We had -14°C just the other day and today we got some snow. It is beautiful to see the snowflakes fall and when the sun shines it is like Winter Wonderland. But then when it gets warmer and get so slushy, it is no fun no more.
|Our street, a view out from the kitchen.|
|Frosty window. Had it open for a while and the warm air indoors got to meet the cold air outdoors.|
Enjoy your new week and hopefully your new year have started well!
