Day 14 - 31 Days

It's Day 14 and I was not the only one excited for today's post.  I altered a baby doll head into a wine stopper over a year ago.  The body of the doll has been very upset at me because it wanted a head.  I was at Walmart the other day and guess what...found a skull that said it was looking for a body.  I just happen to have one of those.
Brought the skull home and could not wait to sit down and create, bwwaaaahhhaaaa.  Now this little love has a special place in my heart and so should have a name worthy of its unique beauty.  
I only have boys, so this dear had to be a girl.  Her name means: The name of an evil spirit in Greek mythology who abducts and murders children. Also means "vampire" in Latin and "fiend" in Arabic.  What a perfect fit.  Hard to see but she does have a bit of blood on feet and hands.  Small enough to entice and feed on children this spooky Halloween.
I apologize for all the pics and you should be happy I narrowed it down to three!  Someone wanted me to get only the best poses...
I give you LAMIA:


Flashes of Details
Baby doll body from thrift store.
Spritzed with Maya Red Mist.
Linen Ranger Crackle Paint randomly on arms and legs.
Skelli head from Walmart.
Copper Inka Gold Rub on eyes, nose, and teeth.
Linen Ranger Crackle Paint randomly all over.
Soft Suede ink to give more aged look to skull and to grunge up a bit.
Thin candy stick to hold head onto body.  Cool because the head rotates when moved.
Dress is original that came with doll.
Took off garment and stamped skeletons (Freaky Friends, SU!) in Violet StazOn ink.
Also stamped spiders (Dark & Dreary - retired SU!) in Black StazOn ink.
Grunged up a bit with Cherry Cobbler and Soft Suede ink and water.
