Day 19 of AEDM

Click on the picture above for additional Day 19 creative goodness

I was hoping to have an update on my co-worker’s test result for Covid-19, but no word yet. She’s feeling better so that’s some good news there! We are all hoping it comes back negative. We have another co-worker out who isn’t feeling well & we are all rooting that her test comes back negative too.

I’m so ready for 2020 to be finished, done, outta here & gone. It’s a year for the history books for sure.

Okay, short ‘n sweet again. I added more white dots to create the look of stars on the Gourd Trouble’s face & a bit on the chest. This doll will be wearing a vest. Heaven help me, I have to figure out how to make pantaloons. Yes, this doll wants pantaloons similar to what they wore in the times of King Louis XIV. The whole idea of pantaloons was planted months ago after binge-watching Versailles on Netflix. My muses love planting ideas in my brain. I swear I hear them laugh as I go down rabbit holes to figure out how to make these things happen.

I apologize for the photo. I really need to borrow my kid’s camera. My Nikkon won’t autofocus & it can be a bear to work with. The Bun has a new one because it was needed for a college class.  The doll looks much better in person.

The next steps are to make hands & arms from cloth with pipe cleaners inside for poseability. The upper legs will be made from cloth also & somehow I have to create combat boots (yet another idea floated my way via The Muses).  This isn’t a doll for the faint of heart. This is one over-the-top, what-is-she-thinking sort of doll.  Plus, it’s perfect for The Bun. So here we go, the vest will most likely be black, the pantaloons a lovely ombre of pink to purple & the hair, hot pink & curly.  Oh yeah, I can’t forget the horns.  This doll will have horns, also made from cloth.

Then to top it all off, I got an idea to make a train out of a gourd for my Dad.  I’ll put that on the back burner because there is no way I can get it done in time for Christmas.  Too many gourdy ideas & so little time!

That’s all to report from the Flatlands in NW Ohio.  Stay safe & I hope your day/evening is full of all things awesome.

    I love the dots. And hoping all those tests are negative too! Good luck with the pantaloons.

  2. SO sorry I’m late visiting. I’ve been very sick. The trouble doll is looking wonderful and I really can’t wait to see what comes next.
