I was commissioned to make Harley Quinn, whom I had never heard of until my daughter was gifted the 'Bat'! So I investigated, and thought it might be a good challenge.Needlesculpting and painting the face came together quite quickly, using a head pattern I had designed for Marie Antoinette. Just a few adjustments to the facial sculpt, but I neglected to put in the smirk, because it was just a trial head. I was pleased with how it coloured up, after all, it's just like theatrical makeup! The Hair, on the other hand, was a mission! The old acrylic wig I used was curved, and I would have done better with straight, possibly! Never mind, I managed to get some semblance of style. After all it doesn't have to be exact and everyone will have a different interpretation! It's a trial!
I had forgotten about the hair colour, until I showed it to my family, who reminded me! Easy!
The legs! I was amazed how much art work went into doing these legs, because the boots are first drawn, then painted in two colours, then Mod Podged, then stitches painted on, then laces threaded through! After that, turn upside down and draw on the tattoos!
Here she is just finished, but with her head sitting on a skewer!
Even the t-shirt had to be hand painted, but that was fun! The belt is all fabric, with a few unseen studs. Might have to make a more glitzy one for the pattern. Yes, there will be a pattern for this art doll!
