used polymer clay mix for the sculpting, 80 % pro sculpt, the rest is premo and cernit. Sculpted over a strong wire armature with bras tube system for more stability, and support . ( support bras tube is under the skirt)
I used mohair for hair what I dyed for the right color.
The hearts on the dress are from pink silk, crystals and micro beads are attached one by one. I used gold thread for the fringes, attached one by one.
Boa skirt made by me from different shades of pink and white marabou feathers, sew together with white thread , I colored the whole skirt with strong pink eye shadow 🙂 It didn’t ruin the feathers and gave a nice shade.
Swing is covered with velvet and silk. Base made from wood.
