A truly Gothic Bride!

Finally...Magaly told people on her blog yesterday that she is getting married soon, so I can show you the special gift I have been making for her :D


Anyone who knows Magaly is fully aware of her love of red and black and all things creepy. She is also an amazing writer and friend.
When I first looked through a new doll making book by Jane Horrox I'd bought I knew the first doll I made would be for Magaly.
I took the Tim Holtz fabrics I had bought in the winter(because I NEEDED it) and the Morwenna Doll design from the book and The Bloody Bride was born.

 The sleeves of her dress are TH's Dictionary print fabric...
 she has daisy patterned fishnet tights...
 her gloves are the same netting with the addition of soft leather wrist straps and daisy buttons.
The dress itself is made from TH's Subway fabric.
 Her face is painted fabric...
 and her hair wild and sparkly...
 and she has a red organza veil :D
Of course, no bridal outfit is complete without her own chatelaine. Instead of keys I have given her a bumble bee(me), a red hot chilli pepper(Magaly), and a skull(our bond is so much more than skin deep).
She is now parcelled up and in the hands of the Royal mail service...winging her way to my dear friend. I would have loved to be at her wedding (I is her surrogate Mom), but I will be there in spirit.
Enjoy :D XXX

    1. lol Debi :D. When a girl married(in the old old days gone by) and became head of her house, she was given the keys. She hung them around her waist so as to not lose them.

  8. Love this doll! Love her. Love the tights and fingerless mittens. Love the turned fingers (You're crazy, you know? Who does turned fingers without the freakin' turning tools? You do!) I love the detail on the corset and the chatelaine. Really, really wonderful creature. Magaly is a lucky girl!
