La Belle Epoque - PFDF 2012


 I created this OOAK lingerie doll for the La Belle Epoque theme of Paris Fashion Doll Festival (PFDF) 2012. I was inspired by the decorative style of the time, Art Nouveau and by the it's father Alphonse Mucha.

The doll is a customised Integrity Toys Lana from the Hollywood Royalty line. The doll has been rerooted with a fiery 3-tone Saran mix and given a complete repaint. I added super long lashes and gave them a gradient dye from black roots to titian tips. She also got a new Nu.Face body with blushing and Art Nouveau inspired snake tattoos.

The fashion consists of a burgundy tulle blouse embellished with silk ribbons; a corset made of orange vintage lace with Art Nouveau patterns, lined with yellow silk, adorned with ribbons and 8 garters with golden buckles; yellow silk panties; a pair of teal green net stockings; burgundy gradient effect shoes with hand carved Art Nouveau inspired heels; and as a cherry on the top a huge La Belle Epoque style hat of burgundy silk and tulle, adorned with teal green net strips and feathers.

The doll will be sold on a silent charity auction of PFDF  2012- The auction takes place at the  Mezzanine of the hotel NOVOTEL on Saturday, March 10th at 11.00am. The proceeds of the auction will be donated to the charity REVES (French version of Grant a Wish).

P.S. For those of you who cannot be there at PFDF to see this doll in person I  have another doll that I will reveal during the festival weekend. Keep posted! :)

This mold has always looked sort of sad and desperate to me. But your repaint really brought something tough in her, yet kept the vulnerability. Need I say anything about the outfit? You've outdone yourself again!

Pour l'avoir vue en vrai au PFDF 2012, je peux vous assurer que tout le monde était sous le charme de cette poupée (moi la première !) et qu'elle a obtenu l'une des plus belles offres (avec une autre poupée de créateurs italiens).
Bravo pour votre talent !!!
