Project Belly Dancer
My mission for the early part of this week is to create Belly Dancer Dolls. I know something about making dolls, but I confess to knowing absolutely nothing about Belly Dancers!
So I set forth with some of the basics. I know you have to see the belly buttons!! I also know that bra tops are pretty common. I know very little about the make-up, so I am faking that as I go along. (After all, my other dolls are not exactly realistic, and I am trying to suggest Belly Dancers, not be Belly Dancers.)
I know it is about the BLING, so I have used metalic colors like gold, silver and bronze. I have used beads that shimmer and change as they move. That has also been fun, as I usually have to subdue my urge to put glitter on everything!
I am having a blast doing them. Especially since when I get to the place where I would normally stop on one of my dolls...I just keep going and add more BLING.
I have three nearly finished (the ones shown here) and I have 6 more in the works.
