Floppy Flo is finally done…

May 8, 2013

flowfinishedlegs flofinishedfront Floppy Flo is finally finished.  She is on her pole and looking good.  I added bling to her skirt using both pre-made trim I got at Joann Fabric and ponytail holders I got from Dollar General.  They are the type of elastics that have fancy lace and jewels that hang off of it.  They look like a fairy skirts when used on a doll.  I then her some thigh stockings complete with holes and a garter belt.  The fun thing about getting to this stage of the doll is now you can play.  You can make jewelry, fancy skirts, flowers in the hair, whatever you think your doll needs or is telling you she needs.  It sounds strange, but once you start making dolls you will find they talk to you, they let you know what they want to wear or the type of person she wants to be.

I don’t mean in a loud voice like someone is talking to you, but you get this feeling from doll as to what would look best or work well with your doll.  You may have started making a sweet little country girl and end up with a sexy singer, you just never know.  I don’t know how many patterns I have started working on and was going to try to make it like the picture, but she had other plans of what she wanted to be.  When thisflofinishedface happens just go with it.  You can end up with some of the nicest surprises.

Be sure to keep cflogarterfronthecking back and see what my next project is.  I would like to make an older, heavier stripper to show what Flo is going to look like in a few years.  Till next time…
