This Week's Doll Star: Sadie!
Base Artist: Corina
Artist Background: Painter, curator extraordinaire and fellow inmate at CGU. Due to her crazy schedule, Corina was unable to participate in this project beyond the beginning stages. However, the group continued to work on this week's featured doll and she was exhibited with the rest of the "gang" in gallery shows. So, without further ado, I give you...
...the wire hanger?!?! Um, yeah. The idea of a "doll starter" was nothing if not flexible.
Round Two Artist: Stacy
Evolution: There ya go! A torso! And an anatomically correct torso at that. So there.
Round Three Artist: Laurel
Evolution: On the exterior we have a very Vera type o' print. On the flip side is Mother Nature showing off her I am woman, hear me roar fashion forward design. Oh, and don't forget the delicate limb and dainty fingers...
Round Four Artist: Janet
Evolution: A lovely beaded necklace completes the ensemble...
Round Five Artist: Stevie
Evolution: The lightbulb went on and...no, I'm not kidding, her head is literally a lightbulb. Add a hat and she's ready to par-tay!
Round Six Artist: Jonna
Evolution: Coiffed and not with synthetic hair mind you. No, that is the artist's hair...um, the artist's hairballs I mean.
Round Seven Artist: Bee
Evolution: Shoes in a bed of flowers of course!
Round Eight Artist: Young
Evolution: Or in this case DEVOLUTION. So, we all received an email from Young with apologies galore. Her car had been broken into and what did the perpetrators steal? You guessed it! The box that held Sadie! God only knows what the thieves thought upon opening the box and seeing a doll made from a lamp! I don't think that they were too happy with the acquired loot. That's fer sure.
Poor Young...she tried to recreate the body, but remade from solid plaster and weighing in at over 20 lbs., the girl just wasn't what she used to be.
Round Nine Artist: LadyLinoleum
RE-Evolution: In crocheted memoriam.
Round Ten Artist: Dyane
RE-Evolution: The ransom note reads...
I have the doll. It's safe for now. I will need one million dollars, $20 and $100 bills. Meet me at Krispy Kreme, Puente Hills parking lot, noon, no cops, come alone. If I don't get the money I will smash it.
Round Eleven Artist: Bea
RE-Evolution: Flowers for the grave.
Round Twelve Artist: Stephanie
RE-Evolution: A frame for the photo of our girl taken before the tragic abduction.
Sadie, we will always remember you.
Evolution of the Doll!
Three down, ten more to go...
