I have posted about this doll before, but after quite a lot of labor on her I decided to take some more pictures, possibly to put her on ebay. The pictures show up everything beautiful,

I made a bunch of dolls, or started them awhile back about 3 months ago. Some have worked out pretty good and some failed, this particular doll I named Izannah, because to me she is more like a Izannah Walker doll than a lot of the other dolls. I have noticed that some of the antique dolls had darker colors than others, the hair in particular was very dark and the eyes too. I saw a picture of a wonderful Izannah doll in a magazine and so set out to copy her, there are differences, but this doll does resemble the antique to a good degree. I don't have any clothes made for her yet, but borrowed the under ware from a different doll to make pictures. I do like this under ware a lot, even though it is not proper for a doll like this, but I used artist privilege to do what I wanted. I am going to make the dress as close to the antique's as possible and then will take some more pictures. I hope everyone is doing good and has lots of doll making plans for this year. We are busy doing the necessary things, but move ahead slowly with our doll making. This year I hope to do some different things, make some dolls I haven't tried before, but the work to make a authentic Izannah antique reproduction doll will of course continue, but the good thing about this is, it applies to other types of antique dolls too, so I will atleast have that experience on my side to help me. I do like this girl so much and have 4 more heads like her to finish. It will be fun to see how close these other heads will be to this doll. Happy doll making to you all and I hope you enjoyed seeing this dolly.
