Thistle is a custom Neo Blythe doll by me, Alter Ego Dolls created especially for Blythecon Calgary 2020. She has been carefully and soundly constructed as a custom doll. She is no longer factory perfect. While I see no flaws with her, she may have small handmade imperfections.  

Thistle was themed after the sweet prairie bunny! She is an RBL mold, Kiss Me True base doll with an alpaca weft sewn directly and carefully to a new scalp. The alpaca I processed from fleece, and hand dyed in acid dye bath in an indigo ombré effect by me. 

Work done:
-faceplate carefully carved, sanded painted 
-painted with Rembrandt pastels, Pan pastels , watercolor pencils
-her face has a slight shimmery effect, especially visible in the sun 
-sealed with MSC UV flat UV and finished with MSC UV Semi-gloss on the final coat
