Better late then never! =D Here are the Tudor dolls I had promised for last week.
First, a new character on my Tudor portfolio.
A commission from the lovely M., from the USA, here is little Thomas Cromwell inspired by his character in the tv series The Tudors:
Once again the blanket stitch came to my aid when trying to suggest the beautiful black work of the ruffs.
And that long faux fur vest... Hmmmmm... *purs*
I didn't want him just to have a simple chain collar, so I went scavenging on my miscellaneous supplies' boxes and found a suitable flower trinket that looked similar enough to a Tudor rose for my liking. =)
I only wish it had taken better to the golden paint, though... =/
Again, a commission from M., another The Tudors' based doll, this time Thomas Culpepper.
He looks pretty much like the previous version of him I made some time ago. I only did a slight change to his sleeves.
While in the previous doll the sleeves had been bigger but flat, this time I went with a puffier look for the outer side.
And, once again, the tiny Tudor Rose on his chest.
Thirdly, another commission from the USA as well, but from a different M. =)
My 3rd version of Elizabeth I's gorgeous Coronation Portrait:
Little Bess without all the royal gadgets. =D
The regalia: cloak with faux fur trim with added ermine pattern, fully beaded collar (I'm so proud of how quickly and neatly it went!), crown, ceptre and orb.
And last, a very hasty shot of another Anne Boleyn doll I recently sent on her way to a new home. =)
