This is a back view of the doll and you can see the feathers that go all the way around the upper skirt. The wings are made from a feather butterfly that I had and I just painted it with the same copper paint and added some copper glitter on the wing tips.
This is a close up of the "breast plate" it is made with some vintage jewelry pieces that I put together with some beads and a dragonfly charm...I hot glued it to the upper front of the dress. The Copper Queen also has a scepter made from a wooden bar-b-que skewer wrapped with the copper ribbon. I added some fibers and beads. There is a little bird on the top of the scepter...It was yellow but I painted it copper and added some feathers to match the dress.
I really enjoyed making this doll and I like the way it turned out...I am off now to create her "sister" the the "Golden Warrior Princess"...I may have to make them a step-sister, the "Silver Ice Princess". Looks like I might have to order some more mannequins from Outside the Margins. You know sometimes your muse just goes off on a trip and luckily you get to ride along...lol.
