for 16" doll Matt O"Neill by Tonner. My Lord Asriel was
temporarily rewigged and the beard was painted with aquarel pencil. |
- The violet jacket fastens back with
snaps. It is reinforced with a stiff woven interlining, that was
cut out without seam allowances. I also cut
out the 8 slashes into the front part, a little bigger, than the finished slashes
would be, and ironed the parts to the wrong side of velvet.
Then I cut out the slashes in velvet with small seam
allowances, and burned them off with the pointed soldering iron,
so they did not fray. The seam allowances of the slashes I turned
to the wrong side and attached with the buttonhole stitch. From
the slashes, trimmed around with a thin silver trim, peeks out the gathered silk. The jacket was
lined, embellished with silver trims.
The sleeves are five-times gathered.
- The silver/black breeches are gathered at waist and at bottom with narrow
elastic and embellished with silver trims.
- The black tailored cloak consists of 3 parts, and is longer at back than at front.
The cloak has the high, pointed collar and is lined.
- The wizard has also the scallop neck shirt and the
black stockings, they are off white inside, so the dark parts of the outfit don't touch the
plastic of the doll at all.
- To the costume belongs also the hat with
chiffon "slashes" and dangling little "bones" (made from Fimo).
The frog skeleton was partially painted with 3-D colour, partially embroidered.
The black, silver-trimmed ruff, was (sort of) cartridge pleated,
and stitched to a stiff band, that fastens back with hook and eye. The ruff
required 11 or 12 lengths of the neck circumference.
The black leather "mocassins" are modestly beaded.
The "chain" consists of crescents (originally hot-fix metal sequins, I
made 2 hole into each piece - and lot of them damaged, of course), joined with
wire eyes. The original Rumburak had a lizard hanging from the chain, hut I
didn't found any, so my wizard has a little silver crocodile there.
