Murina Updated

Murina the Bat Doll got a little more work done on her - I added eyelashes, worked on her face a little more, and painted some little flying bats on her neck (which was looking rather bare).
She's available for sale on Etsy:
Here are some more photos!

Red and black paisley fabric wings and skirt.

I think her eyes look much sharper with more definition.
Her wings are held in place with a purple button just like her arms.
Her boots are painted with a paisley-like pattern to match the wings and skirt.

She comes with a little shelf that she sits on -- can be hung on the wall with a nail.

We created this shelf so that she might be displayed easily. I'm always running out of shelf room for my dolls, so this is our solution -- hang them on the wall like picture frames!

Please let me know what you think, and feel free to message me if you have any questions! I hope you like her.

Murina was made for the Art Dolls Only Halloween Challenge - check out the other lovely art dolls here!

Murina the Bat Girl

Finally finished my Halloween project - Murina the Bat Girl doll!

She has just been listed on Etsy:
She's made from paperclay (head and hands) and cloth.  The paperclay is sculpted over part of her cloth torso, too.  She's got paisley bat wings (wired for posing) and her feet are painted in a similar pattern. Her knees are jointed with wooden beads, and her arms are jointed with some lovely purple buttons.

I've painted a bat on her torso. Her skirt matches her bat wings, and she has a tulle underskirt. Her hair is made from Tibetan lambswool. She's about 19 inches tall if she were to stand, but sits a lot better than she stands.

She's ready to fly to your Halloween party!
