After stalking my own post about me, err- I mean Headless Amy, I realized there were a couple of glaring problems. The floofy ribbon had to go- too much, it was interfering with the elegant line of her neck and compass/head. I feel much better- don't you?
I dressed up the cage and handle a bit. I think that turned out nicely.
And sadly, as much as I liked the idea of a mascara brush for an arm- it also was just a touch too much. Amy is now down to just that 7 cent can opener and some suitcase keys.
If you are in doubt of my decision let me tell you I was highly influenced by CoCo Chanel's advice- "Put on all your jewelry and accessories and then...take the last piece off."
I did add some bling to her coat and a nice belt to her dress. (Sorry CoCo- it seemed appropriate.)
Speaking of 'appropriate' I am very worried about my 80 year old daughter. I mean 8- eight- year old daughter. I figured out how to load music on to her i-pod shuffle that she received for Christmas. First you down load it onto your computer and then copy it to her device, right? Except that I couldn't figure out how to single out her teeny-bopper tunes and ended up downloading all my music as well as hers. So, imagine my self doubt when I, standing in the kitchen, hear her proclaim loudly to herself, in the living room, as she scrolled through her new music- "Oh no, I'm not EVEN listening to that! Its just not APPROPRIATE!!!!"
Now, really- which one of us is the adult? Cuz, only one of us just created a self portrait doll that has her head in a cage and a can opener for an arm....
