manikin makeover


i wasn't too keen on how my manikin, Coco, turned out when i worked on it before. something about just wasn't working for me. so i've been fiddling with her a bit. i think it's because her bottom half is askwed, so i added a vintage slip that i cut out of another skirt and then put some tulle over it. i also dry brushed the torso with white and then taupe and then a glaze to soften it a bit. a bit of vintage lace trim is wrapped around her waist. she's much more glam now.
