Personal Challenge doll

Warning if you don't want to look at weird looking curvaceous bodies then look away!!!

I am doing the Personal Challenge doll in Sherry's group. I sewed the body parts and wanted the legs bent so that I could make the doll sit. Until I started to assemble the parts I didn't realise that to make the legs fit in a sitting position I would have had to alter the body a bit or have the legs in standing position. Since I wanted to avoid making a stand for the doll I didn't want  straight legs. I joined the parts anyway and you can see how hilarious the doll looks.

So I decided that I would sculpt her body! Having no experience in doing a sculpt I just did what I thought was right and you can see the results down. Everytime I look at it I want to laugh lol! Oh well I think it will have to do. It is becoming a real challenge for me just because I wanted her to sit down lol!
Even Choc has a chuckle now and then looking at her. Bye the way he insisted on being in the picture.


  1. Hey, I think you found a creative way to solve your problem! By the time you costume her, she'll another one of your marveous dolls. How clever you are ;)

  2. Oh, Shashi - she looks really good. I never even thought of making mine seated - what a great idea.
    I, too, am hoping that the decoupage will cover a lot of sins.

  3. Well she looks great already! I'll look forward to seeing her finished. I'm sure she'll be terrific!

  4. wow, this is cool and she is big too.

  5. Wow I would love to have a body like that--smile--
    She looks so great, I will return to se her finished.

  6. wohoo that what this challenge is all about learning to use paperclay to fix the cloth body and this is perfect i love her

  7. What's wrong with her? She'll be great when she has clothes...or even decoupage..or whatever.... looking forward to the progression....

  8. Love the pose! Nice body. Can't wait to see her face.

  9. You would never know she wasn't meant to sit Shashi. I know her face will be magical - can't wait to see it!

  10. I think you took the challenge to heart and did a fabulous job of fixing her up! She's going to look wonderful when she's finished!

  11. Dear Shashi, I love what you're doing with this doll! :)

    Thank you so much for your thoughtful comments and emails over the past week - and for the package you sent, too. I owe you a long-delayed email of thanks. Big hugs.

  12. She looks great to me already Shashi! I just know that she is going to turn out really beautiful!

  13. She reminds me of Madonna for some reason!!
    Can't wait to see her finished.....
