Doll I made earlier in the year

Because of all the things going on in my life I couldn't post the picture of this doll which I had made earlier this year. She was a CIFI challenge doll. The theme for this year was under the sea. Her name is Aurelia and she is a jelly fish who rises ethereally from the depths of the sea floating silently by wherever the tide takes her. Her skirt lights up with fibre optic lights. Unfortunately the lights don't show up well in the picture except as bluish tint. I found it hard to depict the ethereal and floaty look of a jelly fish so she just looks like a ballerina lol!


  1. The second picture give me the idea with her skirt and the lights. She's lovely anyway:)

  2. Lovely work Shashi! I love the concept and her face, as always is brilliant. The lights really enhance the jellyfish idea. Cool.

  3. Beautiful - I like the idea of the lights. they do show up pretty well in the second picture.

  4. You always come up with something special,and this one certainly is special.Love her.
    I have a similar problem with Tony and his health.I am always tired nowerdays ,just have to keep trying to keep up somehow.

  5. Oh, she's so lovely! Yes, I see the lights (what a brilliant idea for a jellyfish! and yes, she does look like she's billowing upwards in a graceful way. I love the beading on her legs,like seafoam and little air bubbles.

  6. no i thought jelly fish when i saw her :) the lights are a great idea

  7. wow, gorgeous! So creative you are.

  8. Oops sorry I don't know what happened there I was doing something and this post got published again. I don't know how to put it back where it was before so I have to leave it without messing around too much now.

  9. She is beautiful and her skirt does look like it is floating. Hope she wins!

  10. Shevis beautiful shashi, Love her pose!

  11. Hi, Shashi
    I have been remiss in visiting your lovely blog. Wow! What a glorious doll Aurelia is...and her skirt even lights up...amazing. Yes, she does look like a ballerina, but a very magical jelly fish doll too!
