I got back on Tuesday from my five day trip to the UK and I felt exhausted, which is odd because I didn't do that much really! I was really happy to see that my mum is doing so well, she is now walking quite well with either the walker or her crutches, she's also cooking and able to do light housework. The only thing she's not doing is going outside on her own, which is fair enough as the weather isn't good and I'd hate for her to slip over.
Whilst there I did a little bit of shopping and met up with friends. My friend Sue, who I've mentioned several times before here on my blog, brought a parcel over to my mum's house, which I'd had sent to her from Dollstown in South Korea. I will share more of that in a future post. Anyway, it was lovely to catch up with Sue again if only for a brief time.
One of the dolls I brought back with me is Sienna by Kaye Wiggs. I bought her from a friend in the UK who is downsizing her collection. In fact I bought two dolls from her but will show them seperately.
Sienna is in Coffee tan resin and I have to say that her sculpting just blew me away, she is so beautiful. I think that she is my favourite Kaye Wiggs doll sculpt so far. She is so realistic!
Please excuse the dust particles on her face, I forgot to blow them away before taking the photos.
This girl is 43cm tall and has the 'Abby' body, which is the smaller of the two MSD bodies released with Kaye Wiggs dolls. She has beautiful Coffee Tan resin which is darker than my other Kaye Wiggs dolls and is such a pretty dark tan. There were only 50 of this doll released in this colour resin and all of them have had their faceups enhanced by Kaye herself. My girl is number 29.
The wig in the photos is a very dark Tibetan lambswool and although it's very full, I think it's absolutely perfect for her face sculpt. The only problem is, I don't see all the stray hairs in the photos until I've uploaded them and put the doll away, so apologies for all of those!!!
My friend sent her with this outfit as well as two others, so Sienna has some different clothing options until I can sew for her. I love her in these colours, I think they really suit her.
I believe these glass eyes are the ones she came with from Kaye.
I think in the past I read an interview with Kaye where she was asked where she got the inspiration for her sculpts and if I remember rightly she said that she sculpted the faces of the children she saw around her in her home country of Australia. If this is the case then she really is spot on with this one, she so reminds me of the little Aboriginal children that live down there in Oz, she's just gorgeous!!!
Have a great weekend everyone!
