Ella Saturday











Here is 'Ella Saturday'. This is the doll I made for the Doll Street Dreamers Discworld Challenge. The Discworld series was written by Terry Pratchett, and before the challenge, I was totally unfamiliar with his work. A bit of hurried research (bless you, google!) and I discovered the character of 'Ella Saturday' who is a minor character in 'Witches Abroad'. I was taken with the description of Ella as a kind of alternative-reality Cinderella with dark skin and pale hair and decided she was the gal for me. She is also known as 'Emberella' or 'Embers' and unlike her Brothers Grimm forbear, she actually liked her position!
I have also posted an update of 'Ophelia' with all the finishing touches completed - they were quite minor - you may not notice!

Oooh, I love all the textures on Ella, along with the color scheme. Makes me want to touch her! Once again, gorgeous work! Ophelia is fabulous. Looks like you warmed her up a bit, or is it the lighting? You sure have been crankin', busy lady. :o)
