New Ghostie "Pietra Lorrie"

Well finally..after an entire day of trying to load images..and being told I can't ...I have them on!! yeah!! (too frustrating)!!
This is my latest Ghostie..Pietra Lorrie...I usually have a name for a doll right off, but I struggled a bit with this one,.. and had wanted to name her something else, and she just didn't want it.
When I was sculpting her, she kept looking like the old actor Peter Lorrie..and I thought ..the poor dear..she looks like Peter Lorrie... then,. Volia.. Yes.. ..Pietra Lorrie..was born.. Fortunatly,.. when she was painted, she took on her on little personality.! "Poor Little Pietra Lorrie....Her end was a bit gorey,
Were not sure..but have a hunch.. her pet alligator ate her for lunch!
Poor Little Pietra Lorrie...!
Pietra is just over 12" with her bonnet and has antique materials used in her attire. Her pet alligator, with the slight underbite, is sculpted of polymer clay, and has sculpted wheels and wooden teeth...(all the better to eat you with))!! YuMMY!!

She has tiny sculpted skull buttons on her bonnet and her shoes.( a fashion statement of the times) the new" in" fashion, statement!!!

Poor little "Pietra" , is packed and on her way to her new haunted home..may she rest in Peace...
Happy Haunted Holidaze!!!

Thanks Everyone..glad you like her!! I had seen a victorian photo of a girl with a pet alligator and I thought what a strange and perfect pet for a little ghostie girl! I didn't want to sculpt legs so made it a pull toy instead.
Happy Hauntings, Gail

Pietra is absolutely precious!! I love her little gator friend too. She must be from the bayou, only a southern gal would have a pet gator.

Happy Holidays Gail!
