New Ghostie on ebay..Finally!

I've had the energy of a Slug lately..exhausted from dealing with mum's brain hemmorage on dec 31....not conducive to creative energy to say the least! But... I've manage to get one new Ghostie finished(although not what it originally started out to be..isn't that the way it happens)

This is Isabella, my first red haired Ghostie!
"When the carnival sideshow came to town, Isabella thought she might see a clown!
But, instead..she saw a shrunken head, and an army of the living dead! but her favorite was her souvenir dolly of "Pip" the pin head"!!! Isabella is on auction on ebay, here is her linkhttp://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=180327969609 if this doesn't get you there just type in..ooak lackey ghost doll..should get you there! Let me know if you have trouble.
Isabella is around 12" tall freestanding, Antique fabrics mixed with vintage laces and hand dyed silks. My first red haired Ghostie, I love the pale greyish blue pallor of her skin ..it matches her ghostly greyish blues in her shroudy tattered costume! She wears my signature baby skull button in her velevet ribbon head bow, with anitque millinary cranberry tattered trim . Cranberry antique velvet coat /dress.
She has handpainted blueish grey glass eyes..all the better to haunt you with!

I apologize, again,.. to those of you that I am behind on, awards, e-mails, etc..forgive me for being so slow, I'm crawling as fast as I can!!!
I am also working on some smaller less expensive pieces that i hope soon to list in an Etsy shop.
Happy Hauntings, Gail!!!

Oh my gosh - little Pip is such a great touch, Gail. The garments are amazing as always. By the way, I hadn't had a chance to tell you congratulations on the Japan show. That is a big deal! I can't wait to hear more about it. Warmest wishes for great success there.

Gail, Isabella is fantastic and the addition of Pip is brilliant! What a marvellous imagination you have (and what talent to express your ideas).

Wonderful to see another ghostie from you and I'm looking forward to seeing you on Etsy!

Is your mom doing any better?

Hugs,

Sue

Gail I wish I could own one of your incredible dollies :-(
it will have to wait, until I win a lottery, lol!

Gail Lackey said...

Thanks for the kind comments everyone! Glad you like Isabella and her Pinhead Pip. I found an old sideshow postcard that had a photo of Pip and her twin sister Flip on it and thought it would be fun to have a dolly like that...at least Isabella thought it would be fun!
Happy hauntings, Gail

She's ace! I kind of had this fantasy that you had this eccentric rich patron who supported you while you filled up their house with your amazing ghosties... or that they all went to a darkened gallery or private museum somewhere. They just seem way too exotic for EBAY!!!

Hope your mum is on the mend and can't wait to see the Etsy shop :o)

Julie-ann said...

Oh wow! I know you said you liked my art! Your dolls are amazing! Totally love'em! I am so pleased I can see your dolls! Going to show my daughters tomorrow, i know the y will like them. I bet they make a room seem so much more.

Sprite said...

Sprite
