1875-80 Robe à la Polonaise/ Part 2
Marie Antoinette vous embrasse!
So the Polonaise Gown is finished! I already showed you some pics i made in my last post, when the gown was still not pulled into the polonaise. Also i choose to do a more natural hairstyle for the first part.
I got a lot of nice feedback on my account on flickr from you, my readers and i´m very happy about it! I see that there are so many talented people out there in the doll-world!
Now for Part 2 Marie Antoinette is back in all her high-hair Rococo Glory! I added ruffles on the bottom and i had to play around a bit with the polonaise. Since everything is so much smaller in this scale the fabric moves different. But i´m happy with the outcome.
She wears the bumroll (to which i already gave the pattern out) and a very simple underskirt. There is a Corset worked into the Bodice with steel-boning. I find this to be necessary to keep the skirt into palce and the waist slim. Also it gives the gown a more realistic `Rococo`- look with a flat chest.

The pics are taken with Hipastamatic in my little doll-foto-studio, which is basicly just a light box made out of cardboard. I got the floor and the wallpaper-pattern somewhere on the net and just printed it out. I used Barbie Basics Model Nr. 01.
So i don`t know when i will be back! My holiday is almost over and i have a lot of work to do.
Also i am into BJD-research right now (it`s like sience!)! I never wanted to get into it because i really expensive and i adore Barbie but when i did research about doll costumes on the Internet all the gowns and pics i liked where on BJD`s! I think i´m ready for the next scale...
So if any BJD addict is reading this: I would be very happy about a contact into this world! I have so many questions!
Be kind to one another....
