Goblin Girl and Dragonfly

Well, I started this little girl as a special request from an Etsy customer, but in the end the customer could only afford one Goblin and so since she had already purchased Lime Goblin and Flower, she had to leave Goblin Girl behind. But, that is okay, because I think she is cute enough that someone will see her and want to adopt her. Plus, I love this pair and I have them displayed on my dining room hutch. They really make me smile. When ever I do a baby or little girl..which I have actually only completed two now, they look so much like Bailey that it's hard for me to part with them. Ha, when I say they look so much like her, I don't mean to say my one year old is green with horns...Although she has entered Tantrum phase and sometimes I think she could sprout horns any moment now. I just mean that Bailey's eyes and expressions seem to make it into my creations.

I made this Goblin with the intention of making her the same size as Baby and Rag Doll, but she is my biggest Goblin to date. Her Dragonfly alone is 6" long. I loved making the Dragonfly and I think I will branch off with maybe mobiles or something like that. When taking pictures of it outside the Wings just dazzled in the sunlight. It was amazing!

Since Goblin girl was so large and gangly, I had to reinforce her legs and arms with wire. Grrrrr. Have I mentioned I hate wire? It always costs me atleast three needles per creation. Oh well, this pair was worth the three needles I had to scarafice.

The Colors of Goblin Girl were requested by the customer who had wanted her. She has soft leaf green skin, a soft mernio and white tummy and awesome mixed purple hair! Two tone horns and a blue and teal Dragonfly!100_20422close
