Over at my doll group, Art Dolls Only we are having a Burlesque challenge. This is my doll, Can-Can Candy.
She is 12" high, all cloth. Her face is hand-painted and she has brunette mohair locks. She has black net hose, cute little black silk shoes with a silk rose bud, Swarovski crystal stamen and green ribbon.
She wears a 3-layer skirt (white cotton petticoat, acid-green china silk underskirt, and a hot pink silk crepe skirt) all with flounces. She has a white cotton corset and drawer set (the corset shows at the top, as do her nipples, if you check carefully !!! This is Burlesque, after all :)). Her bodice is a paler pink silk crepe with some little silk roses about the waist.
The waist has a multi-color braided silk tie with fringe. She has a hot pink matching hat with a braided sash.
She is holding her skirt up as she kicks up her leg, so you can see her underthings. I think she is having too much fun, don't you?
