This is Calypso, Sea Goddess, captor and lover of Odysseus. This is a OOAK Blythe collaboration doll between me and Amy Taylor
She was a really fun doll to do. She was originally a Simply Lilac. I gave her a mohair reroot in about 5 different shades of blue, green and black. She has a velvet gown that is halter styled and drops down over the hips in a frond-like pattern, bellowing out in voluminous blue and green tulle.
Her jewels are by Amy. She has a sterling silver trident, a fish armband, and a crown with 2 shades of fresh water pearls. Her pull charms are sea glass and silver with pearl. She has a silver-plate caviar dish throne with lime green velvet beaded cushions.
She left today to be her new owner. Aye, aye, Calypso. Gentle seas.
