I'm so excited about this I've decided to be naughty and make a new discussion thread for her as Carrie is busy with various doll and miniature shows. Thistledown has still to be approved by the mods so please be aware the thread may be locked if deemed unsuitable. Little baby Thistledown is the newest member of Carrie/Tinybear/Sleeping Elf's Witley Woods Elves collection. She is pukipuki sized, baby/toddler like in appearance, will be available in all Bobobie resin shades, and will for a limited edition be available with a human head as well as an elf eared one. Height: around 10.5-11cm Eye size: unknown but probably 8-10mm Head circumf.:unknown but probably 4inches Foot size: 1.9cm (apparently) She was born of Carrie's ideas, my sketches, and Bobobie's sculpting and casting skills and they've made a wonderful job of translating all those things into reality!! This is the initial sketch I sent to Carrie in March 2009 and the updated face sketches I sent her a few months ago when Thistle went into preproduction .......and the actual first photos courtesy of Dennis at Bobobie of the actual doll herself!! Her little chubby feet Inside of head which will have headcap magnets Back view Side view..I'm so glad they kept the slightly arched back to give her that toddler stance!!
