Kadira wears a
stunning gown of ivory cotton and gold metallic lace, fastened
asymmetrically at the shoulder and descending into dozens of tiers of dramatic
ruffles to the floor. The dress is complimented by gold pumps, removable gold
tulle "gloves" and a gathered cape edged in lace trim and closed at
the front with a black bias cut poly-chiffon ribbon.
The face-up is
hand painted and lashes hand applied, and the wig's waves were created by heat
setting dozens of small braids. A stunning ball-jointed (bjd) 13" tall, 1/6" scale, with 15 points of articulation for
sheer range of motion.
Ophelia was created by Andrew Yang, a doll collector and doll artist - filmmaker based in Los Angeles and New York.
