Fairy of the Earth

This is Yeru, a normal skin, large-bust Peak's Woods ball-jointed doll. She is the fairy of the earth.

This outfit is 100% no-sew. I started with the brown sequin trim and pins. I wrapped it around for some sort of modesty (with moderate success) and stuck in a few pins. Next, I wove two shades of tiny ribbon around one arm and tied a bow on her wrist.

The chiffon trim came from the trim section at Joann Fabric. I purposely use a variety of browns (or whatever color I am doing) for my monochromatic outfits to give a feeling of depth. The chiffon was a little hard to pin, especially around her leg. I haven't sanded or blushed Yeru's body yet, so I used a little removable tape to hold a few of the leg wraps in place.

Yeru is wearing a Monique Gold wig called Tori. I pulled up a section and tied it off with long ribbon to complete her look.

  1. Your elemental fairies series is beautifully done. Each one is so pretty, and yet so different from one another, as befits the elements.
