Art Doll ~ Naomi

Naomi was sooo excited to score a couple of passes to this year's Mercedes-Benz Fashion week. And she was so proud of the outfit she wore to the event because she practically made it herself! Inspiration struck when Naomi visited the Alexander McQueen exhibit at the MET last month. She was so taken by one particular outfit at the exhibit that she just had to re-create it for herself!

She made the skirt using some vintage ruffled lace curtains she found in her mother's attic years ago. Sewing the panels on an angle was quite a challenge but in the end it came out perfect! Then, using an inexpensive pair of comfy black boots (and some super strong fabric glue) she added clusters of leather flowers purchased on Etsy. It ended up being way too hot to wear a leather vest (which she's had since 7 years ago!) so she wore a simple black 3/4 sleeve light cotton turtle neck with a black belt. She finished off her outfit with gold circle themed accessories including a gold leather hobo - her only splurge!

Naomi stands 12 14" tall and is made almost completely of paper including her body, clothing, hair and accessories. Her hair is made from dozens of individually painted strands of paper twists. Visit my Art Dolls page for more information on construction.

If you would like to dress in an outfit similar to Naomi's, almost everything can be purchased on ETSY through the following links to 6 different shops.
