Altered Doll - Goth Victorian

Here is my first altered doll. This one scared my kids! My son came up from my workshop last week saying the baby head scared him (it was drying). The head is from a dollar store vinyl baby. The body is a Perrier Bottle. I removed baby's head, painted her mauve, added tissue paper and flowers to the head. I then paper mached the head and arms onto the bottle (bottle filled with rice for weight). When hardened, I gessoed the body and used tissue paper and paint. Her dress is an antique lace collar, the necklace was being tossed by my daughter. I like her long neck! I'm calling her Fleur.
