a picture showing her wearing the sword and dagger
both the sword and dagger can be taken out of their holders. the finished bow, arrows and holder for the arrows
I have been a little busy and pre-occupied with this new art doll recently…she is still not finished, but I thought I would give a sneak preview of her. She is a hunter of the hunters…and has yet to have her various hunting equipment attached – which is why there are loose straps hanging from her back, she also needs another wrist band, big boots and her hair done..having lots of fun. As soon as she is finished I promise to return to the stitches! and do more art work!
