100 years of independence of Poland

Long time no see! I should post here more often but I'm incredibly lazy. Right now I'm mostly active on Instagram - moonandthememories

Milan is proudly presents t-shirt with polish eagle. Wanted to make it similar to Zień's designs, as I find them very cool. He is one of my very few dolls with Polish ethnicity. Love him,he is beautiful, just wish he had dark brown hair and green eyes, like many Poles have.

Milan - this name was used in Poland and other Slavic countried hundreads years ago, before Christianity wiped away almost whole Polish culture and our original names. Right now this name is very rare in Poland but still very popular in Czech and other countries. I really hope it will be popular here to again one day.

Misty Day ooak doll

While I never watched any part of American Horror Story I really like style of Misty Day from Coven. Integrity Toys made many Coven doll but her, which is a shame in my opinion, as she sports amazing hippie style Stevie Nicks.
I decided to sew a few outfits inspired by some of Misty clothes. I'm planning to recreate 3 different looks of her, here is my attempt of recreating this outfit:

I don't have same looking fabrics so I used what I have.Top is in shape of butterfly, but it's hard to tell it from photos. Skirt is made of lace, upper part is lined. Under buttetfly top is stripe of elastic lace as a lace strapless bra. Hat is made of velvet. Floral shawl have over 70 tassels, each one is handmade (never again!). Scarf was handpainted in a pattern of American flag, it was very rushed and messy job so it looks terrible but have to do. The only part of outfit that wasn't made by my are shoes.

I'm sorry for posting so many photos!
Next time I will add photos of second outfit.
