Handmade Day of the Dead Calavera Art Doll

Item Description

Madalena is a one-of-a-kind Day of the Dead style doll, stitched from an original Itinerant Bizarrium pattern.  Five layers of paint plus accents of pastel chalk and pencil, and an oil glaze combine to create a unique texture and look.

With her Calavera sugar skull looks, Madalena is the glamourous face of Goth.  She can sit on a shelf with your other dark treasures, or be displayed upon a wall thanks to the small brass ring stitched to her back.

Standing 12 1/2" (32cm) tall, Madalena wears a skirt of the softest ivory vintage cotton, embroidered and embellished with tiny sequins. Her bodice is fashioned from vintage lace, and a blood red paper rose nestles in her bone-white crewel wool hair. Her arms, which do move, are stitched in place with strong linen thread through mother-of-pearl buttons.

The Itinerant Bizarrium is an alternative realm of Goth-tinged character dolls, each handmade by me from start to finish.  With hand-painted faces and wearing unrepeatable vintage finds, no two can ever be quite the same.

Madelena will arrive carefully boxed along with her personal storybook, ready for gifting or simply spoiling yourself.
