Lots of dolls and clothes!
Every year at the Quilt Fest, the Treasures of the Gypsies booth sponsors a doll making contest. These are the stunning results of this year’s entry pool.
The second I saw this little guy, he stole my heart. It is called “Flying Fox” and it took every ounce of strength I had to not pick him up and hug him to death.
This older gentleman is so insanely detailed and intricate; I thought it was a photo when I first saw him.
I love this steampunk flyer. I couldn’t get over all of the specific details on his contraption. Even his coat is well made. I think what really sold me were the goggles and the lace up boots.
The workmanship on the troll tree thing is amazing. The texture is simply perfect.
This is the first place winner this year. The dress looks like spun ice in person and the details on the sleeve make it look like they are rippling in the wind.
OK, now to toot my own horn. I took home the first place award for the Wearable Art division with my entry “Composition”. Yay me!
I wasn’t able to get pictures of all of the other entries, but I did get the third and second place winners.
