My Special Day of the Dead Couple.

I made this awesome couple in the Spring of 2015 but I never really showed wips or good final pics so I thought today was perfect to do that, being Day of the Dead and all!


The beginning stages are always so fun!



These quick sketches are all I have of the start of these dolls. I wanted to make a pair of eternal lovers who weren't able to be together in life be can now spend eternity together.




I also only have this beginning wip pic. For some reason I just didn't take any pis of these being done, that I can find.


 Sewing on her hair. (Ignore my unmade bed, my studio was in my bedroom then).



Hair done and flowers sewn in.

And finally the veil attached.



I finally got some beauty shots in my light box so you can really see the detail.



 Side view of Estella with veil and bouquet.



Side view of Ernesto with his sombrero and guitar. 


Close up of Estella's Face. Don't have on like this of Ernesto.



His guitar and her bouquet.



The lovers together! Ernesto is 17.5 inches tall and Estella is 17 inches tall. They are available in my shop. Here's a link to the listing where you can see more photos.

Love your Dia de los Muertos couple, great detail and color choices. Day of the dead is one of my favorite celebrations. I also wrote a blog post about it today.
Cheers Amiga!
