{BLACK BAROQUE LUXURIES} The Belle of the Ball and a Voodoo Doll...

{VOODOO DOLL DETAIL}



  {BELLE OF THE BALL}

This elegant yet ominous Belle of the Ball Doll was inspired by Baudelaire’s poem “Danse Macabre”. A vision of a resplendent skeletal maiden corseted in a decrepit flowing gown…

A collage of vintage jewelry (including a lovely Victorian filigree dress clip) was used to create an intricate corset and hourglass waist. Wearing a tattered and decrepit ball gown of silk and lace, this deathly doll is shrouded in mystery and decay. Her face, a gilded death mask, is framed by locks of black fringe and a veil of tulle. A set of wicked pins, glittering obsidian and pearl surround her red heart…
