The girl with attitude goes first

This is the face I was not in love with, I really did want to make a Santos with a angelic face and in it's place I got attitude. I can work with attitude so she was first of the three to be put together.
Her main body is an old shoe stretcher, her legs are the handles of a croquet mallet, and she stands on a antique phone box. Even her body says she has attitude.

I love the way the shoe form defines the shape of her body.

She sports the latest twirl skirt made up from yard sticks, folding and cloth wheel measuring tapes, this she wears low on her hip. She embellishes her outfit with a Dixon pencil and wire necklace.
She knows she can measure up to anyone!

I'm happy how the "Girl with Attitude" turned out and I think she is happy with herself as well.

Wowza! You have a fertile and wildly creative mind. I love where you have taken your Santos dolls and how you have used so many reclaimed materials.
