Adelaide, a high-strung little girl with her pet cephalopod, Octavia, is Screatures doll #022. Dear little Adelaide has a secret she doesn't want anyone to discover. One look into her big, soulful sea green eyes and she can convince you she's just a quirky little girl. Aside from her shock of murky kelp green hair, that's just what she appears to be, but that hair is a clue to her mysterious oceanic ancestry.
Octavia, her mischievous pet octopus, should be another big clue! Sometimes she misses swimming with the sharks and riding on seahorse-back, and each step she takes feels like walking on needle points, but she's a happy little strangeling, regardless. Back to sea from time to time when the moon is bright and the tide is high to bring Adelaide all the news and gossip with glee.
She was a generic, unmarked nude and neglected doll when she found me. She stands 15cm or about 6 tall. A small, delightful size perfect for perching on your desk, bookshelf, or to fill a gap in a display cabinet. I've brightened and lashed her eyes, given her a new faceup and hair transplant of mohair.She wears a hand sewn pure silk tatty hemmed frock with lace details, a crochet lace petticoat, a satin ribbon sash with silk ribbon bow at her waist, striped stockings, silk ribbons in her hair and black velvet shoes. No part of the outfit is remobable. Octavia has squirted ink onto Adelaide's pretty clothes just because she's wicked although it's just her way of being playful. She too been spruced up from her past as a generic animal toy. I'm enamoured with her copper-toned eyes and highlights! The display stand is included, handmade by me. It's a wooden base on wooden legs, with wooden boards, stained by the naughty octopus. Moss creeps over the surface and has nestled in the cracks. Metal'arms' hold Adelaide up. You can gently remove and replace her in the stand. She does stand alone with a bit of patience. Her head and legs move but her arms are only gently posable, enoughto hold onto her pet's rope lead. Octavia is also free to move off the stand. This charming duo will be an interesting and unusual addition to your doll collection. She is an art doll, designed for display only. She is not a toy, nor is she suitable for children. Thank you for viewing my creation. If you have any questions or comments please message me xox.
