Samantha's Winter Cape and Gaiters

More of Samantha's outfits on my Etsy shop  www.etsy.com/shop/prairiewindgirls 

The wind is blowing very cold here in Colorado....so it was time to make a warm cape for Samantha, and gaiters....which were worn over shoes to keep the ankles warm in Victorian times. I think she needs a hat!!!!

Kirsten's Summertime Accesory Set

Check out more clothes and accessories for Kirsten on my Etsy Shop  www.etsy.com/shop/prairiewindgirls
It was summertime, 1854, and Kirsten had found a honey tree....and all that wonderful, sweet honey helped to get her a new straw hat.  There were only 31 States in 1854, so the flag looked much different.  Kirsten always carried her whistle that Papa had carved, just in case there was trouble!!!

New Girl....

I needed a new doll to be my model for my new Steampunk Line.....so I went looking on Ebay....got one really cheap.....but she was in really bad shape.  Very much loved and played with.  She came, and I should have taken pictures of her before I cleaned her up....First, she had layers and layers of make-up.  She sparkled!!!!  Got all that off, and an all over bath, then to get the layers and layers of nail polish on fingers and toes.  Now to tackle the hair.  At some point, it looks like she was re-wigged, but it was a bad wig, and it had been cut, and was missing about half the hair.  Here are pics....

So the wig came off, and I found a really cute short, blond bob on-line....will post pictures later...she came out really cute.....I was gonna name her Steampunk Annie....but there already is a doll online with that name....so came up with Steampunk Kassy.  My neighbor, growing up always called me Kassy instead of Cathy....and Steven said she looked alot like me when I got her all done....so Kassy it is!!!!
