My Other Creations: Ophelia

I am endlessly inspired by literature, Shakespeare being no exception.  And how tragic is Ophelia??  Pining away for the distracted Hamlet until she goes a little loopy and falls or jumps into the river.  Not how I'd want my life to pan out.  In any event, I wanted to pay homage to her, so here she is.  Her head and arms are made from Sculpey Clay, her hair is made out of yarn, and her clothes are a mix of chiffon and organza that I stretched and ripped and sewed at angles for shape and texture.  Her wings are made from dissolvable paper that I colored and stitched before dissolving.

Here's a full length shot of her:
