Queenie has some new clothes. And since the dress looks a bit like those called “skater dress” I thought I’d make a skateboard for her. I have seen fingerboards, they are all over ebay, but they are just about 10cm long. Probably perfect for Barbies, but Queenie needs something a bit larger. My dream would have been to make her look like Ko Hyojoo, but all they have in common is their country of birth. Maybe I should have tried to hang Queenie somewhere to pose her on the board, but these pictures have to do ;).
First I cut the form and let it sit in warm water for a while. The material (wood pulp board) can be bent without breaking when wet. The wheels are cable sleeves I attached to a meat skewer. A pin and some silver spray later and it’s ready to roll. The black top is some glued on black foil.
Queenie will never be as elegant as Ko Hyojoo, but at least her dress looks nice 🙂
Roux complained, she wanted one too. A dress, I mean. Her’s is more of a long top.
