One of the least photographed dolls in my collection is Enoch. His white skin and the first cowl I made for him are incredibly difficult to photograph, at least for me. The dark brown fabric and white skin create such a contrast that my photography skills are not sufficient enough to capture the details of his face paint. I had planned to make a new habit for him for ages, a lighter one. And obviously postponed the plan for years.
But now I did it. And I spent hours on the embroidered Moonchild symbol on the chest. I am quite happy with the result. In addition to the color problem his face is not really photogenic, he can look tragic and mystical at certain angles and like a startled proteus when the angle isn’t right. I hope the olm-factor isn’t too obvious in this little gallery.
Monks and roses look nice together, don’t you think?
