"EHAG-EMPORIUM" this Month

Soon the "EHAG~Emporium" will be here with all its wonderful Halloween goodness! I would like everyone to meet my newest character for this months Emporium: "Masquerade". This is my little gypsy mouse Esmeralda. She measures all of 11 inches tall and is made from dyed and distress muslin with a stitched, painted face and clay accents.  She is mounted on top a wood base and has pos-able arms
Her skirt is a multi-colored satiny fabric over a  dyed muslin petticoat. Her blouse is from a vintage white feedsack and she's wearing a taffeta vest. Around her waist is black wool fringe and a cluster of brightly colored ribbon.  The same ribbons are
clustered at the top of her head along with layers of black sheep wool hair that falls to her shoulders.  Her ears are are wool and one has a gold wire earring.  Esmeralda wears layers of iridescent beads around her neck and carries her glittery/ feathery mask on a silver wired staff.  She is ready to dance her way through the Halloween Masquerade as she plays her tambourine! 

"Masquerade" will be available April 30th at 9pm EST on the "EHAG~Emporium"contact me at: softinthehead@gmail if you have any questions!

Can't tell you how much I love that tambourine mouse! I have my very own tambourine so she's speaking my language! You are something!
