She is a tad bit taller than the other Monster High dolls and has larger feet (which is annoying as that means she can't share shoes with her sister or the other ghouls: -( But HER shoes are OMG amazing!) I'll try to post pics of those tomorrow!
I decided that Nefera was too pretty to be single...she strikes me as the type to always have a man on her arm. Since I had an extra 2010 Harley Ken lying around I figured I'd try them together! LOVE THEM!
Nefera might be self absorbed, demanding, a tad narcissistic, but underneath it she is loyal and loving...to those she deems worthy! And while Ken adores her and makes it appear he worships the ground she walks on, Ken is no push-over. Who'd have thought a "normie" would be perfect for Nefera!
While I'm not normally a fan of unusual shades of lipstick, this regal teal is stunning on Nefera! I am still debating on cleaning up her lower lip to bring the paint more up to the natural lip line.
She has gorgeous lavender eyes that remind me of Liz Taylor. Hmm I wonder if it's a coincidence since one of Liz's most iconic roles was that of Cleopatra! Either way with her luscious shimmery sun-kissed skin, fabulous make-up and stunning eyes Nefera has quickly become my favorite!
I definitely need to finish my sculpting and sewing commissions as I desperately want to build some furniture that is more properly scaled to both the Monster High and Barbie dolls! I love this chaise, but honestly any doll over about 8 inches looks silly on it! (Not to mention Nefera said pink is NOT her color AT all!!!)
My latest bout of insanity (as my oldest child says) involved sculpting miniature Peeps, both Bunny and Chick versions. I have since molded them to allow for quicker production. Ironically the bunny was more of a hassle to sculpt than the chick!

I have been commissioned to do a fancy meal for two, for my friend April over at April's Sea of Barbie Sweetness. Dinner will start with a 'yet to be determined' appetizer, then a green salad (shown half way down the page HERE.) Then we move onto the main course. It will feature bacon wrapped filet mignon, a broiled lobster tail, green beans almondine, and a loaded baked potato. I started the potatoes today and it's a multi-step process but I am loving the way they look so far!
Here are the spuds naked with a colored pencil for scale. The potatoes will get dressed with a light drizzle of melted butter, a sprinkled of cheddar cheese, a lovely crumble of crispy bacon, a dollop of sour cream and a smattering of chives! They are proving to be labor intensive, but I am absolutely loving how they are looking. Hopefully I won't mess them up at any stage of the dressing!
So that's what I've been up to, in a nut shell. See y'all soon...hopefully! ;-)
