New Work-Zoey half bunny half steampunk soul

Meet Zoey, half bunny, half steampunk soul. Zoey never wanted to be a pirate, but it's what her family did. That is until the Evil Soul Sucker invaded. Her brother snuck her off the ship late one night, firmly planting the helmet on her head and the gun in her waistband. Zoey hasn't seen her family since. She's joining the rebellion in hopes to see the pirate ship again, she hates to admit it but she misses it.
Zoey is 14" tall x 4" wide x 2 1/2" deep. She is hand sculpted from paper clay over an armature. Her arms and legs are slightly poseable. The parts of her that are bunny are white flocking. She is hand painted in layers, then sealed with a matte finish. She has a watch part for her right eye, and a vintage enameled watch face on her chest. Her clothes are hand stitched and not removable. Her helmet is made of a vintage watch tin, wind up part of a watch, a found chain, and is not removable. The steampunk gun is removable. She is titled, signed and dated.
and yup you guessed it, she's available in my etsy shop! http://www.etsy.com/listing/79904333/gothic-art-doll-steampunk-souls-bunny 
I started off trying to make a smaller doll that would be more affordable in our current times, but even though she's a wee bit smaller she took me every bit of 3 full days to complete. I did lower her price a bit from the other dolls to help buyers out for now. I think she's one of my favorites so far ;o) I don't know if I got the obsession from the Alice doll I did, or I saw these cute bunny paintings on etsy by

Of course originally I had her sketched out in more of an armor type of outfit, and she just wasn't having it, she's a victorian lady...er...bunny pirate all the way ;o) Hope everyone is having a great week! (someone asked me about the ornaments, in the other post, if you see one you like just email me at michelel@michelelynchart.com and I can send you a paypal invoice or answer any questions you have. The two grim reapers are sold.) xo Michele
