Her name is Candy, and her favorite thing in the world is candy corn. She likes to have a little bucket of it with her wherever she goes.
Her favorite dress looks like a big piece of candy corn. It is sculpted from orange clay with an orange wool felt skirt trimmed with yellow and orange grosgrain ribbon. I used a vintage button and added a Swarovski crystal to give it some sparkle. Her collar is made from crepe paper.
Doesn't she have the sweetest face? I love her big brown eyes! I debated about her hair color--blond, strawberry blond, or brown. In the end, my husband and I agreed that the brown looked more like fall. I tucked a little white satin ribbon rose in her hair as a finishing touch.
I created Candy as a Halloween doll, but why couldn't you leave her out all year? At least through the fall season, up until Christmas.
My dad always loved candy corn--BRACHS candy corn, to be specific. Every time I see it or eat it, I think of him. I only buy it in the fall, when I know it's fresh and yummy. It just says 'fall' to me. YUM!
