Swan lake ballerina and mini ballerinas too!

It is funny how I can at times have the *exactly* idea of what I am making and then at other times I am clueless until the sculpt is ready to be costumed.
Alyss became Swan Lake but when i was sculpting her I was thinking of a ballet teacher in a class room setting . When I added her black hair ... I had no other thoughts than make her like a ballerina ready to perform....

Ballet and ballerinas are dear to my heart. I danced professionally for the Miami Ballet Company.... YEARS ago that is for sure, grin, but I can tell you that the joy and memories *never* left my mind and heart . making ballerinas figurines is a true joy for me specially at this scale that requires so much patience , time and effort.
The reason I came up with Ballerinas for this time was because since Feb I have been listening once a week to Classical ballet music . I am working on my Christmas items to build up an inventory and the music was so lovely .... my thoughts were ...mmmmm... dancing....grin








Vanessa is so tiny and darling..... she measures only 2" tall, but she is full of personality. I just love her little profile because she has a perfect little nose!*grin*













Olivia is holding her thoughts to her self. She has hopes to be a *real*ballerina one day ....
