As to Fae in general I like the dark dangerous side of them and I want to try and express that through my dolls. But my dolls being what they are tend to evolve by themselves and turn out completely different to what I imagined. As it was for the three dolls I've made for the challenge, I made a mermaid, a Fae and a witch. Now why a witch in a Fae challenge, well I like witches they are magical and some work with Fae. Like Fae they can also walk the line between light and dark.

Rue was supposed to be a bit darker especially with the skulls on her dress but she ended up a bit sweet. And she does have a rather adorable familiar which is a bat called Norman, who she keeps on a chain as he nibbled through his original leather leash and collar.

Next we have Genny a mermaid, mermaids are a water sprite or elemental, and have their dark side of luring sailors to their deaths. Genny was fun to make as I bought myself an inspiration pack and used the materials in it to make her.

Now the last doll is Fae and her name is Nyra, her body is made from silk as well as her tunic. She's a more simply dressed doll and she did nearly have wings but they didn't suit her.

Nyra is carrying something special we aren't sure what is as she won't say only that it can be found in Fae, in a dark enchanted forest. I think I'd like to visit the enchanted forest but I might need a sword and a few fellow travellers to help, like a wizard, an elf and maybe a dwarf.
