Mrs. ET?

I meant for this wire armature, papier-mache figure (3 posts below) to be an "art doll" with a painted face, hair, body, etc. I guess it still is an "art doll", but my painting efforts failed. Finishing her then brought forth new ideas like sculpted used tea bags, some loose tea from those bags, glass eyes, and a piece of stiffened cheesecloth. My grand-daughter would say she's "freaky"!

I love Ms. ET. I saw the original movie when it was new, and she would be a perfect partner for him. Lol.

Thanks for sharing and your continual inspiration.

Aloha,
Hunter

I find her very interesting. I think she is ET's little sister.

I think she looks like a newly discovered race from far away in the stars. She looks like she'd be good company.

She's even cuter on a second visit. I love her eyes and her little nose.

Thinking of you.
