When I first saw the DIM Youra head I knew I had to have her, even though I wasn't sure what I was going to do with her. However, the more I looked at her, the easier it became to see who she would become . . . a sprite or more precisely a water spirit.
My first step was to purchase a body for her, a Luts Romantic Kid Delf. Then a wig and some very special eyes, not blue, nor green, but a combination of both.
As my thoughts turned to creating this water spirit, I gave her a name . . . Ondine.
Then a purpose . . . to direct the flow and course of the earth's water.
She would live in the waters of Elvin Forest and become a Guardian of the streams and the babbling brooks that meandered through it.
In my mind, Ondine's clothing had to shimmer just like the sun dancing on a lake and should be the colour of the sea. Soon the search for fabric was underway. I was lucky to find exactly what I was looking for quite quickly and as the idea continued to grow, the sewing began.
Fortunately, I had a lovely watery backdrop that would do to show you the first stage of Ondine's very special clothes.
