Wednesday the Dog and the Monster

Photo taken after a delirious barking episode (she never barks)

She sees the Monster:
Wednesday the Dog Meets the Monster

She fears its huge eyes and floating capabilities
Looking at the Monster

Friends
Friends

She still gives it cautious looks but the barking has subsided. Now our friend can live out his deflating short life in our parlour
monsterhome

She was a mess for days. I had to do therapy sessions with her and pretend it was a toy. At times we had to take it out of the room. The first time she saw it she went into a rage. We thought there was someone out side the window. She wasn't looking at it so we could figure out what she was freaking out at first.

Elizabeth Lavenza Frankenstein Doll

Handmade and painted. She has clay arms and legs and a stuffed torso. She is draped with antique lace. She is 15 inches. She is now for sale on my etsy store. Thanks for looking folks!

More about her:
Elizabeth Lavenza Frankenstein Cousin, adopted sister, and eventually wife of Victor Frankenstein. Frankenstein describes her character:
"She was docile and good tempered, yet gay and playful as a summer insect. Although she was lively and animated, her feelings were strong and deep, and her disposition uncommonly affectionate. No one could better enjoy liberty, yet no one could submit with more grace than she did to constraint and caprice. Her imagination was luxuriant, yet her capability of application was great. Her person was the image of her mind; her hazel eyes, although as lively as a bird's, possessed an attractive softness. Her figure was light and airy; and, though capable of enduring great fatigue, she appeared the most fragile creature in the world. While I admired her understanding and fancy, I loved to tend on her, as I should on a favourite animal; and I never saw so much grace both of person and mind united to so little pretension."
