Steampunk Softies: Scientifically-Minded Dolls from a Past that Never Was is a collection of eight delightfully quirky figures made with fun bits of hardware. As a special treat, Andrews McMeel is sharing one of these projects with us: Marveletta O’ Houlihan, pictured above. From the project intro:
Marveletta, the Steampunk Lady, has plenty of natural breeding: her neat little collar, smartly tailored clothing, and exquisitely detailed opera glasses tell you that this is not a girl to be trifled with. She’s not as tough to make as you might imagine – despite her polish and a plethora of well-bred accessories, she rests on a surprisingly solid and simple base, and the apparent complexity comes with the addition of a few details.
