Elizabeth of York+Tudor Dynasty Portrait by LadyAquanine73551 Elizabeth of York+Tudor Dynasty Portrait by LadyAquanine73551
Here's another fine lady from the famous Tudor Dynasty Portrait. Creating the headdress felt almost the same in difficulty to the original picture I made of Elizabeth of York, though in this 1, her lappets were longer. I had to make some of the ermine on her dress using pearls & black beads, & I'm not sure if it looks right, but at least the picture shows you what I was doing.

I'm sorry to say that Elizabeth of York was probably deceased when this painting was done, b/c she died several years before her son, Henry VIII ascended the throne, & Jane Seymour was definitely dead by then, b/c the painting shows the king as the gigantic monarch we all know from his later years.

I made this using the Tudors Scene-Maker www.dolldivine.com/the-tudors-… on Doll Divine.

Thank you very much :)

Ah, it took me probably an hr, I don't remember :shrug:. It's just, I got tired of no gable-hood headdresses in the "Tudors" scene-maker, so I just said "heck with it" & made my own out of beads. I also used the painting on the right to help with proportions & remembering the shape around the doll's head.

This image, tho, was easier b/c I'd already done a picture of Elizabeth of York w/ an early Tudor gable-hood headdress. I think they're actually prettier than the later styles Catherine of Aragon & Jane Seymour wore. They're also a unique headdress for Renaissance England. You don't see these anywhere else in Europe during this time period.

Thanks. I tend not to give up if I know something can be done, no matter how long it takes. There have been a few occasions where I had to quit with other dolls, or the power went out, or I hit the X button by mistake O_o.

If you look at English styles from the mid-1400s-late 1500s, you can really see the Medieval styles evolve into the Renaissance ones. I like how long & flowy the women's dresses were. The clothes looked way too stuffy during Elizabeth's reign. I mean, whose bright idea was it to put those awful ruffs around people's necks?
