The Stepsisters

One day the King of all the land gave a great ball for his son, the Prince. The stepmother and her daughters were invited, and were soon busily planning what they would wear, and how they would dress their hair. Decked out in their finest gowns and ready to go to the ball, the beautiful but wicked stepsisters fight over the royal invitation. The younger one pulls her sister's dress and elbows her in the back, while the older one taunts her with the invitation.

Media: Head, hands and felt of Super Sculpey, on a wire armature, with a cloth bodies. White mohair hairstyles with feathers ribbons and beads. Wearing lace-edged ruffled slips and panniers to hold out the skirts. Both gowns are of assorted fine fabrics, laces, lame, ribbon, flower petals and beads.
