Creature Court: the DollsJanuary 1st, 2012 at 17:08
I received an early Christmas present this year, courtesy of my mother Jilli, who is the artist behind the Deepings Dolls. Three dolls, one for each of my Creature Court book covers.
I’m only sad that I don’t have a hard copy of Book 3 to hand so I can photograph my scarlet flapper-with-sword like I have the other two!
First, we have Isangell the Duchessa, who appears on the cover of Power and Majesty [Creature Court Book One] in a gown with roses sewn all over it.
Then my main protagonist, Velody, who appears on the cover of The Shattered City [Creature Court Book 2] in an antique green dress, stolen from a museum.
In one deviation from the cover, I asked Mum to add some little brown mice to the hem of Velody’s gown.
And before introducing you to the third doll, let me remind you what the cover of Reign of Beasts [Creature Court Book 3] will look like:
And here she is, Livilla in a scarlet flapper dress, with sword. You have to read the book to find out why she’s bothering with edged weapons!
The three cover demoiselles together:
And finally, this is where they will be displayed, alongside my precious Blake’s 7 dolls which I commissioned as a gift to myself back when I sold this trilogy. Full circle, people!
