So, it all started with the box that holds the whole thing. I don't why, when I saw it I instantly thought about the little altars to the Virgin Mary, Maria of Guadeloupe, etc. I don't particularly worship or follow anything, I just like the more traditional, Mexican religious art.
Then, while I was cleaning (more like excavating, haha) my room, I found random scraps of chain, beads, pearls, broken jewelry, lost pendants, etc. - things people might leave behind on an altar. I then gathered a barbie doll, some looser, cloth-ee barbie clothes (like big, open skirts or capes, wedding veils, whatever you have) and then arranged them around the doll as I liked, glued and rubber-banded.
Slowly, the idea/image evolved in my head and I remembered Jezebel's tale (naughty queen of Israel who was tossed out of her window to be eaten by dogs - all that was left of her was her feet, hands, and skull! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jezebel) and decided to run with it.
No on builds an altar to Jezebel, right? Haha.
Anyways, this evolved and took shape over a night ( I still haven't gone to sleep yet e--e ) and by about.. noon the next day, it was finished. I hand beaded all of the dangly things (except for the gold danglies on the bottom of the inner-box) and had a somewhat tough time figuring out how to attach her box to the big box - she only has legs down to about her knees, haha. Overall, I'm very pleased with all of it!

Hope you like ittt.
