Cyra, the Summer Fairy

The last of the four season fairies is complete!  And unlike Ione and Lumi, this girl's makeover gave me no trouble whatsoever.  It was a welcome relief and a lot of fun!

The doll I chose for the summer fairy is a 1997 Ariel.  I decided to name her Cyra, which is a Persian name that means "sun."  

This is what our sunny girl looked like when she first got to my house:

Lumi, the Winter Fairy

Well, that took longer than I'd hoped.  A few things happened while I was in the middle of this doll's makeover.  The best thing that happened was that I got a new dog!  He's a rescue dog, though, so he came to me scared and in the habit of peeing everywhere, so it took about a week of non-stop attention for me to make him feel at home.  He's awesome, though, and I can't blame him for the delay in my work!  Mostly it was problems with making all of the elements of this fairy come together and coordinate.  I'll tell you all about it.

But you've been waiting long enough already, so I'll cut the chatter and get started.  Here's the winter fairy as she looked when she came into my house:
