OK, so it’s time to share my attempt to create Wanda Maximoff / Elisabeth Olsen inspired doll. This piece took me forever – I had to reroot the doll [what caused some unexpected accidents], change her skin tone, and sew the most complex & tiniest doll corset I’ve ever worked on!
But final result is more than i could expect in the beginning 🙂
In MARVEL’s Cinematic universe Wanda Maximoff is a native of the Eastern European country of Sokovia, who grew with her twin brother, Pietro and gained her superpowers due to HYDRA’s experiments.
There is also more straight-forward explanation in movies, than it was in comics, what superpowers Scarlet Witch is wielding in her hands. When in comics it was simply “hex power” for most of the times, much later renamed to controlling chaos magic, in movies her abilities are a result of experiments with the Scepter – this gave Wanda telekinetic, telepathic and energy manipulating abilities, but word “magic” was not used to describe her power.
Still – CGI effect presented dark red magic energy flow around her hands, so I simply copied that design on some of my photos 😉
