Onoma is another fun doll - my 5th in the Art Doll Cool-Aberration 2010 project. Onoma is an alien with amnesia. Poor thang don't know where she came from or even what species she is...

I thought she needed a bit more "alienating", so I chopped off her feet and replaced them with oyster shells - nice briny-looking alien feet, good for walking on or paddling. She grew matching hands, too.

And what self-respecting alien has no antennae??? So she got those, too - made from copper multi-strand wire and sparkly turquoise fiber.

Lastly, I added a couple ball beads to her head gear. They remind me of planets.

Onoma's journal entry includes drawings of aliens and spaceships done by my brother, Dave, at my request. Alien creatures and spacecraft are subjects he's often doodled thru the years, and I thought it'd be cool to include some of his work in the journal (since I always make him admire our dolls).

Check out our project blog to see the step-by-step evolution of Onoma and 6 more cool dolls.

Fantastic stuff, as always. Love those feet on the alien gal... she is far-out, indeed!
I like Dave's drawings very much.
