the "soulless" doll

Here's a fun little thing to do if you're looking to kill a few minutes online.  Orbit Books has created a virtual dress-up doll inspired by the heroine of the steampunk novel Soulless by Gail Carriger.

Just click on this link, let the screen load, and begin assembling outfits for Alexia Tarabotti as she goes about the streets and society of a slightly more paranormal 19th century London than is described in the history books.

A few of my own Soulless doll creations:

  1. Oh I do enjoy the Soulless series, think I might have to indulge in a bit of doll dressing myself. :-)

  4. It's a telling detail, that I recognised that piece, although I wasn't familiar with Soulless.

    People who are into costuming sort of gravitate towards each other. :)
