Josephine A Resident of 7717 St. Charles Ave.


Josephine is the 7th doll in my series The Residents of 7717 St. Charles Ave.
Josephine had lived at 7717 St. Charles Ave for about a year before the big storm hit. Hurricane Betsy was predicted by the local weather man Nash Roberts to be the biggest and worst storm to ever hit the region. Josephine, trusted Nash but had decided she would stay and ride out the storm, perhaps even throw a grand Hurricane party. She knew her home, which was near the river banks was built on one of the highest points in the city and she felt confident everything would be fine. Josephine and her home made it through the deadly storm. Unfortunately when she stepped outside once it had past she didn't see that downed power line and Josephine was electrocuted. Josephine is buried in cemetery No. 1 at the corner of Prytania and Washington.

This is such a very elegant piece of sculpture. I love all your work, but this one seems to have taken a stronger more serious turn in the whole style that is Loopy Boopy Art.

Thanks ya'll.

Pat, yep I use Super Sculpey and the bodice of her dress is Sculpey III. You use Sculpey too? I'm still having to get used the new softer formula..drives me crazy!!

New Orleans is a plethora of inspiration to me so I figured I use some of it's history and local terminology and characters to give my girls some background, it kind of helps bring them to life.

Nash Roberts was a weatherman here in New Orleans. Every hurricane season he would come on the TV with his green chalkboard and forecast the hurricane, even with all the new satellite and radar technology people here trusted him and his chalkboard over all of it.

It's difficult when one has such an electric personality. The news of her demise was just shocking. Watt's next for the poor residents? (Painfully punny, isn't it?)

REALLY love her expression. :o)
