A Victorian doll depicting Empress Elisabeth of Austria and Hungary (Sisi), gowned in her preferred dark, riding habit-inspired court apparel, long about 1883.

Sisi is reported to have suffered from severe eating disorders for much of her life -- which, for many women, comes about because it gives them the only control they can find in lives governed by domineering others. This was almost certainly the case for Sisi. Though she was at times an unhappy and neurotic woman, she nonetheless managed to become an icon in her time because of her skill with words, her increasing wilfulness, her impressive athleticism, and her formidable intelligence.

The Creative Coalition

The Creative Coalition

As if 10/15, on a temporary Hiatus. Will return. Just need to focus on some things offline at this time.
 
Welcome to the Creative Coalition - an art-based group. This is a group for those of us who find solace in creativity. We are creative, open-minded and support one another. No submission will be rejected unless it is hateful or a blatant copy. So, here's a bit about the group in a nutshell...
1. Preferred Submissions: Art sets, including dolls, abstracts, interiors/exteriors, collage, etc. as opposed to strictly editorial fashion sets but as stated above no submission will be rejected.
 
2. Contests will be held - some judged by moderators and some will be up for group vote.
 
3. Kindness and encouragement for everyone. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
 
If you have any questions please PM me!
