With a colour scheme like this, I just wanted to make something asymmetric and eccentric. Since her outfit is so colourful, I decided not to add many accessories so it wouldn't look too busy. The wings are made of wire, with gems set in them (I couldn't get Ashley to wear traditional fairy wings XD). Design of the wings was inspired by this stylized butterfly:

Awesome idea! I wouldn't have even thought of doing a muliti colour jewel. And I know you said that with the major colour scheme you didn't want to add to many accessories but I think just a simple necklace or bracelet would have been nice because she does look a bit bland where her clothes aren't. What I also could have seen on there is maybe a simple tattoo on her right shoulder or her stomach but I also know those are hard to pixel. Overall, great job!

When you approached me about a multi-colored stone, I was a bit worried about how you would do it, but I think this came out brilliantly. I'm glad you chose to do a gradient and not separated colors, I think then this doll would've flopped big time. I really think the wire wings were an original concept and it definately added to the eccentric nature of this doll. I agree with Singer that you could've gotten away with a simple necklace or bracelet of the same metal since it looks a little empty on top, but it still is a very beautiful doll.
