John P. Rimbauer, a Seattle oil baron, built Rose
Red in 1907 for his beautiful wife Ellen. Ellen
loved her home and made a life long career of adding onto her beloved mansion. Ellen created many bazaar rooms, such as the
mirrored floor library and even stairs leading to nowhere.
However, Red Rose had a mind of its own and began
to possess all that Ellen loved including her daughter April, her husband and many of the
mansion servants. Finally Ellen told the few
remaining servants to leave and she stayed in the house for the time she had left till she
too disappeared. Even after the last of the
Rimbauer family was gone from the house, it still continued to expand on its own.
Ellen kept a dairy of all her years in Rose Red
and still today she can be seen in the windows of Rose Red with her candelabra and her
diary in hand.
Ellen Rimbauer is an OOAK Gene Raven repaint. Ellen is the artists conception of the lady
of Rose Red mansion based on the Steven King movie Rose Red. Ellen has had all factory paint removed and a
repaint with high quality paints and sealers. She
had a shampoo, crème rinse and hair styled by the artist. Ellen has captivating amber colored eyes with
shadows in rose and dark brown with golden highlights on the upper brow. She has had a complete new facial blushing and
shading of the mouth and nose for contrast. The
artist has also added blushing for breast enhancement. Ellens lips and nails
are of course a beautiful rose red.
Ellens costume was designed and created by
the artist. She wears a beautiful gown made of
deep red and burgundy roses with black shading. Underneath
she wears hose, black panties, black slip and black leather ankle boots.
Ellens jewelry is antique silver look with
deep red enamel roses. Ellen has a hooded cape
for the nights she dares to venture outside the mansion.
She also has her 5-candle candelabra and her diary which was handmade in
black leather with a 3 dimensional rose on top. (Diary
made by detail artist John Linville).
