Alethea decided to make a bit of a statement by taking "super sexy" fabric and creating a woman who is doing it all...taking care of kids, making the meals, cleaning the house, all the while looking great doing it. Domestic Goddess will make you wish you had 10 arms as well.

Watch Alethea use both her arms in Show 2602.
