    Cinderella’s face is just to gorgeous for words. Is Stepmother Cinderella’s stepmother? Should we expect to see the Ugly Stepsisters in the future (just kidding ;))?
    Cixi’s dress and shoes are both masterpieces: truly worthy of royalty.

    Beautiful shots of your dolls. I love Cinderella with her hair loose like that. I hope that you’ll share more shots of them with us.

    I just have a question about State Property and Agentha. I remember that both these dolls were sold at Artfair 21 in 2009. Yet now, they’re also part of your Travelling Collection. Does this mean that the sale fell or do you also make a second copy of all your dolls?

    I love Stepmother. She reminds me of the Neil Gaiman story ‘Snow, Glass, Apples’. The original Cinderella is gorgeous (tho, I’m still in love with the completed Cindy, she’s one of my favorite dolls). Swan princess new face is so interesting and Cixi’s shoes!!!!!! Wow! But I really want to know the story behind Candelabra. Also, whats the doll with the red veil?

    I wish I could see the exhibition.
    The intense thoughtful care and love for details, which is visible in every piece of your work is amazing. I really adore your dolls and admire you for being able to create this kind of art.

    I wish you Marina and everyone, who is fortunate and can visit the exhibition, a wonderful time in St.Petersburg.

    Every single photo took my breath away! They are all extraordinary, I would desperately love to see them in person. I’m so jealous of everyone in St. Petersburg! I don’t even think I can pick a favorite out of these.

    Bloody unbelievable… (sorry, that was all I could manage to say after half an hour of looking at the photos in stunned silence).

    I even don’t know which if them I like most – they are all exquisite individual works of art, each of them with a story to tell.

    I’m blown away! The dolls are gorgeous. Cixi is one of my favourite dolls and she looks more complete than ever before. Love the heavy-looking dress and how the turquoise pop. The shoes are wonderful to look at as the rest of your dolls. Have a great time in St Petersburg, Marina and Chad!

    your dolls are beautiful! I admire your work, Marina. but in my opinin Cinderella was complete having her former look. I think that by adding the big collar-decoration, her hair-ornaments can’t be seen so well. and I personally like the hair-ornaments better (they’re very cute and are kind of bound to a fairytail-atmosphere). :)

    will you be having any more shows in Europe this summer?
