Finally, I can announce the nude doll which will be available for sale at the Paris Creation doll expo.

This is a special piece from the limited edition of Emerald doll. I customized her especially for this event to make her different from the others. She has a small monochrome tattoo between her shoulderblades and two removable wigs: the one shown and a long, rusty red one. (Chinchilla fur shown in the pic is not included).

This girl will go for $2,300 CND, or 1,440 Euros.

A lottery will be held to decide who gets to buy this doll because there were two many people wanting to reserve it. I will start taking names down at 10 am and we will draw one at 2pm. You will have to be present when this happens because either the deposit or the full payment must be paid on the spot. If the sum is paid in full, then you get to take the doll home there and then, but you also have the option of putting a non-refundable deposit of 30% down in cash, with the remaining 70% to be paid withing 7 days via Paypal.

I will still be in Paris and can give you the doll in person after the balance is paid or mail her to you.

The show is in two days. Email me if you have any questions.

I will have a few of my dolls showing at the Strychnin Gallery in Berlin!

The show starts on December 12th and runs until feb 1st, the show can be seen for 4 weeks.

The Main room will be with Daniel Van Nes, who makes illuminated etchings with antique glass domes.

The Gallery is at Boxhagenerstrasse 36, D-10245 Berlin

Although only four dolls will be shown at this exhibition, I’m still very excited about this as I’ve never been to Berlin before.  Also, this could lead to a larger showing there in the near future.  If anyone is in the Berlin area, I welcome you to visit the show to see my dolls in person.

Kia

Meet Kia, the Water Nymph.  She’s the newest nude doll in the Enchanted Doll collection.

She is shown with a custom feature of Mendhi, done on her hands/feet/etc.  This is a feature that was done for a custom order, and is similar to Tattooing a doll.  She can be ordered without the Mendhi, or any other doll can be ordered with it.

You can view her gallery here.

Venetian is another new nude that was put up earlier this week.  Be sure to check out her gallery too.

I have uploaded a handful of videos showing me at my desk playing with my dolls.  These videos will give doll fanatics a chance to see how my dolls move and a variety of possible poses.

The videos can be found in the “Doll Animation” section, along with my stop motion movie.

The music in the “Playing with..” series is by Revolution Void.

So, it’s now final. I’m coming to Paris to attend the Paris Creation Doll Expo on November 23rd, 2008 and i’m bringing some dolls with me!

None of the costumed pieces will be for sale. This time. As the matter of fact, most of what i’m bringing with me this year won’t be. But there will be a few things, such as accessories, some prints and maybe one or two nudes that will be available to buy. So, come on down to see the Enchanted dolls in all their grandeur.

Oh, and since i’ve never attended a trade show before, I’m not equipped to accept any credit/bank cards or cheques. Sorry about this inconvenience, but cash is the only method of payment i can accept in person.

Write me if you have any questions. Otherwise, I’ll see you there!

After a few hectic weeks of work, my version of Alice in Wonderland is finally complete. Well, the Alice part us complete. I had no time, to make the Wonderland. Check out her gallery here for more pictures.

I’ll shoot some more before I leave.

These are the two dolls I mentioned several weeks ago. Both are still works in progress, but since i probably won’t have time to finish them before I leave for Europe, i though i might as well show them. I’ll be bringing both of them to the Paris Creation show with me, so those of you who are coming, can see them in person.

See more pictures of these dolls in the Costumed Dolls Gallery, here

The costume is still incomplete and i only have 10 days left to finish it. It’s going to be tight.

These are some sights from my daily jog. It’s probably hard to believe looking at these pictures that i live in Downtown Vancouver. It’s not that our Downtown is a forest, but it’s just I live right on the very edge of its’ West End, where it ends at a huge and beautiful rain forest park and then water. The entire Downtown along with Stanley Park is a peninsula that is surrounded by waters of English Bay on three sides and connected to the mainland Vancouver by 5 bridges and one narrow neck of land.

It’s a very pretty place to live. I have a beach on my front door, high rises on one side and a rain forest on the other. As the matter of fact, this alley right behind my apartment building where I begin my run is a boundary between residential towers and the park. It marks the end of down town and beginning of the forest.

The park is very beautiful all year round and has a very rich flora and many trails to enjoy it. Every time i run, it feels like i’m entering a fairy tale. On rainy and misty days like this one, when cloud ceiling is so low that its’ edges get caught on the tips of the ancient cedars and fine mist creeps through the trees, I almost expect to catch a glimpse of the Little Red riding hood in the depth of the forest.

I keep wanting to do a photo shoot of some dolls in the park, but I haven’t gotten around to it yet. I guess i feel like i don’t have the right doll for the project.

Anyway, just thought i’d share a little bit of my beautiful home. West Coast is truly beautiful. Most of the year it’s a cold and grand type of beauty. It’s where mountains, luscious rain forest and Pacific ocean meet and there is a distinct sense of space and age and solitude. Even with thousands of tourists around. When i rollerblade or bike around the park on the seawall in the morning, I sit on the bench for a few minutes looking at the mountains and imagining what this place must have looked like hundreds of thousands of years ago. Probably not that different, minus all the buildings and plus some glaciers.

An article about my work will be featured in the 5th anniversary of  Fashion Doll Quarterly Magazine, which will be released on October 15th. So run to the store and pick one up, because it will feature some brand new dolls.

After this one there will be 2 more magazines with my interviews coming out later this year: Shop city Magazine in Odessa, Ukraine and Doll Reader Magazine. Actually, Doll Reader might be early 2009.

I’ll post a cover for the next magazine when i get it from the editor.
