These two Enchanted Dolls are work in progress. Both are still waiting for their gowns. I’m working on them now. There are more pictures of them in the Costumed Doll gallery, but once their full outfits are complete, I will be doing another photoshoot and posting more pictures. There is also a third new doll on the way. I plan to have her finished within a week. Hopefully.

Enjoy.

There is now an Enchanted Doll twitter feed, where I will be posting short blurbs about my dolls.  This will be used for quick updates on work while I prepare for my solo show.  The blog will still be used for larger updates and photos, but for those curious about my process feel free to follow my twitter feed. [EDIT – I made it so the 3 most recent tweets will show up on this blog, in the sidebar – Chad]

The above photo is of the doll I’m currently working on.  This is just after the hair has been glued on, she looks much more elegant now. And she’s got armpit hair!

This collar is another project in progress. I’ve been working on it on and off for a couple of months, but i’m not sure as off yet what exactly i’m going to do with it. Mermaid Song is modeling it for now, but i haven’t decided what doll i’m going to make for it. I have a few ideas, but they are just ideas at this point. It’s cast in non-tarnishing sterling silver and has a hinge on the back and the front for easy removal. I’m not sure if it’s finished yet either as i might add some stones to it later on. I’m thinking of making several copies of it to try it in several different applications for fun. We’ll see what happens.

I apologize for being absent from my blog for the past while. I have really been busy this past month. Some really exciting things have happened, from making a doll for a famous fashion designer, to preparing shots and interviews for a couple upcoming magazine features (Haute, FDQ), and of course, making dolls for orders.

I also have a really exciting project that I’m working on that will be featured in the upcoming issue of Fashion Doll Quarterly. This is a doll with a twist, and she’s dying to meet everyone.

Back to the studio, I’m just wrapping up my intense reclusive work period, and I’ll be back making regular posts soon.

The doll with Gold overlay all over her body is near completion.

This is a shot of her hands and feet, with the rest of her body being decorated likewise. The only other thing this doll is wearing, is a blue veil, and an ornate headpiece set with garnets and tourmalines

I made the piece in sterling and fine silver, and just took it to get plated with 24k gold this afternoon.

Perhaps I’ll post another sneak peak later on.

First new male doll is complete, but still bald. I just assembled the male doll yesterday and took a couple of quick shots of him.
His full photoshoot is scheduled for later this week, and he’ll have his own gallery at that time.

Hello,

My new site is near completion!!! It’s so much better than the old one in terms of the aesthetics and user friendliness.

I’m introducing more new features for my limited edition porcelain nudes: Tattoos, fired-on 24k white and yellow gold body ornament (rings, bracelets, anklets, neck pieces etc.) and silver jewelry. All of these ornaments are permanent and not removable! Even silver bracelets and anklets because they have to be put on a doll prior to assembly.

My new site will have doll accessories gallery where examples of these ornaments can seen and ordered. Custom orders for a specific design are welcome.

I just want to post that I’m working on a new double jointed male doll. Both the legs and the arms will be double jointed, allowing for the same level of articulation as the female dolls.

The target completion date for the first doll is in two weeks. I’ll have pictures posted then, so keep your eyes open for him.

Marina.
