I made these three new nudes specifically for the Dragonspace show. As of today, I think the redhead might still be available. She is $3,950.00 CND.

I finished these dolls at 9:30 in the morning and at 10:30am 2 of them were already sold. I owned them for exactly 1 hour before they went away to live their own lives. My pretty Scheherezade for was sold too for $21,000.00 CND

These nude girls feature a new, experimental magnetic wig system. A small magnet is discreetly embedded into or onto  their heads and a corresponding one into the wig cap. You can pull the wig off with a bit of effort, but it snaps back in place when the wig is on. I love it- no more slipping and sliding of the wig. The magnet can support quite a bit of weight and will stay in place until you pull it off. Problem solved. From now on, every doll will come with a magnetic wig.

I also brought one of he first Resin prototypes to Dragonspace to show. It’s Clymenestra, sleeping in a giant shell like a little mermaid. If you want to touch her and see and feel how well she is made, just ask the staff and they will take her out of the cabinet for you to look at. But she is not for sale yet.

Chad and I slept for almost 18 hours after we pulled a 27 hour long work day to prepare and setup the show at Dragonspace. We stuck around in the morning for almost three hours, chatting with clients who showed up to see the show and meet the new dolls. It was a lot of fun, but I was so exhausted, hungry and dehydrated, that I feared fainting right in the middle of the conversation.  But I felt such a tremendous relief of deadline completion, that I fell asleep the minute I got in the car. It was only a 5 minute ride home, but it felt like I slept for week. We were so tired, that after we parked outside of our building, we napped in the car for nearly 20 minutes, unable to get out and walk to our front door. It was nice- I felt the sun and the warm, ocean breeze on my face.

Today I’ve got a backlog of administrative work to sort out and some magazine interviews to deal with.

There are still two dolls remain available at Dragonspace: The nude and tattooed Vessel, but I dont’ know for how much longer. Their phone number is +604 689 8931 Call to inquire.

I want to thank all those who came yesterday, both local and those who came from afar  to see  the show. It was a pleasure to meet you.

Marina

ATTENTION CLIENTS INTERESTED IN THE READHEAD- Sorry, but she was just sold too. Only Vessel remains.

    Oh the redhead is gorgeous! I love her eyes! I can’t wait to see more pictures of the show! *hugs* So glad you got your rest Marina. It always seems like you never sleep. lol

  3. ~Jenny~ says:

    Congrats on the dolls selling out so fast. Amazing! I’m curious, what is it that Clymenestra is wearing? I like the look of it. =]

  4. Marina says:

    Clymentestra is wearing a crystal tiara made with tiny Swarowsky crystals, silver glass seed beads and little satin roses.
    I made it in 2003, I think and it just sat in my drawer all these years because it never looked good on any of my dolls.
    I think it was made for Clymenestra.

  5. Hazel says:

    Congratulations! I’m glad it turned out well after all that hard work!

    I would purchase the redhead in a heartbeat if I had the money atm! And magnetic wig snaps, indeed! Enchanted dolls seem to be getting better and better.

  6. Katherine says:

  7. Crystal says:

    Wonderful! Wonderful! New pretty faces!

  8. kelly says:

    Congrats, Marina.
    the magnetic wig idea sound great!
    Was it hard to part with Sheherezade? She’s incredible! An artist friend of mine told me she couldn’t stand her paintings by the time she was done with them. I get attached to mine. I’m actually having a hard time parting with your birthday gift, I put a lot of work into it, but it will be worth it if you choose mine and award me with a doll.
    Sleep!

  9. Candice says:

    Congratulations on such a successful show! I had a show a couple of years ago and learned better than to have it on a holiday next time! I did not fair as well as I would have liked, but it is always encouraging to see other artists succeed. You are an inspiration to me and I talk about your success and talent whenever it is appropriate. For those non-believers out there I love proving to them that artists can, and do, make a living from doing what they love. Thank you for being that vessel of art and love and success. You inspire me.

    the red haired girl is so beautiful, is she a Scarlett sculpt?

  11. Marina says:

    The pretty, little redhead is a hand modified Primavera sculpt. I tried to give her a younger, fuller face and brighter eyes.

  12. Annina says:

    that’s lovely, i really love her!

  13. kelly says:

    I just noticed the red-haired girls bracelet and rings, a beautiful detail. They are all lovely! You’re awesome, as ever, Marina.

  14. daniseyu says:

    amazing show!hope i was there

  15. Darling Marina,

    congratulations on the fantastic success of this show – it is always quite intense reading how late you stay up and how utterly exhausted you are, you truly suffer for your art… but it does show, these girls are lovely.
    They have a different… more evolved feel to them… like seeing three amazing, fresh new faces. The sapphire has pink skin? What a lovely little group they make.

    I am suprised though, usually when you sell an artwork at a gallery it stays till the end of the show – but the nudes have been whisked away already?

    take care, and congratulations again x

  16. Marina says:

    Monika,

    We are not following a usual show format. As a rule, people put down a deposit for a doll and that’s why the doll stays until the end of the show.

    This time, customers want to pay in full and in that case there is no reason to keep the doll until the end of the show.

    I keep trying different things to see what business formula works best for me. It’s never a boring same routine this way.

  17. MissLk says:

    Dear Marina,

    The magnetic wig is perfect for ED! I was studying Fiori/Peacock and felt that if the wig(although fitting very well) can just stay better then ED would be perfection :)

    With these lovely beauties, an ED show will always be full of excitements. I hope you will offer more porcelain nudes for purchase in the future – they are unexpected surprises.

  18. Katherine says:

    Watch out kelly,
    I’m entering too!!! :) just kidding, I usually have trouble parting with my gifts too, but not this time!!! I almost threw it out the door and let it freeze in the cold, hoping it would suffer!! lol, bet yours looks awsome since it wasn’t almost killed by an artist like me! :)

  19. Eiko says:

    I love the middle one. She looks absolutely gorgeous.

  20. Alexandra says:

    Marina,

    New dolls just beautiful! Love the middle one with redhead most of all.

    And I’ve beed waiting for the unswer about Birthday content since 4th Feb. Is it ok?
    I want to take part in competition too ^__^
    But still not have an address for the posting my gift…

  21. Andra says:

    Will $3,950 be the new price for all the nudes, Marina?

  22. Uyek says:

    Mgnetic wigs. A great idea! There’s nothing more irritating than a crooked wig. Will you be sharing a picture of this innovation later on your blog? I’m curious to see how visible the magnet is.

    Congratultions on your show. I love the story of how fast the nudes sold.

  23. Candice says:

    $3,950 is probably Marina’s price with the gallery’s mark-up. Retail is always a tad more expensive than straight from the source!

  24. Melanie says:

    Marina,
    Congratulations, I’m really glad to read that the show is so successful. Brilliant!

  25. Linda says:

    I am very pleased you did so well. Its a lovely thing to see when your art is appreciated and people show it by buying it.
    Looking forward to your future creations! Take care. Linda

  26. Anika says:

    Clytemnestra is lovely!!!

    I’m curious about this magnet system…does it add any bulk to the wig??

    What a great idea, regardless! It can be difficult to put wigs on such small heads (not to mention keep them there).

    Congratulations on the show, it sounds like a triumph!

  27. ~joanna says:

    Ditto on all said… i am just in *AWe* with your work and have not even seen any of it in person, yet.

    Wishing you luck, but you really do not need it, your hard work speaks for itself…
