New Dolls

Over the last month i’ve made two new dolls: one costumed, titled ‘Bride of Frankenstein’ and one tattooed, titled ‘The Vessel’.

I can’t believe that i’ve been able to (almost) complete two brand new dolls in one month on top of working on other projects and nudes simultaneously. I think that this July i outdid myself, but I also almost lost my sanity in the process. I’m going to hold off showing full pictures of either doll for a bit because the Bride is missing last bit of detail on her dress and the Vessel is waiting for her head ornament, which is yet to be made. The Bride of Frankenstein is a very special doll because she is wearing a very interesting, Steampunk inspired, bronze head dress. The ‘hat’ was very complex to make and i’m quite proud of the fact that i was able to make it work in the way i envisioned it. The piece fits snugly on the head, but it’s assembled of three hinged parts which open up like an orange peel so that it can be put on the doll’s head and removed without much difficulty.

I’m very excited about making more metal head ornaments and can’t wait to begin the next one.

There have been other very exciting things happening around here, one of which is another interview for a Fashion Doll Quarterly Magazine. It comes out in the fall as well as Haute Doll, but it will have different works published there, including the brand new dolls.

The other exciting thing is that i’m almost ready to make the sterling silver slippers for Enchanted Doll available for sale. I’m just working out the final details of cost and packaging. This pair is the first style in the very exclusive line, and i’ll be posting close up pictures when it’s ready to launch.

    Wonderful to hear that new dolls are coming out. This one should be very interesting! The headgear sounds like it was a lot of fun to make. Can’t wait to see full photography.

    Regarding repetitive strain injury that you’ve mentioned earlier in this blog, I’ve had to fight it as a graphic designer and highly recommend trigger point release massage. It saved me from surgery and other horrors. And don’t forget to do lots of neck and shoulder stretches! Ideally, my physiotherapist told me I should stretch every half hour for at least 10 minutes.
