New Enchanted Doll packaging is here!
I love containers. I love organizing, containing and compartmentalizing things, not just possessions, but the world. Everything has to be sorted, arranged, grouped, classified and put in its own little box or drawer somewhere in my mind and in my home. But there can’t be too many things in the boxes, because then life gets cluttered. When I get something new, I always throw away two of something old, to keep things light and manageable in my drawers. Now, I’m not a psychiatrist, but I think this might indicate some subconscious control issues. But anyway.
I’ve always had a soft spot for apothecary chests and tin boxes. In my compulsive need to control and organize everything in my life, I’m always drawn to elegant organizing solutions, and ever since the inception of Enchanted Doll in 2004, I’ve been dreaming about creating very elegant, fancy packaging for the elegant Enchanted Dolls. For a long time, it was impossible, but with the impending release of my new resin line I realized that the time had come.
And finally, I have it! Introducing the new Enchanted Doll tin with 3 custom designs in a beautiful matte finish, and a form fitting foam insert. But the best part of it is, aside from being included with a doll order, you can buy as many as you want separately to store your other ED dolls and goodies in them, such as clothes, accessories, wigs and even things unrelated to dolls, such as cookies. Mmm…coooookies.
They are so beautiful, that I already appropriated several of them for storage of my selection of finest, custom mohair strands, my paints and my ongoing sewing and beading projects. I’m in compartmentalizing heaven!
I also like the fact that the padding can be easily pulled out and two dolls can fit in the box. That will help me a lot when I travel with them, as I’m always desperate for suitcase space. But ideally of course, every doll should have its own box for maximum protection during storage and transportation.
The designs featured on the boxes were commissioned from Nati and Lost fish and I’m grateful to them both for their beautiful contribution to Enchanted Doll. I did the ED logos for two of the designs and my dear Chadasaurus did digital layout and formatting of the prints. It was a joint effort that took nearly a year of work and I would like to thank everyone involved in this project.
I’ll be posting more pictures shortly. These ones didn’t turn out very well in the poor lighting.
Each box will retail at $49.00 CND+shipping. If you’re in Canada, then there is also a 12% tax.
By the way, that doll in the middle box is the birthday 2010 prize doll, ready to be shipped out to the 1st place winner in its new beautiful box.
