Twenty To Midnight-upcoming London show

9 years, 10 months ago 71


Here are some preview shots of my new doll-Twenty To Midnight. She is going to a show in London at the end of this month.

Twenty To Midnight is a one of a kind tattooed doll, featuring a silver-plated, limited edition bronze casting of a hand carved Rococo wig sculpture. The wig is magnetic and removable, with one of a kind gemstone accents of 6 Pink Tourmalines and 2 Rubies.


Midnight’s china face painting was loosely inspired by Audrey Kawasaki’s beautiful girls.


Midnight’s silver-plated, bronze slippers are accented with solitaire Rubies, glass beads and tiny bows.


The finished wig weighs only 119.1 grams, or 4.2 ounces and is relatively light compared to some of my other metal head ornaments, such a Sterling Snowflake crown or a Sterling Cathedral crown. I am immensely pleased with how it turned out, as I really didn’t anticipate such a close fit to the contours of the head because of the shrinkage and inevitable warping of the model during molding and casting. The inside of the wig is lined with layers of soft leather to maximize the tightness of contact.


We are still working on the web gallery for Twenty To Midnight, but I’ll post more photos and information for her on Monday or Tuesday.

Today I have to get her ready for shipment.

  1. Waa this one is really incredible ! I love the work on her silver wig very beautiful girl ! Congrats.

  2. Laura says:

    Oh, my God!!!!!!!!!! She is just Gorgeous!!!!! Congratulations Marina!!!!!!

  3. Crystal says:

    Very sultry! She has such a serene beauty! I adore the wig! It’s wonderful that it’s light and that you need no strap to keep it on, gives you so much freedom! I can attest to the fact that the snowflake crown is very heavy! Maybe silver plated bronze is the way to go!
    Can’t wait to see her “web”.

  4. Kelly says:

    I like the curlicued pubic hair. You had too much fun with this one, I think, Marina!

  5. Marina says:

    No such thing as too much fun, Kelly. No such thing.
    But fun was being had in a great quantity.

    It’s like that wise and profound 80’s song goes:”Girls just wanna have fu-uuu-un!Ooooh girls just wannna have fun!”

  6. Annina says:

    oh wow, she is effing amazing :O
    this tattoo is my favourite yet, when you showed the sketch i though it would be situated on her thigh, it’s really cool that it is on her chest around her neck, i love that!

    the wig is mindblowing!

    and her face, oh i love this youthful yet sultry look she has, it’s love on first sight.
    i REALLY want to have the amount of money so i could buy her. argh, if there was ever a time that i’ve wanted a OOAK of yours, it’s now!

    really great job, she is amazing!

  7. I like this girl’s face the most of all the “heavy lidded eyed” dolls you’ve made… she is very soft and there’s a new plateau of realism you’ve achieved in her expression.
    Definitely my favourite face, she’s delightful!

  8. Annina says:

    oh and props to the world renowned hand model, the picture with his hands has a very interesting composition!

  9. Marina says:


    Chad did good. I’m grateful for being able to borrow his hands occasionally.
    Although, although, sometimes he gets a bit grumpy and impatient during the hand sessions, when I take too long to compose a shot.

    It’s probably because I contort him into uncomfortable poses in the pursuit of that perfect shot.

  10. The Old Maid says:

    She is fab! I love her metal “wig” and her face-up – the eyes are so different from usually painted by you but still they are pretty – and her tatoo.:) Beautiful work Marina! Surely she will be sold fast :D

  11. Eiko says:

    Wow, she looks gorgeous. This is truly a masterpiece.

    You can see very clearly that you were inspired by Audrey Kawasaki’s work. Your girl does her work justice.

  12. Suok69 says:

    OMG! OMG!! and again OMG!!!!!!!!

    That is something out of this world, Marina. This doll is just gorgeous. Your imagination has no limits. You outdid yourself, congratulation. I just hope she is not that crazy expensive, but i’m sure that she is. I guess we’ll know in the few days.

    Congratulation Marina, you are truly an Enchantress.

  13. MollyTheWanderer says:

    She’s lovely, I think her face is my favorite part. I’d really like to see the wig from the back.

  14. terri says:

    That wig is stunning, those eyes are incredible! The entire piece is breathtaking!

    Bravo Marina!

  15. Kirsten says:

    Marina, I think this is my favorite tattoo that you have done so far! I too thought it was going to be on a thigh, but I really like it on her chest attached to a choker. The headpiece is amazing as well! I was so excited to see casted. She is beyond words overall.

  16. My only words are “need to check my Loto Max”….OMG

  17. Ruth says:

    How can you bear to part with her? She is seriously beautiful, yet she makes me smile too. The curlicue public hair, and the pendulum centered on her navel–brilliant!

  18. Gosh – gorgeous doll.

    When and where will she be exhibited in London?

  19. Sara says:

    She is utterly phenomenal. The head piece is to *die* for, I’m so enamored by your metal work/wax carving/casting. The detail is superb, especially on the tattoo. Congrats!!

  20. Suok69 says:

    Marina, who is the seller of this doll, you or that gallery that she’ll go to? Just in case of an unexpected miracle.

  21. Marina says:

    Show Studio Gallery. See previous post of wig modeling.

  22. Masha says:

    This is my favorite of all the lovely doll faces that you have done- She is very regal and serene!

  23. MissLK says:

    Is she your favorite tattoo girl so far?
    How did you come up the rococo wig?

    beautiful and inspiring as always.

    Prosperity to the Enchanted Dolls!(I’m raising my cup of coffee for the toast in front of the Mac)

  24. Orangey says:

    She’s beautiful, I love her tattoo and wig headpiece the most, stunning! I think the coloring of the whole doll is very beautiful, the silver headpiece and rubies are a beautiful match with her light porcelain ‘skin’ and pale blue tattoo. And the face painting is superb.

    I’m really looking forward to another tanned or dark ED next. Bravo to you for Twenty To Midnight!

  25. Jon Songserm says:

    She is so incredible, i was wonder about your sketch, but now this is a perfect position for the tattoo, she become my favorite now,
    Congratulations again, i’m agree with Annina, when ED on Chad’s hand is so amazing. Love it!

  26. Jon Songserm says:

    Do she has the mohair wig, or just only the ornament wig?

  27. Erin Crane says:

    She is nothing short of incredible!

  28. Katarina says:

    You are a fantastic artist, I so Admire your work and dream of own a doll of you someday.

  29. Amal says:

    I love the placement of the clock face. It’s very satisfying and so beautifully drawn. You abandoned the sand-timer idea from your sketch – which was nice, but maybe not necessary…

    What is the meaning behind twenty-to-midnight? Is it a reference to Cinderella? The clock face near her heart is, I imagine, a constant reminder that time is short…which is ironic because this porcelain beauty is totally immune to time… However, now she will always remain on the precipice of midnight – awaiting her fate.

    She is a treasure :) Bravo!

  30. Manü says:

    Congrats, she is absolutly stuning!!

  31. ~Jenny~ says:

    Mm, I love the mechanics in clocks.

    My very first impression of the wig and doll was that it was Rococo. The swirls, the lusnhess and the details makes it Rococo but there’s something that isn’t characteristic Rococo, and that is the heavy look of the metal. But when I see the tattoo and know the fact that the doll will be in a show in London, my immediate thought was Big Ben. Now clocks weren’t made only in England but the French Rococo and the “English” clock tattoo make a nice fusion of the two (possibly three) styles (with the medieval calligraphy).

    Sorry for the babbling.

    Great work!

  32. giperborea says:

    Amazing beautiful work! It must be sad to part with her so soon after her completion, but then she will return after the show. Her facial expression is WOW!

  33. Puprika says:

    She is so beautiful! I very like steampunk tattoo!

  34. Jayne Wourms says:

    She is marvelous. Simply stunning! She is going to be the Belle of the Ball! It must be so satisfying to have hands that can create what your mind can imagine.

  35. Kimmi says:

    I really love how you did the blushing around her eyes, that’s always been my favorite thing about Audrey’s girls :) What are the tattoos on her thighs?

  36. Marina says:

    The tattoos on her thighs are ED initials in calligraphy.

  37. Suok69 says:

    Marina, how it works when there are few buyers?

  38. Kimmi says:

    Oh, that’s what I thought but I was just making sure it didn’t stand for something else :)

  39. Marina says:

    What do you mean, Suok69?

    Do you mean several people wanting to buy the same doll?

    It’s the first come first serve rules.

  40. Suok69 says:

    Do you have to be there in order to buy her?

  41. Marina says:

    She can be bought from the gallery over the phone. There is also a layaway plan. You put down deposit and make payments after that. This show runs til March, so that’s how long the layaway plan would be.

    I’ll provide all of these details in the next post about Twenty to Midnight and the show.

    I just didn’t have time to get around to the concrete details yet. Been too busy with the making of her up until today.

  42. Carol says:

    Oh, i especially love her eyes!

  43. Cyriaque-L says:

    This doll is amazing and so beautiful ! Her tatoo is great ! I really love the blue paint on china…and her wig seems to be so precious. A so wonderful creation…

  44. Suok69 says:

    Marina, is there any news on the price?

  45. maria soares says:
