Celeste

Again, I am behind on my posts so working to update my last few dolls that I forgot to post.

Here is Celeste, one of my stuffed body doll with clay face, lower arms and hands. She is full of beautiful lace and has a little victorian feel to her. I was  inspired by the work of the illustrator Sakizo an had the urge  to create her after my recent convention. I adore this doll and think she is one of my favorites. In fact, if she doesn’t sell I may claim her myself and keep her forever haha. Right now she is proudly displayed on my wall along with my other art.

Please follow my art doll page. I love posting progress of my dolls and new works monthly.

She is available in my Etsy Shop

Circus Performer

When flipping through the Art Doll Quarterly magazine, I noticed the next challenge was circus  themed. My first thought was to stick with my usual darker style. I  thought of doing a sword swallower, a knife thrower, or even  something from a circus freak show but in the end I went in the complete opposite direction . In my many boxes of fabric, I had lots of pink and blue tulle as well as other things that I found fitting to the topic.

I had lots of fun with this one, especially the hair, which is always one of my favorite parts of designing my dolls. I wanted this to be a playful doll so I went all out with the pieces in her hair. I individually painted some wooden balls in various shades of pink and blue, gathered some lace and tulle, and then added some various found objects in her hair. Their are several butterflies, yellow roses, turquoise yarn, pink bows, silver stars, and even a little unicorn. I had the urge to keep adding and adding, but I had to pull myself away before I overdid it.

For her costume, I individually attached each black strip to give her a striped corset, neckpiece and boots. I then added pink pom poms, pink trim, white lace, glass beads, and some pink and blue tulle for the skirt.

I wanted to give this doll some life so I created a swing for her. It was hell to keep her seated on it since she didn’t want to cooperate but luckily  I was able to get a few descent shots.

She is now for sale in my Etsy Shop.

Adela, circus inspired doll

Finally finished my new doll. When I started this doll, I was watching the  French film  ‘The Girl on the Bridge” about a professional knife thrower who stops a girl in the middle of attempting to commit suicide, and convinces her to be his target girl in his traveling circus act.  So I was inspired to make a doll inspired by the circus although I am sure I strayed away from the theme a bit. However, this is what I came up with. I named her Adela, after the main character of the movie.

She is hand sculpted in fimo puppen clay and is approximately 12.5″ when seated and 23″ long when laying down. She will soon be for sale in my Etsy shop.
