LISA is not a new girl. I made her in 2016 and she brought me a special prize of Max-Oscar-Arnold Art Award in Modern Doll Art by city of Coburg in Germany.
I decided to give her a new outfit and a new wig, and this is exactly the case when a new hair color changes the girl for the better, in my opinion.
With her new dark brown curly hair, her green eyes began to shine even brighter. She became more… Parisian sort of girl, I think 🙂
The new outfit I gave her is made of my favorite wild silk. The tutu-rock is made of dozens of real silk flower petals colored and shaped in the form using millinery instruments by me.
Her hair band is a very special mini version of the silk flower deco band of the real-human-size, made also by me.
I think all these changes made LISA shine brighter and made her like a little rose flower, tender, but knowing her beauty!
Shortly before Exhibition in Moscow in March, I was able to finish a new porcelain bjd doll. I called her Belle.
Her body is like a warm caramel. Super silky to the touch.
The clothes are made from real wild silk and decorated with silk mini flowers made by me using the millinery technique for flowers of “human-size”.
The doll has two wigs: one is long blond straight style made of Goat Hair and super soft.
The other wig is made of Mohair hair and is curly.
Belle is on eBay
and in my Etsy Shop “Reeshdolldesign ”
Thank you for your interest:)
Shortly before my dear Alice found a new home in France, I was able to make some photo shooting of her inspired by her magical adventures in Wonderland.
It was really fun to create all the requisite for the photos: making the paper flowers for the enchanted garden scene; creating a Rabbit house, where Alice was so unexpectedly enlarged, or finding all the funny bottles, and pretty porcelain cups…
I wish I had more time to play with the girl and her friend White Rabbit.. but this is as it is.. when the doll finds her new home, you have to let her go with the light heart, no matter how “in love” you are at the moment with your latest creation 🙂
Wanted to say, that I improved the hands for my dolls! I am really really happy about it, because I was not AT ALL happy about the first variant.
Hope you like them 🙂
And if you noticed, there five of them.. Broke the finger of the sixth, when I was polishing it after the high fire and it slipped out of my tired hands 😂 Dollmaking teaches you a LOOOOT OF PATIENCE😉
Here is the new doll waiting for the new hands ..
And this is a not so pretty process of making gips forms of new hands 😝
See this pencil line? It means I made the first half of the form wrong 😣 .. For the third time..
Keep working and don’t give up!
