Good evening my friends! Choosing hair for my new doll, Manon was a hard one. I had to decide what kind of hair I wanted for her. My main problem was, though she’s a continuity of my last doll Adele, I did not want her to look like her. In fact, Manon is much more taller than Adele, she’s 5o cm (20 inches) and Adele (48,3 cm) 19 inches. Manon height gives me inspiration to make her look more Rasta. And for that, I chose a synthetic curly hair with a honey color. I would had preferred using something natural, like a silk angora or alpaca, but since she’s an experimental doll and I decided to use a left over hair I had.
Good evening! I’m slowly getting over the incident of Adele’s fissured leg. I will not be showing it to you, since I am distraught over the painted layer of Apoxie covering the fissure. As I mentioned in my previous post, due to this misfortune, I have no choice to totally change the design process. I will now leave you with Adele’s wig installed and almost done!
Hello! What a week it was…going to school and finishing my semester with three textile exams, working 30 hours and with all that, I have my doll Adele to finish…Do not worry, by nature, I’m a positive person! Speaking of Adele, I had to make a hair decision: black silky or dark brown and curly. I chose the second option since I want to create an authentic black doll, meaning a doll with braids. Wish me luck (just kidding)! See you in my next post!
Good evening art doll lovers! A few weeks ago, when I decided to take pictures of Agnès, many of them were put aside for various reasons…I decided to make another beautiful outfit for her, which I will post during this weekend. But for tonight, I am showing to you more fashion photos of Agnès and here they are! Enjoy!
*WARNING! SOME NUDITY IS FEATURED IN THIS POST. PARENTAL GUIDANCE IS REQUIRED.
Bonjour everyone! Two days ago, my dear Agnès was introduced to you wigged! Speaking of wigs, the hair used was synthetic, I have used it, to mimic natural black hair. Also, I changed my way on making wigs. They now look a bit more natural and I use 85% of the time fine quality human hair and the other 15% is a mix of human and mohair. In a future, I will elaborate more on the subject with a another doll… For tonight’s post, I decided to present Agnès with two of my previous dolls, Fukiko & Betty. It was important for me to present her and compare her with other dolls that I created in the past, because yes, in my own point of view, Agnès looks different from my old dolls. For one, she’s taller and more linear. Two, her face looks more women like and her features are little bit more “realistic”, in other word less cartoon like! I sculpted her in being aware that I needed to make a more mature doll, rather than childish looking one. Though a few past dolls also look more women like, Rachelle, Aglahé and Beatrice come to mind, however with Agnès, I went more deeply with her sculpt aesthetic!
Good evening everybody! Before I continue with tonight’s post, my doll Haulani received positive and if I can add to this, lovely reactions from the general public! Thanks to all of you, this beauty was a bless for me to create last summer. Sadly, tonight’s post will be the last one on my sweet Haulani and another doll will be presented next weekend! This time, I decided to make it simple by making one last camera test, I call it “Special Effects”. All pictures looks like black & white watercolors ! Thanks for watching!
Hello everyone! Two weeks ago, while photographing Haulani, I decided to style her a little bit, not something too serious, but to give a small overview on how she would look with a bohemian style. In reality, I am sort of a bohemian my self…in an other post, I will elaborate a little bit more on the subject in the future. Till now, enjoy my Haulani…the bohemian!
