Back To Dollie Making

Wednesday, April 4, 2012

Yes, it is true, I am back to dollie making! :) Okay, okay, so I never stopped reborning during my vacation, lol! Reborning is just too addictive for life-long doll-a-holics like myself. ;)

Up until now, I have been too busy to reborn prototypes, so I had to turn down several sculptors and companies who asked me to reborn a sample kit. I promised I would reborn a kit by every artist and company who asked me to reborn a prototype, and I was able to get my hands on a Cianne kit by Romie Strydom about three weeks ago. As soon as the kit arrived, I could not put her down! I just had to see her finished. Like everyone else, I am in love with Joelle (a silicone edition by Romie Strydom), so I ordered Cianne hoping to make an ethnic, vinyl sleeper that kinda resembles Joelle, lol. So far so good! My little toffee-toned princess is painted and ready for rooting. I hope to have her listed on eBay by April 29-- give or take a few days. ;) I have spoiled her with a high-end Biscotti layette, so the photo shoot is promised to be girly and fun! :)

Also, I am working on another Ariella kit for a private order! Ariella has had my heart since his/her debut in 2007. He/she has become a classic in my book. I can't wait to see Dallas' twin all finished up-- baby afro and all, lol!

I know some of you have noticed the surprise baby listed under 'Babies in Progress' on the sidebar. Yes, it is what you think it is! :) I can't reveal any details yet, but stay tuned! 

I have been using point and shoot cameras for a while now-- a long phase I went through following my husband's passing last year.  I was not in the mood to enjoy much of anything and photography was the first hobby to go buh-bye...right before doll making.  I also dealt with severe artist block during that time.  Anyway, I decided to give myself a little push with a new SLR and lens. We'll see how Cianne's shoot goes. ;)
