Have finally decided to part with four OOAK dolls. It’s a bit pathetic really, how hard it is to sell them off. I don’t think of them once they are gone, but agonise over which ones to part with. They are all going up on Mister Dollface. Details below:
I was looking for a sort of descriptive name for her, and decided on Margarita Blanca, because it sounded better than ‘Nice Day for a White Wedding’ running through my head, which of course would not be suitable for sweet little Poppy at all.
Next we have Luchia Z. ‘Strict Elegance’, although she looks more like she’s been clubbing all weekend. She’s very gothic, and quite rare I think. At least I haven’t seen any of her around much, and she was rather expensive to start with. She inexplicably lost her clutch bag, and broke one of her shoes, but then that’s what happens during wild weekends. Still, she’s managed to get some rather swish black platforms from someone and another bag.
I just love vintage Thai silk, and it is perfect for that early 1960s cocktail dress. It all ended up looking rather Spanish (or Balenciaga-ish but that’s a bit of a mouthful), so I’ve left her hair up in it’s original plait (rare for me).
Rufus Blue is a cute little Dynamite Girl, and she had to have some cute little sheep to wear with her blue hair. She could do with some hair product, but I’m out (well, Ok, I don’t have any and my daughter wasn’t home). I’m selling her because I rather prefer my models to be older than jail bait, but that’s just me being an old fart I guess.
Everything but the Girl
So, that’s the end of dolls for sale, now I also got some clothes for sale. Some of them are my designs, usually the long gowns in silk. Others I’ve made from commercial Barbie patterns.
Modeled by Vanessa, my repaint from the Metal series on an FR2 body. This is my design and I’m chuffed to say I won an Industry Award for OOAK Design in 2014 for it, only in a different version. That’s the good bit. The bad bit is that the tulle has sparkly stuff on it and it tends to fall off – everywhere. I will not be buying that tulle again. However, I think most of the excess has already fallen off. I also love hats and headdresses of all sorts. You might have noticed that important people wear them a lot, like the Queen for example. They also wear crowns a lot, and other stuff on their head, all of which screams ‘celebrity’ or ‘aristocratic’ or something like that – except for Americans, they don’t seem to go in for that sort of thing. I’ll leave the cultural analysis just put up pics of the rest of the outfits.
Cloud Silk (I also love feathers as well as silk).
The Scent of Lavender
Magenta (my imagination failed me here for a name)
The Silk Lizard
Summer Rose (sadly, nothing chic came to mind, but it is a very chic early 1960s outfit)
Tartan Tantie (I rarely post dolls with their hands on their hips, but it seems to go with the title)
Yes, it’s a bad pun on westward. The outfit is inspired by the devine Vivienne Westwood, who is not so easy to adapt to one-sixth scale. I did see the dress this is modeled on several years ago at the NGA. This is nothing like it, but it is tartan, and it is silk.
Hopefully they will all be up on Mister Dollface tonight.
