My husband Pete and I have been collaborating on a new project, creating an army of circus punks! We’re making these for our booth at The Dirtiest, Most Bizarre Art Show That is Not in an Alley, Ever (September 9 at the Old Miami, Detroit) so we won’t be listing them in our Etsy shop……but if you see one you just GOTTA have, send a message and we can ship it to you. Prices will range from $20 to $40 for the sizes shown here. More punk previews to come!
Beautiful, mysterious Sylvie is now available in my Etsy shop!
You might have noticed that things have been a little quiet on this site. Life stuff has been getting in the way of my dollmaking for the past few months, but I was so happy to have pulled off this commissioned Wednesday Addams Blythe. She’s the third version of Wednesday that I’ve done; each are a little different, but each reminds me of why I got into Blythe in the first place. You can see more photos of her in her Flickr album.
Sunny and Honey are two mellow, sun loving sisters. Sunny is the hippie chick; her dreads were each individually needle felted with alpaca and wool fiber (definitely a lengthy labor of love!) Honey is hovering between tomboy and super model. Her hair is a gorgeous, golden human hair sewn weft. They are available in my Etsy shop!
Here’s my take on Blythe as Strawberry Shortcake! She’s my 46th custom, done as a commission. You can see the rest of her photo shoot on Flickr!
“Hi! Hey there! Wanna push me on the swings?”
Ellie, my 45th custom Blythe, was done as an Up inspired commission for a very special Carl to give to his own Ellie. <3 You can see the rest of her photo set on Flickr!
These sun loving sisters are slowly coming to life. They’re not quite done, but they snuck out of the studio to take advantage of today’s beautiful weather. Honey has human hair sewn in wefts, and Sunny has dreadlocks that I made by needle felting alpaca and wool fibers into dreads and then sewed to her scalp one by one (which was kinda a huge task but I love the result.)
Ma’at is the my 44th custom Blythe, created as a commission honoring my client’s African heritage. Ma’at represents traditional African beauty with a modern twist. Her tribal makeup is in an Ankh shape to represent eternal life, and her name and third eye represent awakened consciousness and the pursuit of balance, harmony, and justice. See her full photo shoot on Flickr!
