The Puppelini Sisters Circus

Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, I proudly present to you The Puppelini Sisters Circus! Starring Silvia, Sophia, Giuseppe and Fettuccine!

This sister act has been a LONG time coming. Last spring, during the early months of the pandemic, I read an article about an Italian traveling family circus that had become marooned in the last town they had performed in. They couldn’t hold shows, and they were barred from traveling due to Covid restrictions, so they were stuck and trying to make the best of it. I was enchanted by the circus children, practicing their performance routines along with their schoolwork, living a life that seemed a relic of 100 years ago (but of course with electronics.) Later in the year, I read about other family circuses in similar straits in Mexico and the Netherlands…..what amazing lives people lead!
I wanted to recreate the feel of the little performers through Blythe, and decided that it would be fun if Silvia and Sophia’s act included their pets.

Visit my shop to bring one or both girls and their puppies home!

1/6 Scale Dolly Furniture

I am super excited to be making 1/6 scale doll furniture for Blythe and other 11″ fashion dolls now. This Sunday, May 2, I’ll be offering several versions of these completed hutches, as well as DIY kits with pre-cut wood and instructions to build the hutch and decorate it your way. The shop update will be at 7pm Eastern.


Ripley is my creation for Blythe vs Blythe 10: the All Stars Competition. Congratulations to JJ Dollies aka Marieke Geerts on her win for best interpreting “The Future of Blythe.”

So, what is a character from a 42 year old movie doing representing The Future of Blythe? I want to have hope, but it seems more realistic when I envision a future:
….in which we have the technology to explore the galaxy and discover new planets and life forms, but have been pushed to do so after destroying our own planet.
….in which giant corporations act with little regard for the safety and well being of their employees, or of humanity in general.
…..in which humans have managed to reduce the wonder of scientific exploration to profit and greed.
BUT, also, a future:
….in which the choices of individuals can still impact all of the world, the galaxy even, positively.
….in which there is true gender equality in the workplace and society.
….in which bad ass ladies are the ones saving the day and themselves (and their cat.)
For me, the future of Blythe is art that entertains but can also make us consider our moment in the evolution of human civilization, and dolls representing the tough chicks we will all need to be to fight the forces that wish to deny us that future.
My Ellen Ripley’s base doll is Curly Blue Babe. I’ve given her a reroot of soft Gotland lamb locks, her Nostromo flight suit and underwear, three pairs of my hand painted eye chips, and custom pull charms. She’ll travel in her own space suit carrying case, snuggled in with Jones the cat, her own flame thrower, and unfortunately….a face hugger (because how else would we get to Aliens 2…)
