Recent Felt Dolls

Among my recent shop updates were these guys :)


And there are going to be more felt dolls that can be used as ornaments to come.

Oh, and I never got to post Invader Zim & Gir, but these were for a friend a few months ago,







Pretty cute bunch, aren't they?

Updates: wearables and etc

So, a few matters of business, 

1. My lax (some might say, "lazy"- eep) posting was also a product of technical difficulties that were  solved by finding the perfect browser, so hopefully more frequent posts.

2. I've updated my Etsy shop with a mix of silk, felt and wearable items.

3. Yes, wearable items. Items like these garters:





 and soon, other wearables and dolls too :)

4. I have a new art doll I'll be releasing soon, she's been a big project for me, my first trial in mixing fabric and clay pieces. I'm pretty excited for her... (Hint: trying to finish her in time for Halloween & Dia de los Muertos.)

Exquisite Garden Peacock


This is my latest doll, part of my Exquisite Garden collection, a kind of magical group I've been thinking about. This one is now available in my Etsy shop. I imagine him on his own, or a bjd companion.

I finally finished my Lady doll, one started ages ago and inspired to Maid Marian.

The Frog Terrarium

Much like the Diamonds & Bones terrarium I made a couple months ago, I found another set of interlocking glassware, this time: a candle holder, and a vase. Once I realized they fit, I had to make this frog a home:

A Taste of Things to Come... "The Exquisite Garden"


I've been lying low on Etsy for a while now,  partly from "real job" working, but also because I've slowly been progressing different projects. The things I've been working on are not necessarily related in function, but the aesthetic and idea are the same...

Objects plucked from "The Exquisite Garden."

 While there isn't a set date yet, I think this is a good representation of the things to come.

Window Dressing: Honey NY April 2014

Here are some pictures of a window dressing gig I had for Honey (110 N. 6th Street, Brooklyn NY.) Though I rarely have jobs that are related to my doll making, they needed a Spring Wedding season window and I knew just what it should be: "Garden Party Bridal Shower." 

To make things more "accurate", I made an assortment of "panty pastries." Here are a few pictures:


The full window the night I finished it.


Pantycake, panty parfait, panty cupcakes and a panty(cream)puff in the light of day.
Science has proven that even cute things can be made 1000% cuter with filters. Photo courtesy of Honey NY

Things got weird

 When the snowstorm hit, I already had a little time off, as well as sewing projects to complete, so let's see...

Multiple dolls in various finished states + cabin fever + a dark and sometimes morbid sense of humor

Pretty sure I made the cutest zombies ever.
Lion taming? Kuchi looks nervous.
Oh, you mean it isn't one of those dolls whose heads comes off an it's a knife?
