Not Dead Yet…

One square inch takes about 2.5 hours to complete by hand…so it should come as no surprise why bobbin lace was so valued in days of old. And when you use silk and precious metals to compose your unique symphony, then it becomes evident why lace was virtually considered ‘currency’ then, and a supreme symbol of wealth and power. On a recent trip to … Read More Not Dead Yet…

J’adore Dior

He is arguably one of the greatest contributors to modern fashion – possibly the greatest. He is Christian Dior, and his name goes to many ears without a need of introduction. In his early days as a boy in Granville, through the influence of mother, beauty and gardens around him, Dior ascended to the fashion world mostly as a dreamer, contributing to the Paris fashion scene via such initial … Read More J’adore Dior

The Modsdoll Interview with Yian

Interviewing someone who speaks little of your language is a challenge, and yet, speaking with Yian Lee of The Modsdoll, I felt my mind fill with images, inspirations and sounds that fill her day-to-day world in South Korea. She is a mother, an artist, and a business person – she is also a dreamer who seems electrified by the colors and visuals that paint … Read More The Modsdoll Interview with Yian

Because Everyone Wants a little head…

You heard me… Many fashion doll collectors tend to stick to offerings directly from the manufacturer – some even venture into artist dolls. However, most fashion doll collectors experience original work through customization, as in re-painted faces or re-styling of the hair. A very precious few are bold enough to venture into complete doll makeovers, which can involve re-sculpting – a harrowing feat with … Read More Because Everyone Wants a little head…

Breaking News – GlamourOz Dolls Confirmed to Production

I have had a truly fucked fall. And as is true of most Tommydoll posts, this will include a fair amount of Tommy Drama…so deal with it… Not since my being laid off from Tonner in 2010 have I felt so disparaged by the doll world. Not that they haven’t been supportive in some ways, mind you…but also in other ways that totally and … Read More Breaking News – GlamourOz Dolls Confirmed to Production
