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

The More You Know – How a Doll is Made…Really.

Class is in session, Puddings… How many of you actually know how a doll is made?

Maybe It’s Tatooine…

“A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away….” If you don’t know this phrase, you really need to get your head out of your ass and live a little… She is perhaps the most iconic princess in cinema history without a tiara – and when she officially became a Disney Princess – well, let’s just say my incontinence was significant.

The Anatomy of a Doll Suit

I love suits. A well-tailored suit is like a magnificent jigsaw puzzle. The pieces of the pattern create a beautifully complicated and horrifically precise portrait of technique, imagination and style. Those who can craft them in 1:6 scale deserve parades in their honor, because it is quite the task just to make a jacket, period – in miniature, wondrous – but in Barbie size? Nobility. … Read More The Anatomy of a Doll Suit

The Anatomy Of A Doll Dress

In the rapture of a moment where a doll collector first beholds any given doll, it is debatable as to what they see first. Is it the doll’s face, or is it the fashion which envelopes the character? A fine line can easily be drawn as to what brings the most appeal, but there is no denying that the clothing elicits a grab on … Read More The Anatomy Of A Doll Dress

It Only Looks Expensive

Despite my rantings here…it’s now time to present the other side of the story… Look, I wore alot of hats when I worked for a doll maker over the course of ten years.
