But it’s through romance novels that some of doll artistry lends itself to the most sublime of themes not only in costume, but theme and emotion. By the way, MetroDolls has souvenirs for sale … Read More Truce

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…

2015 – The Year That Was in Dolls

What an interesting year for dolls, indeed. Whereas we were missing the pomp and circumstance of big anniversary passages in 2014, 2015 still delivered all the goodies. Mattel, on more than one occasion, left us scratching our heads with new promotions, Integrity unleashed its usual round of 4.5 trillion dolls, Superdoll continued to amaze and delight, virtually nothing happened with Madame Alexander, and Tonner … Read More 2015 – The Year That Was in Dolls

Happy Christmas!!!

Because nothing says ‘Happy Christmas‘ like an axe and some S&M bondage – but I don’t have to explain it, Puddings…it’s Superdoll. My holidays were complete as I received dolls #1 and #2 (Midnite and Valkyre) from Superdoll’s 2015 Holiday offerings. And no, I noted no unusual knee joint issues on either of these beauties. The third doll, Forest, goes on sale tomorrow for … Read More Happy Christmas!!!

Kingdom Doll GLOWS in Our 2015 Holiday Shoot!

(CLICK IMAGES FOR LARGER VIEW) I’m still amazed at those who don’t know about Kingdom Doll. Perhaps it’s because they sell out so quickly that few are even able to capture them – no. Much of it really comes from the fact that few subscribe to doll publications, or are otherwise too absorbed in their own doll interests to notice something new. Well, Puddings…these … Read More Kingdom Doll GLOWS in Our 2015 Holiday Shoot!
