back to childhood...

Here it is, my new/old hobby: sewing clothes for playable dolls. Since I was a kid I was spending more time while making clothes for dolls than playing with them. Then I grew up, and I was to shy to continue with this pleasant occupation... well I had to find a "serious" profession for me and etc. ...And now, that I am 30, I've finally realized that people live just ones, and they have to live their life with a light and happy heart, doing what they love to do, being with people which they love to be with.
So here she is, my Blythe dolly and her new black dress :)
...oh I'd wish I'd had another camera, this one is old already, and it's just impossible to take good quality pictures with it :(...

working working working

yes yes, I know, I should post more often, but the times goes so fast that weeks are just passing by and I do not notise them... Most probably it is all becouse of so many things I am doing at this time. :)

I am finishing a doll for a virtual exibition in some russian doll-makers forum (can't show her right now - it is supposed to be a seecret :) ).

I have also started a new doll, her name is "Muse of the sleepless night". It is pretty veird how she appeared in my head... One night I just couldn't fall asleep. Turning from one side to another I was laying in a bed with my eyes opening by them self. (I have to say that it never happens to me, as I usualy fall asleep as soon as I put my head on a pillow). And then while staring at the sealing, this doll came to my mind. Such a clear image with all details - she was just ready to be made - I didn't even need any skeching.. And then I felt asleep. In the morning of the next day I woke up so good rested, I went to my studio and started sculpting her :)
I've got also some an idea of a new tipe of construction, I want her to be able to change positions whle benting arms and legs, but at the same time I do not want to make her body ball-jointed.

Annnnd... one more thing has pulled my attention last days and ocupyed all my free time. In the breackes between sculpting and painting, while waiting for my dolls to get dry, I am creating clothes for a Blythe doll. It is so much fun... I haven't been sewing for factory made dolls since I was small kid. I have rediscovered this ocupation right now and it is so intertaming for me, and also so relaxing: I am just waching videos on youtube and embroidering or beading those small cute dresses :) I hope to take pictures of them soon :)
