I've been a busy, busy dollmaking bee, so my apologies for not responding to all the kind comments about the first Alice dolls - thank you all! Just a quickie post here, lest I be any further admonished by dear readers for not sharing this (Kristyn, I have rapped myself on the knuckles, I promise!) There's a short article about me and some photos of the dolls in the April issue of Elle Canada, which is on newsstands now. Woot woot!
You can also see the electronic version here. Mr. L took the photo of me and I think it's pretty funny that neither of us noticed that my bra strap if hanging down over my arm. Ah well... done, like most things, with our usual flourish of disorganization! A special thank you to Katie Addleman for putting together such a nice profile.
And here are the first nine Alice dolls. These are all the smaller ones, and Saturday I will post photos of the larger dolls, as well as some figurines. These are all between 10-11.5" and you might have noticed, a little bit different from my past dolls of this size; I spent more time colouring the faces with pastels to give the faces more depth. I think it also gives them a slightly grittier look, which is a nice contrast to the extreme froufiness of their dresses.
(Disgraceful misspelling of 'albino' but I just noticed it and am too exhausted to change it right now...)
