I have lots of ideas for dolls ….. traditional, contemporary, something mysterious or dark and ideas in experimental directions. As I started to play with the idea of dolls there was an insistent desire to make a doll my 11 year old self would have loved. A doll with layers of fancy unmentionables under her gown. To have the fun of dressing her, to indulge in tinyness and nostalgia. I got lost in it. All the while feeling – more of this please.
I love her like you love a doll, an odd little doll.
