Welcome to the Dark Carnival! Preview Shop Update 2/28 5pm pst

Etsy Shop Update 2/28 at 5pm pst :D
Meet Adrianna the Dark, Dorina the Brooding and Ecaterina the Innocent
 Mysterious things happen at the carnival. People have been known to go missing and no one ever looks for them. What you think is real could just be the lighting in the funhouse. But for those that live at The Dark Carnival there is no other way and no better way ;)

 Ecaterina The Innocent

wasn't sure how she came to the Carnival. Telling her story to the others she wonders if she has always been here. She knows no life outside the tent walls and is sure she does not want to.

approx 12" length double jointed hat is not removable

$185.00 usd SOLD

Dorina the Brooding
always felt like she wasn't good enough. There were far prettier girls in the Carnival with talents that exceeded her own. Inside she just knew she did not deserve the attention she received. With a pout on her face she struggled through the day.

Dorina $185.00 usd SOLD
approx. 12" length double jointed removable hat

Adrianna The Dark
was a wonder on stage she could twist and turn contorting with the best. She thrived in the spotlight. The after hours were much darker for her, being alone with her thoughts were not her best times.

Adrianna The Dark approx. 12" length removable hat
 double jointed
$185.00 usd SOLD

And something extra special! 
Hugs and thanks soo much!

Howdy! Tiny Toes

Hello! it has been a bit since I just said Hi. I have been having fun playing dolls and trying new things ;) 

and after making the last standing dolls I had such an urge to make the shelf sitters again it was like I was away from them for too long! lol Almost like cheating on them! hahaha

So I created 2 12" Victorian Memento Mori girls and ahhh I feel back to myself lol!
These girls have little toes. ;)

I was reminded by a suggestion from a friend that I should make toes;
 I had forgotten some of my first art dolls had toes!

Pippa from 9/2011
Ash from 10/2011

Clara from 10/2011

It is surreal to look back at these Art Dolls and use an element I had long forgotten. I am seeing a lot of muslin muted colors too. Toes muted colors and flowers lol

Valentines Day Shop Update Sweetie!

Wandering through Wonderland :)
I have wanted to make some standing dolls for what seems like forever since I discovered Art Dolls. I have either never had the time or the guts. lol These Dolls represent a personal goal for me and I am so happy I took the plunge :D
Etsy Shop Update 2/14 at 2pm pst.

Something else new for me...the little pull toy and the wagon
I love the idea of these and think you will be seeing this type thing in the future lol

Each one of these Dolls is constructed a bit differently. Alice is sculpted onto her stand and while her arms are pose-able her legs are fixed to forever wander through wonderland.
The Queen can be removed from her stand as only her feet are in a fixed position on the base, she lifts right off. And Then there is my daydreamer Heather Lynnwood she has no stand but can stand on her own ;) Balancing on her feet.

 Alice approx. 12" height 
$245.00 usd

The Queen of Hearts approx. 12" height
$245.00 usd
Heather Lynnwood

approx. 11' height 
$215.00 usd

Thanks so much for looking at my New Art Dolls ;)

Steampunk RA88ITs in the Shadows
I have been bit by the Bunny Bug I guess lol
These 3 mini 9" girls are sort of a continuation of my Steamie Rabbits I did last year. ;)

RA88ITs were born in the Spring season to a settlement near the reactors; where the earth is still warm. These small pale skinned creatures all had light colorful hair;  thought to be from the radiation still present. There eyes were a reddish hue that reminded the elders of 
 an old tattered childrens book left behind in the colony.  The elders saw odd pictures of beings with long protrusions atop their heads. It was then decreed that all Children of Spring shall be identified with the protrusions, well their version of them. 

Little Steamie shoes with eyelets and golden painted details
