Main Movie Dolls

Finally, finally, finally, I can say the dolls for the film are done. They are now on the set and the director, Nathan Ross Freeman, loves them. Woo hoo! What a wonderful experience and two year ride. Any other dolls I make for the set will be icing on the cake. I can't believe I did it.  I'm so proud of myself and I've learned so much about me, my doll making process, designing new dolls.  I can mark this project off my list.

I feel fantastic! I'm giddy with joy and I'm ready for the next big project and 50 thousand little ones. I have amazed myself. Of all the times I could have given up and I didn't because I made a promise to Nathan but also to myself. What was I made of? Well, let me tell you, I'm made of pretty good stuff. I can do anything now.

This is a doll for one of the main characters. She has a choice to make, the armed forces or higher education.



This character has the choice of staying a waitress or becoming a doctor.




I haven't made actual doll clothes in years, at least 15.


This character has issues about childhood and adulthood.


 
Here is the main characters doll that will help her do some not-so-nice things.



This is a pincushion the main character uses. An experiment gone awry. It's pretty gruesome but the character has some issues. Don't you love that word? Issues. I can now move on to other projects. I have a brand new slate to scribble on. First, I'll have to clean up my studio. It think I'll take a nap first.

Hello, Girlfriend
Wow! You're finished? Time surely does fly when you're.......(dedicated to creating)!
What a wonderful time for you in this life's journey. A wonderful time for me too because parts of it have been with you!
Your dolls sing with personality and have life in their stitches.
Seeing them on the "big screen" will just be icing on the cake after experiencing their birthing here in cyberspace.

Thanks Steven. I can't believe how fast time has gone by but they are done and a hit. When I think about it, I still get all tingly inside. My studio is almost ready for me to start on something else.

Snow

Wow! Winter has come. Yep, like so many others in the country, we finally got snow. Lots of snow. About eight inches. That may not seem like...
