I accidently came across a little cutie the other day and although it was love at first sight, my purse was relieved that this one's pre-order date had been and gone.
Then out of the blue one became available on the USA secondary market, but the lass had not received the doll as yet. I made enquiries and with her help we arranged for the doll to come to me straight from the artist Liz Frost of Wizworx (whom I paid, then Liz refunded the original payment back to the lass who had previously paid for the doll).
Of course the doll (which could easily be a boy or a girl, hence the names Finn or Fifi) will come to me quite naked, but with eyes and face up.
I was thinking this cheeky little face would make a perfect Miss Muffet, who would sit prettily on a tuffet ~ which for those who don't know, is a foot stool or low seat i.e. a pouffe, and something I could easily make myself.
My imagination has already painted a picture in my mind, and I can see her in a pretty bonnet, wearing a dress of white broderie anglaise, with bloomers peeking below.
I am extremely happy about supporting Australian BJD artists, and overjoyed to have finally discovered some "home grown" talent.
Both recent doll purchases, are the size I love best of all (around 13-14" tall) ~ so I have a feeling there will be many more Liz Frost and Kaye Wiggs dolls arriving in my studio in the not too distant future . . . so much for saying no more dolls!! :)
